Since the 1980’s, the sandy beaches on the western coast of the island have been heavily developed into tourist centre’s, with Patong, Karon and Kata being the most popular ones. Since the 2004 Tsunami, all damaged buildings and attractions have been restored. Phuket is currently going through an intensive period of leisure urbanization with many new hotels, apartments and houses under construction. In July 2005, Phuket was voted one of the World’s Top 5 retirement destinations by the acclaimed Fortune Magazine.There are thousands of expats living in Phuket, many of them retirees. A favourite spot for them is Phuket Beach, as it is very convenient. Costs in Phuket, as is the same all over Thailand now ,have shot up over the past decade, making it one of Thailand's more expensive retirement destinations.
