Once an investment channel that boom in the market in the period 2016-2018, resort real estate is experiencing nearly 2 turbulent years under the influence of the epidemic.  Expectations are high, will this investment channel show signs of prosperity in 2022?

The COVID-19 epidemic will be basically controlled and tourism will be a priority industry to recover with many supportive policies and attractive stimulus programs.  Along with that, the resort real estate also heats up.
