Phuket has had a triple hit over the past 12 months.
Firstly with the original Covid-19 outbreak and lockdowns back in April and May in 2020, then again just before Christmas and New Year when the new clusters emerged in Samut Sakhon and the eastern coastal provinces, further dampening even local traveller traffic to the island, then some further restrictions announced in the second week of January adding even further restrictions on travellers.
The island, which should be in the middle of its busiest time of the year, is now almost completely devoid of any visitors… and any revenue for its battered tourist industry.
