Editor’s Letter: Introducing Luxe Living Asia

Posted in Uncategorized

There’s no denying that these are uncertain times, both in Hong Kong and around the world. And yet, in times of trouble, isn’t the notion of home — a safe, comfortable space for you and your loved ones — more important than ever? With that in mind, we proudly present Luxe Living Asia, your indispensable new guide to the dynamic world of high-end property across the region. 

Naturally, there’s plenty of eye candy for you to enjoy on our newly launched site, as we peek into splashy penthouses in Bangkok and Singapore, ogle picture-perfect holiday homes in Bali and Koh Samui, take inspiration from Hong Kong’s top interior designers, and step inside some rather unique homes in Asia.

But owning property isn’t just about fantasy—it’s also about investment. Aside from their primary residences, enterprising Hongkongers may own condos in Bangkok or beach villas in Phuket. To that end, we’ve culled notable facts and figures from across the region, reviewed the state of the property market in Bangkok (the luxury sector is going strong!), and put together a primer to what you need to know before considering any purchase in Thailand.

I hope you’ll join us regularly for ongoing coverage of news and trends, interior design, hot properties, expert interviews and more. Whether you want to daydream about living in a posh new pad, find the right designer to give your home a new look, or learn more about property investment in Asia (and beyond), you’ll find everything you need on our new site. To ensure you stay up to date, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for daily inspiration and the latest luxury property news. Happy house hunting!
