TripAdvisor 2019 Travelers Choice - Top 25 Destinations in the World

Category : Property Market News | Posted On 2019-05-15 00:00:00

TripAdvisor just released their 2019 Travelers Choice Top Destinations in the World. And Phuket Thailand has crept into a top 10 spot just behind Bali Indonesia. Phuket is a living postcard, a Thailand paradise that feels like a fantasy. Thailand's largest island is an international magnet for beach lovers and jet setters.

In the TripAdvisor 2018 Travelers Choice Top 25, Phuket Thailand was ranked11th, moving up 5 spots this year due to the popularity of travelers. Blue lagoons and salmon sunsets make for a dream-like atmosphere, and indeed, a vacation here can feel a bit surreal. Watersports are the most popular activities, though once you’ve had enough sun there’s still plenty to explore at the island’s aquariums, gardens, and Buddhist temples.

Phuket is Asia's premier resort island with amazing natural beauty including white sand beaches, amazing diving, first-class resorts and spas, championship golf courses, yacht marinas, fine restaurants, vibrant nightlife, and excellent shopping. Phuket has one of the fastest growing property markets in the world with an increasing number of high-quality projects by internationally-renowned real estate developers. Environmentally friendly planning and zoning laws ensure that developments are low key and low density.

Phuket is Thailand's wealthiest province and also the jewel in the crown of Thailand's tourism industry, therefore receiving a high degree of protection and investment from the central government in Bangkok. The cost of living in Phuket is low compared to Australia, North America, and Europe or other premier resort destinations. Fortune magazine recently named Thailand as one of the top ten places in the World to retire, “where you can still live like a King on your savings”.

Phuket's appeal is so strong that it was one of the only places in Asia that were unaffected by the Asian economic crisis during the 1990s and the World economic crisis of late. Property values rebounded quickly after the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami which was the last market low.

Rental returns on condominiums and villas continue to remain high as more and more holidaymakers are opting for the privacy of a rental property over a resort accommodation. With visitor arrivals predicted around 6 million annually and the demand for holiday rentals continuing to grow. Infrastructure and services continue to improve at a fast pace. With two international standard hospitals on the island, quality healthcare is available at a fraction of the cost in the West.
