- ‘Bangkok’s Hamptons’: why Thailand’s elite are buying beach properties in Hua Hin

● Property prices have soared in the town, about three hours south of Bangkok, which offers sandy beaches and good restaurants without Pattaya’s sleaze
● As with the New York getaway, many Bangkok residents want to escape the traffic and pollution, with the coronavirus pandemic nudging them to make a move
Worn out by coronavirus restrictions, pollution and traffic gridlock, wealthy Bangkok residents are buying up bolt-holes in the southern beach retreat of Hua Hin as the pandemic sparks a lifestyle pivot away from the big city.
Famed for its long white sandy beach and rolling green hills, and without the sleazy reputation of the eastern resort of Pattaya, Hua Hin has been a cool-air retreat for Thailand’s royals since the early 20th century. About three hours’ drive from Bangkok, it has become increasingly popular as an upscale weekend getaway destination.
The old town is known for its seafood restaurants on wooden stilts over the sea, and bars mostly owned by Western retirees. But there are signs of change as slick beach clubs spring up further along the beach for the Bangkok party set, while luxury condos and golf courses dot the surrounding hills.-- © Copyright South China Morning Post 2021-10-1615 October 15 20211235636
