Some UK Tourists Find Overseas Travel Disappointing Because It’s Just Not British Enough

The team at Krabi Riviera Co., Ltd. likes to keep abreast of customer feedback in the travel services industry. However, when one of the industry’s leading travel agents recently released a selection of amusing comments made by its UK customers, it became clear that some British tourists have extraordinary expectations when traveling overseas.

Life as an Expat in Krabi

Life as an Expat in Krabi

Krabi society is a fascinating melting pot of Buddhists, Thai-Chinese, Moken (or Sea Gypsies), Muslims and a colourful band of expats representing almost every corner of the globe. The Krabi locals, famous for their hospitality and tolerance have been quick to welcome these newcomers that now total somewhere in the region of 2000.

Some simply cannot wait until they are 65 to collect their pension and make financial provisions to retire much earlier, so that they have sufficient time to enjoy their freedom – for them the world truly is their oyster! Retirement is often a catalyst for relocation abroad, and whilst the British have traditionally taken their pensions to countries like Spain or France, many are now tempted by the lure of more exotic countries such as Thailand, where the cheaper cost of living and superb climate are just too hard to resist.

Krabi – A Property Investors Dream!

If you are searching for somewhere solid to invest your precious savings, somewhere that offers both exceptional value for money and the possibility of significant financial return, then purchasing land or property in Krabi could be the answer. The property market is particularly buoyant in Thailand and investors are optimistic that this trend will continue throughout 2012 and for the foreseeable future. Around one third of the Thai population is between twenty four and forty four years of age, an optimal demographic for stimulating the housing market.

Visitors are descending on its vibrant tourist resorts in unparalleled numbers, resulting in record breaking occupancy rates for 2011 and the first two months of 2012.
