C2 CONDOTEL I ARTICLE

Dear Valued Clients, On behalf of Thailand Estates’ Team, I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude and thank all of you for your support and trust in our professional service. From the past 9 years when I started up my real estate career in Koh Samui, I only have had the intention of improving and expanding our service support in order to meet up with your demand, to reach your expectations.

From our original signed agreement with every Narayan Heights property owners, we have extended the deadline of villa construction without charging the 5% penalty initially stated in our written contract as a proof of our good faith. This could have generated a huge income to Thailand Estates but this was not our intention. Despite Thailand recent political turmoil and the current world economic recession, everyone believes that the situation will naturally improve within the next few years as already seen after the Asian financial crisis of 1997. Furthermore, economic specialists trust that Asia will be less affected and will be the first continent to recover. There are still large investor groups and fund managers seeking for investment opportunities in Thailand who trust in a substantial long term growth of Thailand Tourism Industry as well as real estate industry. Therefore, we are seeking for partners who would like to generate a 30% annualized returns without capital risk from our 2 year investment plan.

PROPERTY HOTSPOT I Choeng Mon

SAMUI HOTSPOT 18 THAILAND ESTATES PROPERTY GUIDE I www.ThailandEstates.com


Bophut I PROPERTY HOTSPOT

Located on the north part of Koh Samui, Bophut is the real centre of the island. With fine dining restaurants, superstores, beaches and airport within 5 minutes drive, Bophut is one of the favorite spots for residents and long term holidaymakers.

Bophut is really two places: Bophut beach, which sweeps down several kilometres between Big Buddha and Maenam beaches and perhaps one of the oldest places on the island, the charming Fisherman’s Village, which takes up the middle section of the beach. Fisherman’s Village is fast gaining a reputation that stretches way beyond Samui for being the most elegant and well-preserved place on the island. Lined by old wooden Chinese shop-houses, interspaced with a few modern buildings that match the tone, it retains a distinctly Mediterranean feel. This has probably got a lot to do with the fact that it was the main French outpost on the island for many years. The Bophut area is fast developing in terms of real estate and became the right place for savvy investors. From affordable condominiums to luxury sea view villas, Bophut has a large panel of properties to offer.

Renovation I ARTICLE

Build With Solid Wood

Choose Eco-Friendly “Green” Products and Breathe Easy

Avoid plywood or particle board lumber which is made contain formaldehyde and emit toxic gasses and go for solid wood for furniture, molding, doors, cabinets, kitchen island, tabletops and fireplace mantel. The beauty of natural wood cannot be beat and it’s renewable.

When you’re ready to redecorate, why not move toward an eco-friendly decor? You can achieve a beautiful look and help to achieve a “green” interior by making a wise selection of materials.

“Green” decorating is not new. In fact, it is all the rage. And there’s good reason. Regardless of your position in life, it’s obvious that everyone needs to take baby steps to help conserve the environment. Serious research has been done to identify renewable materials, natural fibers, toxin-free finishes, and low-emission products. Read how to choose “green” when you renovate, remodel, and redecorate your home.

Decorate With Live Plants

One of the simplest ways to freshen indoor air and clear things out is by using live house plants. While artificial plants and flowers add texture and color to a home, some plants can actually cleanse the air you breathe and add beauty at the same time. The best plants are lilies, any variety of English ivy, Chinese evergreen, gerbera daisies, and rubber plants. Read more about air purifying plants.

Choose Natural Fabrics

As people become more aware of the need to use recyclable and eco-friendly materials, natural fabrics are becoming a big part of decorating resources. You’d be amazed how soft sheets made of bamboo are. Hemp fabrics are made from renewable fibers. Nothing can compete with the beauty of 100% linen draperies. Cotton prints cannot be beat. Silk is the epitome of luxury. And wool plaids and solids make magnificent upholstery fabrics. Return to the natural and you won’t miss a thing.

And Natural Fibers

For soft and comfortable cushions, bedding, and pillows, reject polyester or foam filling and discover how wonderful feather, wool, or cotton fills are. You won’t ever want to go back to the synthetic fibers. And these natural fibers are constantly renewable.

Install Wool Carpet

Made without chemicals and harsh dyes, all wool rugs and carpets are biodegradable. While there are a limited number of color choices, wool carpet is woven into many interesting and attractive textures and patterns. Even the backing of jute and natural rubber adhesive are environmentally friendly.

• Recycled Wood Cabinets and Molding

By refinishing or repainting old cabinets, moldings, doors, and floor boards, you’re giving new life to old wood. Add molding to cabinets and finalize the transformation with decorative hardware.

Reclaim Old Wood

Furniture, beams, ceilings, cabinets, siding, and floors made of reclaimed wood are beautiful and warm. Through years of drying indoors in another form, this wood acquires a hardness, beauty, and depth of color that is not found in newly harvested wood. Read more about recycled wood flooring.

