Several big estates belong to the Russians. The area further north from Phuket, particularly Khao Lak, has a little German community and several Scandinavian families live there most of the year. Very few farang people live in Phang Nga Town and the area around. It’s advisable to speak Thai to survive there. Western foods can be a problem in the inland areas. We cook. There is almost no apartments or condos, farang ppl live in houses in Phang Nga.
