Phuket has changed a lot since I first stayed here in 1995. We were going to move back in 2014 but after a few months found it to be too congested and beaches too inaccesable with no or very little parking available. What's the point of living here if you can't get to where you want to go without a lot of hassle. Frankly speaking I don't see the attraction anymore unless all you want to do is go to the bars to meet the ladies in waiting. Having said that if you want to buy a nice size building lot not far from a quiet beach area just let me know.
