Whilst the development on the island is obvious to see, what’s more important to existing and new business owners on the island is the overall infrastructure development.
An area where we’ve seen major improvements over the past few years has been transport links, with Pattaya U-Tapao airport now offering direct minivan connections to Samet. International flights direct from China began about one year ago and since then the number of Chinese tourists on the island has increased notably.
A more recent development is the new ferries, there are now more ways than ever to get to the island, from private or shared speedboats, the fast ferry and the slow ferry. The more options available to tourists the more successful the island can become, so the improvements are crucial to continuing to increase tourist numbers as we have done so well over the past few years.
