Pattaya, Thailand (PressExposure) November 18, 2009 -- The reason for the dramatic difference in the bookings in Thailand and the bookings elsewhere around the world seems to be a combination of the great value that Thailand Holiday Homes offer and the country's reputation for exotic holidays with a smile. Thailand has long been recognised as a great value destination. With prices in flights continuing to drop as airlines offer great discount deals on bookings, the opportunity for a long haul exotic holiday at an affordable price is just too much to resist.
As the number of villa builds has grown, so has the demand for holiday rentals. Many people are choosing to go for the villa market as an option as it offers fantastic luxury accommodation in a home away from home. Many of the villas have two or three bedrooms giving the opportunity for families and group holidays to pool money together and get a fantastic villa rental instead of three hotel rooms.
The villa rental range is broad and the price has been coming down as the rental agents actively encourage more tourists to the land of smiles. As tourists are grabbing bargains with 20 to 30 percent discounts, bookings are rising to the point before the economic downturn. The most popular villas are now fully booked several months in advance. Beachfront and pool villas in Thailand have proved to be the most immune to the world's purse strings tightening and agents are even having to offer alternative accommodation for those searching with little advance booking!
It seems like Thailand's holiday home villa market has weathered the financial storm and bookings are set to hit well over forecast capacity in 2010. Thailand as a long haul luxury destination is sure to continue to be a number one choice for Europeans and other travellers alike.
