Every year, more and more tourists flock to Thailand’s golden shores and majestic temples. In fact, in 2016, more than 32 million travelers booked a holiday to the Land of Smiles to explore all that this diverse land has to offer.
Thailand is such a magnificent country that is always popular among tourists from the world over. And it's not just the geographical beauty that they are drawn to. The very nature of Thai people are the reason why Thailand is known as the "Land of Smiles". The moment you arrive, you are greeted with a smile, folded hands and light bow. It doesn't take long for a tourist to fall in love with Thailand. Most visitors do, and many of them come back for a second or third visit. Thailand simply has so much to offer to travelers and residents.
Here are a few reasons why people love Thailand:
It’s Traveller Friendly
You won’t be alone in Thailand; you’ll always see travellers, expats and tourists. It’s Thailand, that is the way it is now. Once a hedonistic destination for backpackers, it has turned into a country for all tourists. Farangs is what the Thai’s refer to expats and who are always there to help.
The food is exquisite, Pad Thai, Massaman Curry, these are some of Thailand’s favourites and the flavours are exquisite. You have to eat the local food! It is part of why Thailand is so popular. It boasts some of the greatest cooks and food dishes in the world.

Islands in Gulf of Thailand
Away from the Andaman sea, the islands of Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao in the eastern gulf provide more of a secluded island experience. Koh Phangan is where the infamous Full Moon parties are held every month, but if that's a little too noisy for you, the bigger island of Koh Samui strikes the right balance for being a resort island and party town without leaving you burned out.
Koh Samui, is tucked between between Indonesia and Indochina and is an often over-looked tropical treasure. On Koh Samui you will discover small villages built entirely of bamboo, lush jungle interiors and turquoise-fringed beaches. Samui’s amazing landscapes are just a fraction of the appeal; the local culture gives you a taste of the region’s Asian traditions and a unique heritage preserved in hidden Buddhist temples with their iconic, gilded-red roofs, and resilient fishing villages on the Southern coast.
While tourism and a burgeoning bohemian class of artists has brought a wave of new resorts and international restaurants to the dusty white shores, Koh Samui still offers a casual, relaxed alternative to more traditional beach holidays. Family-owned seafood restaurants still offer authentic, unadulterated Southeast Asian cuisine, whilst upscale boutiques are also to be found.
Based on the above, it should be of no surprise that the real estate market in Thailand, and in particular Koh Samui, is steadily on the rise. There are some absolutely exceptional properties being built here and Prime New Developments is so please to represent five of these on the island.
One of favourites, Dove Luxury Villas is currently offering early investor promotions and was featured in the Sunday Times this week.
In Koh Samui, net returns in excess of 8% are achievable from rental revenue. There are of course many factors contributing to these high returns such as the rise of affluent tourism as Koh Samui has become an internationally renowned luxury island destination. In addition, several of our properties are close to the excellent International School in Koh Samui.
You may be considering a permanent move, retirement and/or investments.
Regardless, please take a moment to look at our spectacular properties.
