    Best high season ever. Less traffic, less drunks, quiet beaches where you can get parking places. Rental prices of everything are at reasonable level since years. The majority of the shaby bars and drunk tanks are closed forever. I love it.

      Hopefully not so much that you’ll change your plans to leave.

      Good for you ! With guests like you Phuket must be utterly boring.
      Chew on it and enjoy because next year and the followings will be alike.
      We have happily changed our plans and love our new venue.
      Thailand ? Never again and your beer’s price will keep dropping. Lucky you !
      Heil !!!!!

      It’s appalling to read Alte Ledertasche’s comment. He displays himself as a self-centered bigot just like the orange deranged windbag in the white house. The world evolves around him. The gospel is always the same fodder spun on the internet by cunning manipulators. Their agenda is to maintain the status quo in which a small percent of the population is secured of richness’s and the majority of the world’s resources to support this lifestyle. Others can work for them with minimal compensations or suffer.

        And what ? Are you from the social welfare fund ?

        Or maybe one of the leftist humanitarian libtards who always trying to change the world to what they call a better denying the reality and pursuing their own interest ?

        We are living in capitalistic system in which try to position me and my family members as much on top of the food chain as possible. As simple as that. Like it or not.

      If starvation is mentioned it has to be backed up with figures and or interviews with people affected. It surely is happening but that is not the purpose or goal of the report. It’s aim is simply to show the current situation in parts of Phuket. Looking forward to to see more video reporting.

      The Thai people and business owners on Phuket can kiss my ass.

      They have been shafting the tourists and expat community here for years. And now they suffer because they jumped all on the gravy train and put all their eggs in one basket.

      Shit happens and I take advantage now same as they did before.

        The irony is that people like yourself are actually the cause of ripping off tourists. If you are a guest in another country with a selfish, condescending and patronizing attitude the hosts will respond to that in their way.

            Thanks for the selfish fashist. I consider this a compliment.

            You can believe that I am well prepared for such situations.

    Strange I see both sides of the argument here……..Yes it’s very sad for the locals whose livelihoods relied on tourism……..and at the same time good for certain people that hated the commericailism aspect of tourism ……
