Pranburi and surrounding areas are recently becoming popular retirement havens as well as the sites of large up-coming international developments, golf courses and large scale projects. One of the great things about Pranburi, is that the infrastructure is going in before the developments, meaning that the area is capable of facilitating modern development unlike some other areas which are suffering from constant development without the foresight or space to put in the infrastructure.
Popular activities in the area include: kite surfing, river cruises, sea cruises with island hopping, snorkeling, fresh and salt water fishing, kayaking, mixed martial arts (MMA) training, mountain biking, trekking, ATV tours, golf, and much more. There are also water parks, waterfalls, national parks, secluded beaches, safaris, shopping centres, driving ranges, go-kart tracks, yoga studios, fitness centres and many other ways to keep occupied nearby.
The areas also benefit from having mostly full chanote title deeds, which means ownership is legal, full, and safe (contact us for more detailed info on property ownership for foreigners in Thailand).
