Beautiful Bang Saray, isn’t just a tagline or something marketing guys have created … it’s a reality.

Only 15 minutes’ drive south from one of Thailand’s busiest beach resorts, Pattaya, you find yourself in Bang Saray.

Don’t let the proximity confuse you, though, as the two places are worlds apart in ambiance.

On arrival in Bang Saray you get a sense of the charm this quaint seaside town has.

Once a small fishing village Bang Saray is now regarded as one of Thailand’s fastest-growing tourist destinations attracting visitors to its pristine beaches and famous seafood restaurants.

Soft sand beaches and a crystal-clear waters aren’t the only things Bang Saray has in its favour, its location couldn’t be more perfect.

Only a 90-minute drive from Thailand’s number one international airport, Suvarnabhumi and 15 minutes outside the vibrant city of Pattaya, Bang Saray is now seeing huge amounts of government money being spent on infrastructure in the surrounding area’s and is quickly becoming the place to be.

Thailand’s Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) is gathering pace and development, meaning the government is spending and spending big on the area with new roads, motorways, easy access as well as proposed high-speed trains from major cities and airports to Bang Saray.

Another plus is the development of nearby Utapao International Airport.

Utapao is set to be Thailand’s third largest airport having recently gone through an upgrade and now caters not only for domestic travel but international, and it’s only a short 20-minute drive from the serenity of Bang Saray.

Don’t worry, as the new highway being built is beyond the hills of Bang Saray ensuring that the airport’s growing importance won’t impact on the town’s tranquility.

In fact, over the past few years the whole area has seen dramatic change with the main Pattaya-Jomtien-Bang Saray road as a prime example, attractions such as Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Gardens (which features daily ‘cultural’ shows and arguably the best collection of flowers and plants in this corner of Thailand), Cartoon Network Amazone Waterpark (boasting all kinds of breath-taking and hair-raising rides) and the recently opened Legend Siam are all just a short drive.

Also, nearby are some of Thailand’s best golf courses. Phoenix and the brand new Chee Chan Golf Resort along with at least 20 courses that rank among the top PGA courses in the country are all under an hours drove and some much closer.

The town itself is also home to five-star resorts such as Kept Bang Saray and U Pattaya as well as many international restaurants and destinations such as Chilli Bang Saray the hip and seek design studio and cafe.

‘Kept is a beautiful resort with tasteful design, decor and furnishings that have a seafaring theme and with its breathtaking seafront location and first class facilities it’s another prime example of Bang Saray’s rise upwards.’

Whether it be full-time as a holiday home or maybe just an investment Bang Saray is fast becoming the educated choice, with it’s clear air and peaceful green lush landscapes as well as its clean and quiet beaches Bang Saray is fast becoming the place to be with land prices on the rise just like it’s neighbours Pattaya, Jomtien and Na Jomtien.

Bang Saray has hung in there with some very attractive land, home and condominium prices but that is changing and now is the time to buy as the return on your investment looks sure to only go in one direction – upwards.
