  3. Phuket property glut?

    NICE joke, drive around, see all the EMPTY, half finished shop houses, condos, see the TERRIBLE traffic over Patong hill ( as now instead of 1 big bus they are replaced with 6 mini bus's) which will get much worse when the high season gets here. Traffic between Kamala and patong really bad now> drive the kathu- bypass road to Tesco and look at the 100's of shop houses empty Yes new central mall due to open, which means the current number of shoppers (just cause a new mall opens does not mean more shoppers), will have Twice as many places to not spend their baht. Could go on and on... PS Jan 23 2016 to oct 14th is NOT 2 1/2 years 55555
