Life’s A Beach on Beautiful Phuket

Lifes a beach on Phuket

Maybe it’s because there are highly cost effective flights from Australia directly to Phuket, or perhaps it’s simply the vast range of stunning locations on and around the island, but Aussies love this jewel set upon the sparkling Andaman Sea

For active retirees there are sports galore (on land and sea), a robust social scene with clubs and societies to suit all interests, together with wonderful cafés and restaurants, and of course a bustling nightlife environment. But those looking for a quieter life, there also plenty of options. Away from Phuket Town and the busy beach areas, there are gorgeous secluded locations. Still within easy reach of all major amenities, but far enough so as immerse yourself in Thai culture and the local scenery.

Retire to Asia
Phuket offers high quality medical facilities, a wide range of local and international shopping, plus cuisine from every corner of the globe. The cost of living is higher in Phuket than most of Thailand, but still some 70% cheaper than Australia on average.

Home away from home

For Aussies who call this island home, but still enjoy a taste of life from down under, there are plenty of bars to gather and catch some of the big games from Oz, be it AFL, NRL, Rugby, the A League or Cricket. The atmosphere is great and no less rowdy than if you were sitting in the MCG.

Just this week, Retire to Asia caught both the State of Origin, and Sydney vs Hawthorn games, set amongst the palm trees and cascading waves upon Patong Beach. Fantastic. 

Another big draw card is the islands international airport. Not only are there direct flights to Australia, you can also fly direct to China, Singapore, Malaysia, Korea, Hong Kong, Dubai, the Philippines and seasonally many European destinations. Add to this the numerous domestic locations, and your options are almost limitless. 

Phuket is an exciting, friendly, highly affordable home away from home. So whether you’re looking to spending 3 or 6 months of the year in this wonderful location, or looking for something more permanent, contact us and let the team at Retire to Asia show you the way.
