In the hills or by the sea, Accessibility is the key
Investors can rest assured that resort and retirement destinations that claim proximity to natural attractions and increasing ease of transport, like Hua Hin, Khao Yai, Phuket and Chiang Mai, will continue to boom
The Thai market today offers an increasing number of options for resort homes and retirement destinations. There is a clear choice: Hua Hin, Pattaya and Phuket are at the forefront of beach destinations, while Chiang Mai and Khao Yai are the top choices for those seeking the hillside resort experience. Each category is unique in character, cultural heritage and the type of tourist and buyer it attracts. The common denominator that has been key to the development of these locations is accessibility.
Hua Hin, Pattaya and Khao Yai are smaller towns within driving distance of Bangkok, while Phuket and Chiang Mai are bigger resort cities that most people reach by air. We will take a look at each market to better understand their nature and what they offer.

Chiang Mai has traditionally attracted Thai artists seeking a permanent home or a retirement residence and those who prefer a quiet environment while still having access to the amenities of a developed city.
