Samui Phangan Magazine June - July 2018

Good Morning Koh Samui. Welcome to the June July issue of Samui Phangan Real Estate Magazine. This I must say is my favourite time of the year, yes, I know it’s still hot, actually very hot but the heat and the every so often heavy gush of refreshing rain and the growth and green that it produces is just beautiful. Even after all these years of living in Koh Samui it’s still breathtakingly picturesque. I know this is not just Koh Samui or Koh Phangan but the Tropics but the heat with the growth and the greenery will never be tiresome. This edition is again full of some of the most stunning real estate and real estate related topics our wonderful islands have to offer. We have a very interesting article thanks to the Attorneys at Limcharoen (Samui) about separating the legal myths from the actual truths. Here our author corrects some of the false truths relating to Thai law and what foreign property investors and buyers can and cannot legally achieve in Thailand. Some of these myths and false truths have been widely believed and it makes for some interesting reading. We feature in this edition Azur Samui which was the inspiration of property and hotel developer Tim Dean- Smith. Tim has been a long-term friend and business associate from us and is one of the first real ambassadors of Koh Samui. After his success with the amazing Beach Republic Tim set about drawing up an equally spectacular design for this hillside community. You will find inside almost every single business on our islands that is real estate related plus all our articles and tips & tricks for living on our beautiful islands. If you feel there is something missing or you have a certain question you can’t find the answer for please don’t hesitate to contact is at Satayu Publishing.
