Phuket Homes in Chalong – What's Available

Phuket Homes in Chalong – Overview

Phuket Homes in Chalong – In 1999 – 2000 the old Chalong pier was upgraded to a half mile long concrete affair, which breathed new life into the sea sports business and Chalong Town.

Additionally, behind the scenes and off the main roads, home building has been going on, and continues to go on at a furious pace to keep up with the housing demands of an ever increasing population.

Away from Chalong pier, not many businesses cater for the tourism industry, since Chalong is the main commercial centre for the area.

As such, ironmongers and blacksmiths outnumber hot–dog and T–shirt stalls, and Lord be praised, Chalong doesn't have a McDonald's.

Although, there is a Police Station and the only Post Office in the southern part of the island.

Currently (October 2008), a brand new Shopping Plaza, Plaza Dracaena, is being built, which should further reduce the need to travel to Phuket Town for serious retail therapy.

Opened in August 2008, we now have a Tescos sub–branch along with a new bakery and Siam Commercial Bank in a new moderately sized plaza, a mere 5 kilometers from Chalong town.

Commercially, businesses which needed large amounts of "cheap" land arrived in Chalong when it was cheap.

These include the Zoo, the Shooting Range and the Riding Club.

Today, land prices have escalated quite dramatically although in relation to Patong, Karon and Kata, Chalong is still considered good value.

Please note, the area suffers quite badly from traffic problems in the morning and evening peak periods.

This is due to a tiny roundabout in Ha Yaek, (meaning five ways) Chalong Town, which is woefully ill equipped to handle the traffic demands during peak periods.

The latest update on this particular subject is that it was recently decided by the powers that be, to remove the roundabout altogether and install traffic lights, also re–routing traffic leaving the road from Chalong pier.

Everybody in the area is keen to see how this modification will develop and we will keep you updated as it does.