• Environmentally-Friendly Wall Coverings

Select wall coverings made from environmentally friendly fibers colored with non-toxic dyes and water-based inks. Use vinylfree, fully-breathable coverings that cannot lock in harmful molds and mildew.

Choose Non-Toxic Paints

Dust-Free Surfaces

Room-to-Room Windows

It’s believed that non-toxic paints relieve some major causes for indoor contamination in homes. They’ve been developed by almost all major paint manufacturing companies so that they’re cost-effective, durable, have good covering qualities, produce almost no odor, and are environmentally healthy. These lowor zero-VOC (meaning they don’t emit Volatile Organic Compounds into the air) are easy clean-up and help keep toxic materials out of our landfills. Look for low-VOC or zero-VOC paints at any paint store or home repair center.

Select surfaces that don’t collect dust and can easily be wiped clean. Avoid textured fabrics for draperies and opt for wooden shutters. They look neat and sleek, can be custom-made to fit any window, and are easy to clean when they need freshening.

Take advantage of light in another room by installing interior windows. The light will pass from a well-lighted or window-full space into a darker space and provide lighting at no additional charge. By choosing wisely, you’ll not only have a beautiful home for years to come. You’ll be creating a health environment for your family in a space that is environmentally responsible and just “feels good.”

ARTICLE I Feng Shui Tips

Feng Shui Tips for Renovating and Remodeling Are you thinking of renovating or remodeling your home? If you do, I strongly suggest you look into feng shui for remodeling and renovating and take some time to assure the success of your renovation by applying feng shui principles. Think how this renovation will change the flow of energy in your home and employ feng shui to achieve the best results for you and your family. Feng Shui knowledge is about your connection to your immediate environment and its influence on your health, well-being and overall quality of your life, thus, feng shui for renovating and remodeling should be high on your list of priorities when planning to remodel. If you are renovating because your family is growing, here are some feng shui tips to consider: • Allow for a balanced space for each family member, i.e. if you need two additional bedrooms for your growing family, create bedrooms that are somewhat similar in size, versus a bigger and a smaller one. You want your children to feel equally loved and taken care of, versus fighting who has the bigger bedroom and why. • With all the importance we place on the kitchen as the heart of the house and the area strongly connected to abundance, you do not want to change the flow in a way that you see the kitchen right as you come home, or right from your bedroom, as this is not good feng shui. • Do not overlook the importance of lighting, especially in areas where there is little natural light, do discuss and plan the lighting options in advance with your architect or contractor to be sure your needs are covered. •

Familiarize yourself with the basics of the Ba-Gua, or the energy

map of your space, as well as the interaction of the five elements, to be sure you have a good foundation for the energy flow in your space. For example, let’s say you are adding to the South area of your House and you are selecting materials and colors, etc. Knowing that South is connected to the element of Fire, you will avoid selecting materials with a predominant black or blue color scheme, as these are Water element colors, and Water puts down the Fire, thus these colors will weaken the energy in the South area of your space. Keep exploring feng shui; start with the basics and then move on to more complex levels. The decision to apply feng shui knowledge in your life might be one of the best decisions you ever made for your own happiness and well-being. Color is one of the easiest ways to shift the energy in your space with Feng Shui. Each color is an expression of one of the Five Feng Shui Elements: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood. The elements are used in specific areas according to the feng shui energy map of your space, or Bagua. This Feng Shui color guide will help you choose the best colors to create a harmonious Feng Shui home. Choose the Feng Shui colors according to the energy you need and bring them into your space with the wall color, art, photography, or various decor items.

Kata Beach I PROPERTY HOTSPOT

The pleasant bay of Kata, just a few minutes south of Karon Beach, entices and charms many visitors with its white sands and clear waters.

Very popular with families, Kata is an all round favourite due to its spectacular palm-lined beach, great restaurants, lively but not raucous nightlife and varied accommodation options - all close to the beach. From May to October surfers flock to catch Kata’s waves and from November to April the beach is alive with sunseekers. Kata is split into two focal areas: Kata Centre, which is at the northern end close to Karon and Kata South, home to several resorts. The Club Med takes up most of the beach road, resulting in a shaded footpath that makes for a pleasant stroll.Continuing on through the village, visitors will find an abundance of shops to browse in, from souvenir and ready-to-wear outlets, to 7-Elevens and local mini-marts, to name-brand fashion stores. There are also plenty of dive shops and tour operators to assist those looking to explore beyond the beach. High-end properties are to be found in Kata, offering stunning sea views and strong capital appreciation. Furthermore, Kata beach being one of the tourist favorite spots, good rental returns are guaranteed.
