Going to Thailand

Phuket is particularly known in Thailand and around the world as the ideal island to enjoy the sun, heavenly beaches, and nightlife, while being able to visit many cultural relics. Phuket properties for sale know how to distinguish itself by its diversity for expatriates wishing to enjoy the pearl of the Andaman Sea. In recent years, the number of French expatriates in Thailand has increased significantly. Indeed, beyond the activities preferred by tourists, the city has many assets allowing a greatest number of people to settle for the long term. This city abounds with beautiful places less known to tourists, ideal to take full advantage of expatriation.

The North

This part of Phuket is really different from the lively and very touristic idea that we often have of the island. You will find a much calmer atmosphere, with paradise beaches like Mai Khao Beach, worthy of a postcard, perfect to be in complete tranquility. This beach borders the natural park of Sirinat, very beautiful to go for a walk in family, in love, or even alone to recharge your batteries. This area is ideal for families wishing to stay all year round. There are new developments of family villas, built in a more natural and environmentally friendly way: this makes them all the more atypical. The North is therefore very good if you want to move with your family in a place close to nature while remaining very modern or even upscale. This neighborhood is also quite close to the airport, an international school and a hospital.

The South

The South Phuket district represents the heart of the island : younger, more dynamic and ideal for people staying a few months before going to seek calm or discovering another region of Thailand. 

This region is for you if you like to meet people, party, go diving or even try new water activities. 

In the South, you will find various districts where you will be able to expatriate: Patong, Kata or Nai Harn.

Patong is right in the center of Phuket, you will mainly find apartments there. The Nai Harn district is a little more quiet, made up of apartments and villas. Kata is a very pleasant district to go for a walk and admire the villas of millionaires.

Phuket Town 

Phuket Town represents the old city of Phuket, it is mainly inhabited by Thai people and is very traditional. You will not be at the foot of the beaches but there are some tourists. The astonishing architecture of this city is of Chinese-Portuguese influence, with houses with sparkling colors and an atmosphere of quite incredible authenticity. It is a good place for people who work and for families who want more civilization. This historical city to visit is an authentic place to settle in the heart of the Thai people.
