“There are more than 80,000 rooms in hotels and resorts in Patong but still not enough for tourists in the high season.”

“Even though the number of Chinese tourists has dropped we are continuing to publicise to attract more tourists from Middle East countries, India, Russia, South Africa and Australia to come to Phuket.”

Khun Kritsada says, “Numbers of tourists during the past 2-3 months have decreased, especially Chinese tourists. However from this month more European tourists are arriving and more than 80 percent of the town’s rooms have been booked.”

“Direct flights from Indian to Phuket are at least three flights per week. We expect that more tourists are coming to Phuket during the high season, same as every year.”

“At the end of last month almost every beach and restaurant will be full of tourists. Many roads in Patong at night time are also full of tourists already.”
