Popular with families for many years, Karon remains one of Phuket's most visited tourist destinations. But residents and investors are now also being attracted to the area. Either they see it as a wonderful place to live or they aim to capitalise on its booming tourism industry.
Kamala Beach has undergone some major development over the last few years and is becoming increasingly popular with tourists. As the number of visitors has been increasing so has the number of new villa and condo projects in the area.
Cape Panwa is a laid back area with lots of fantastic scenery. Property buyers are attracted to this part of Phuket for its relaxed atmosphere and solitude. For anyone seeking a quiet environment in retirement, Cape Panwa could be just the place.
Cherng Talay district is home to Surin, Layan, Bang Tao as well as Laguna and encompasses both Surin and Bang Tao Beaches. This entire area is one of Phuket's up and coming areas and it is easy to see why buyers see this as a great place to live or invest in the Phuket real estate market.
Surin and its beautiful beach has always attracted luxury hotel chains and is renowned for the many multi million dollar villas perched on the mountain side. Its high-end reputation makes it a great place for anyone seeking a solid investment opportunity or for those looking for a beautiful villa or condo to live in.
The Kalim Bay Area is an extension of Patong, but this end of Patong Bay is quiet and perfect for anyone seeking a more toned down type of living. Although it's nice and peaceful, the party atmosphere and abundance of restaurants, nightlife and other amenities are only a walk away.
Layan Beach is one Phuket's most undeveloped areas. It is quiet and peaceful and ideal for those seeking a little solitude. But because it only a short drive from the busier tourist destinations of Laguna, Bang Tao and Surin it is an extremely popular area for tourists. So unsurprisingly property here has great rental potential.
Laguna Resorts have a collection of luxury properties in one of the most desirable locations in all of Phuket. For those looking for resort-style living and finely manicured gardens, it is a great place to buy Phuket real estate.
Chalong is one of Phuket's most popular areas for residents. Its close proximity to Kata, Karon, Rawai, Nai Harn and Patong make it one of the island's major crossroads in the south. The high demand for property in this area make it a great place to invest in the Phuket real estate market.
Mai Khao's 13 km stretch of sand is home to many 5-star resort hotels. For anyone who loves windswept deserted beaches, this area would be a tropical paradise. Development here is slow, but a few condo projects and the odd villa are appearing on or close to the coastline.
Bang Tao is one of Phuket's “up-and-coming” areas, with a beautiful beach and plenty of attractions for both tourists and residents. It is easy to see why it is becoming one of Phuket's most popular areas and a great place to invest in property.
