Why Rich Tourists Are Rushing To Buy Phuket’s Luxury Houses

Phuket is seeing a post-pandemic property boom, as wealthy Russians seek new investment and home opportunities amid the Ukraine war. Aided by relaxed visa rules and legal loopholes, Russians became the island’s second largest group of foreign condominium buyers after Chinese clients in 2023.

An influx of Russians is transforming the holiday island of Phuket, driving up property prices as well as fuelling local resentment over the flow of money into the country.

While Wester
n countries have sought to isolate Russia with sanctions, Thailand has welcomed Russian visitors as it tries to rebuild its tourism industry post-COVID.
The Thai government has recently moved to increase the length of Russian tourist visas from 30 days to 90 days.

Almost half a million Russians arrived in Phuket in the first half of this year and more than 9,000 of those were granted long-stay visas.
To cater to this market, Russian restaurants and businesses have begun popping up, while signs and menus have been translated into Cyrillic.

RUSSIA'S INVASION OF PHUKET | Will The Island Ever Be The Same?

Russian's were flocking to Phuket, Thailand for vacation for decades before the war broke out, but now it is on a WHOLE OTHER LEVEL. Tourism from Russia has absolutely boomed on the island since conscription began and many of those visitors arrived on a one way ticket.

This new change in demographic has a significant impact on the tourism sector, as well as the general economy for regular Thai Phuket residents.

I was absolutely shocked to see just how much the island has changed from the last time I was there in 2021 and how Russian is almost the dominant language that you hear in all the popular tourist neighborhoods.

Join me and my Dad on a tour of Kata and Karon area as I share my opinion about what this potentially means for Phuket going forward. Would love to know your thoughts in the comments!

Russians Flock To Thailand After War In Ukraine: Are They Welcome?

Two years of war in Ukraine. Some Russians, escaping the draft or the dour economic situation at home, have moved to Thailand. Many found their way to the island of Phuket. On one hand, the influx of Russian visitors has helped to boost the recovering tourist industry. On the other, Russian investors have driven up property prices, while long-stay tourists are stealing jobs from locals. As more Russians are expected to arrive in 2024, what impact will this have on the 400,000 residents of Phuket?
