Cover Story – Samujana is The Crown Jewel of Koh Samui
The events of the past six months probably have you dreaming about owning a luxurious villa in some faraway tropical paradise. A destination where all you have to worry about is relaxing. A place where the only people that can find you are the ones you want to find you. Chances are your dreams look exactly like Samujana.
Special Feature – The Philippines makes its case to be Southeast Asia’s leading retirement destination
Those wanting to retire in Southeast Asia have no shortage of options. Thailand continues to be popular in spite of an opaque visa process. Malaysia is another retirement hotspot with the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) program making it easy to purchase property and obtain a long-stay visa.
However, the Philippines stands out as perhaps being the most welcoming place for an international retiree, and we aren’t simply talking about the warm hospitality the country is known for.
Insights – Vietnam is becoming a second home destination for international property buyers
The Vietnam tourism property market is still relatively new, but it is a segment many experts have pointed to as having the potential for strong development. That’s due to rising foreign and domestic tourism alongside a growing number of appealing holiday destinations.
According to Kenneth Atkinson, Founder and Senior Board Adviser at Grant Thornton Vietnam, foreign homeowners could be a major factor in sustaining the tourism market over the long term.
Trends – Japanese ski properties are a must own for Asia’s lifestyle real estate investors
America has Aspen and Vail. Europe has the Alps. All are lovely places, but not exactly convenient destinations for skiers in Asia. That fact led to the rise of Hokkaido as the region’s snowy retreat during the winter months. First there was Niseko, but now Kiroro has emerged as a prime location for Japanese ski properties.
Located on the north slopes of Mount Yoichi, Kiroro has become popular due to the fact it’s closer to both Sapporo and New Chitose International Airport than Niseko. Meanwhile, the skiing is just as good while a new property development is allowing real estate investors to own a home in this winter wonderland.
