Wichit in Phuket, Thailand: a place for comfortable living

Wichit is an area in Phuket, situated between Chalong and Phuket Town. The boundaries of Wichit are blurred in the minds of its residents as it merges organically with its neighbouring areas to the north and south.

Cape Panwa and Ao Yon Bay are one of the few places in the area that could be considered a tourist destination. It should be noted, however, that there is no mass tourism here. The villas in Panwa are typically chosen by people with above-average incomes who value peace and quiet. The surrounding Thai villages remain largely unchanged despite the decades of tourism development in Phuket.

Meanwhile, other areas of Wichit are favoured by long-term expats who may not even realise they live in Wichit. They may think their house or apartment is in Chalong, Kathu or Phuket Town.

Wichit offers a variety of housing options, including popular condominiums such as The Base, Centrio, and Zcape, as well as pleasant Thai villages like the Phuket Villa ones. These villages are particularly attractive to expats seeking a leisurely Thai lifestyle combined with affordable housing.

Many villages have a communal swimming pool and sports ground, as well as other everyday facilities such as shops, cafes, hairdressers, beauty salons, and shoe repair shops.

Who is Wichit for?

Wichit is an ideal location for those who have already settled in Phuket and wish to experience a Thai or semi-Thai lifestyle. Local villages and condominiums offer the best of both worlds: European comfort and the affordable Thai cost of living. Furthermore, Wichit is just as convenient for transportation as Kathu, Phuket Town, and Chalong.

Places of interest in Wichit

Wichit boasts many points of attraction, such as a year-round beach located in Ao Yon Bay, the Central Phuket shopping centre, international schools, hospitals, and other essential living infrastructure.

I have been living in Phuket for over 16 years and interact with people a lot. More than once I have witnessed the delight of women who come to spend their pregnancy and give birth in Phuket. Medical care is at the highest level here. Babies are immediately brought to their mothers after childbirth in local hospitals.

Property prices in Wichit

Wichit is a large area with a variety of housing options. However, in most cases, these houses and apartments are located far from the sea. The cost per square metre in the Central condominium starts at 75,000 US dollars. A detached two-storey house in the village can be bought from 150,000 US dollars, but there is a wide range of prices in this segment.
