Property in Pattaya Twice as Popular


Property in Pattaya is almost three times more popular than property in Phuket, according to The Move’s latest At a Glance report.

The infographic, which depicts activity on the overseas portal over the last 12 months, shows that the Chon Buri hotspot accounted for one-third (32.9 per cent) of all searches for Thai real estate - almost three times as many as the city of Phuket (13.51 per cent).

Phuket and Pattaya have long rivalled each other for investors' attention, but the latter's beaches attracted more interest in the past 12 months. Both cities dwarf the capital of Bangkok, which accounted for only 5.38 per cent of searches by buyers, making it the sixth most popular destination in the country.

When it comes to enquiries, though, the infographic paints a different picture, with Phuket responsible for the most buyer activity.

Property in the province of Phuket generated 44.1 per cent of enquiries, ahead of Chon Buri, which received 42.9 per cent.

Editor Ivan Radford comments:

"Phuket and Pattaya have been in close combat for many years now and our At a Glance research gives a clear picture of which one is the more popular: buyers are committed to purchasing property in Phuket, but the age-old appeal of a seaside home means that the majority still look to Pattaya first. The beach resort's profile has been boosted further by the fact that it remained unaffected by last year's floods."
