Phuket is the largest Thai island. With its 576 km2, it is about the same size as Singapore. 48km separate the north of the island with the south. So, the question, where to live and where to invest, can be asked.
Indeed, the quality of life and lifestyle will vary greatly if you decide to live in Patong, Phuket town, Kamala, Surin, Bangtao or Rawai.
In this article, we will present the advantages of living and investing in real estate in the south of Phuket, in Rawai / Naiharn.
Rawai and Naiharn
The district is called Rawai, but in fact Rawai is made up of a number of “villages” and beaches. Rawai beach is part of the Rawai district. It is a rather pleasant beach for walking, it contains all the fishing and tourist boats and is lined with bars and restaurants. The perfect place to enjoy seafood at night.
Naiharn is “THE” beach of Rawai, and one can even say, one of the most beautiful beaches of Phuket. Naiharn is lined with conifers and the sand is crystal white. It is the favorite place of Thai people on weekends. Tourists from Patong come to Naiharn to find the spirit of a beach paradise. It is possible to surf and even paraglide.
Dream location in Phuket
Rawai is located in the extreme south of Phuket Island. This part is at the same time, one of the wildest parts with very beautiful beaches, a magnificent coastline, but also with all the amenities such as Makro, BigC, tesco lotus. Some of the best restaurants are also located in Rawai. Excellent French restaurants like Zen-eat held by the chef Sylvain.

- Karon beach, one of the biggest
- Patong, for partying
- The shopping center “Cental“
- Phuket town, for the authenticity
- Chalong bay for sailing and kitesurfing
- The point of Leam Promthep
- Panwa cap
- Banana beach on Koh Hei
- The big buddha
- And finally just 50 min from the airport by the expressway, much faster than by the coast.
