Why Phuket Thailand is the
best place for retirement?
No other tropical island in Southeast
Asia gained a worldwide recognition as one of
the world's most outstanding holiday destinations faster
than Phuket, also called the 'Pearl of the South'.
Phuket, with 540square kilometres,
is Thailand's biggest island and about the same size as
Singapore. Phuket is easily accessible by air (international
airport), land and sea and ideal for a short break or
a relaxing vacation. Phuket's westcoast features white
sand beaches and low forested mountains with granite rock
formations in between. Phuket has a rich infrastructure
and specialized shops for any imaginable daily needs are
in easy reach. Phuket Town has a diversity
of shops and businesses which is comparable to European
standard. From Computer shops over web design companies
to selected antique and handicrafts - all can be found
here! Also much of Phuket's forest has been cut down to
be replaced by rubber plantations and tourism purposes,
virgin rainforest and lush vegetation can still be experienced
during a visit at the Khao Phra Thaeo Park.
The most popular beaches in Phuket
are Patong, Nai Harn, Kata, Karon and Kata Noi,
the home of Seaview Real Estate. From all of these beaches,
Kata Noi has still the atmosphere and flair of Phuket's
old days, when it was an insider tip rather than a major
tourist destination. You will find cozy beach restaurants
and secluded beach areas without the fuzz and buzz of
the wide beaches such as Patong.
The Andaman Sea invites for exciting
snorkelling and diving
adventures as, besides the outstanding coral reefs of
Phuket itself, the surrounding islands feature some of
the most diverse and beautiful marine eco systems in Southeast
Asia. Even the famous Phi Phi Islands, which gained fame
as it was the setting for the movie 'The Beach' are in
easy reach by boat from Phuket. The Khao Sok National
Park, just to the north and east off Phuket, features
tropical forest still remote enough to inhabit wild tigers.
Many safaris, daytrips and overnight tours to national
parks and surrounding islands are available.
