Only two-and-a-half-hour drive from Bangkok, you will find a hidden jewel, located on the Gulf of Thailand. Once a quiet fishing village, Hua Hin has developed into a favorite escape destination for wealthy residents of Bangkok and expats looking to fulfill their dream of retiring in the tropics. Due to its peaceful environment, quality restaurants, luxury hotels and a large presence of both local and international community, Hua Hin properties are in high demand, as this area continuously attracts new investors, developers and retirees. Let’s look at 5 reasons to invest in Hua Hin property market:
Hua Hin property market prices are significantly lower than other key areas in Thailand. For as little as 7,000,000 Thai Baht (215,000 USD or 160,000 GBP), you can spoil yourself with a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom villa of standard quality. Due to the market becoming more competitive, developers are becoming more creative in design and selective in choosing building materials, supplying the market with higher quality properties at affordable price. This gives the potential buyers an opportunity to capitalize on the market and get great value for money. Cost of living in the area is also very affordable when compared to Bangkok and other popular tourist destinations.
Hua Hin is conveniently located only 2.5 hours from Bangkok by road and less than 2 hours from Pattaya by ferry. Easy access to beautiful beaches and peaceful environment made Hua Hin one of the most popular getaway destinations for Bangkok residents and expats interested in relocating to Thailand. It is also important to mention that, in the near future Hua Hin will be directly connected to Southern China with a high-speed train line that is currently under development. This project is expected to advance the further development of the city as it will take only 45 min from Bangkok airport to Hua Hin, once the high-speed railway is completed. Additionally, another quick access development is underway, which will connect downtown Hua Hin directly to the highway and significantly reduce the traffic jams, making Hua Hin even more accessible and open for further growth.
Hua Hin region is suitably positioned in the centre of narrow Thai-Malay peninsula, with mountain spines rising only twenty kilometres behind the Hua Hin. These mountains protect the region from extreme weather conditions and make it one of the driest places in Thailand. The great misconception is that it rains for most of the monsoon season, however that’s not the case with Hua Hin. While other areas suffer from monsoon rains, strong winds and floods, Hua Hin frequently remains dry and sunny. It is one of the only places in Thailand like this from May to October. This is an advantage for those looking to explore Thailand in the low season, as you can find affordable deals on hotels and enjoy the beaches with less crowd and minimal interruption from the rain.
Hua Hin is one of the safest and most peaceful beach destination in Thailand. It is also a favourite vacation destination of Thai Royal family, which is why the city is clean and safe, with no widespread crime in the streets. It is a perfect place for families and couples who simply want to escape the busy lifestyle and relax in a calm and serene environment. On the other hand, Hua Hin also offers many adventurous activities suitable for young adults and nature lovers, seeking for excitement. The city’s charm lies in ability to combine leisure with adventure and action with relaxation, which attracts a high number of visitors. However, even though Hua Hin is a famous beach town, it managed to remain unspoiled, peaceful and respectable.
For many years, Hua Hin has been recognized as one of the best golfing destinations in Thailand. Within 30-min from the city centre, you can choose between more than ten world class golf courses, and if that’s not enough, there are plenty of other golf courses located slightly further, but still close enough to enjoy a full day of golfing. It is also important to mention that green fees and other expenses are currently among lowest in the world, which is a great value for money considering the excellent maintenance of the golf courses and services provided.
