Banyan Hua Hin, the healthy active lifestyle community near Thailand’s gulf coast, has seen a sharp rise in sales of its luxury residences in 2021, as urban domestic buyers seek second homes or new permanent bases driven by fast improving international education, medical proficiencies and infrastructure to add to the existing high-quality lifestyle on offer at the coastal destination. Tjeert Kwant, Group CEO of Banyan Thailand, has revealed that transaction values at Banyan Hua Hin have exceeded THB 125 million so far in 2021, which is more than 2020 and the second half of 2019 combined.
