They're "international travellers", not tourists... My Thai friends and working expats I know say that everybody they talk to is coming in through Phuket. I've started being contacted by AQ hotels in Bangkok asking if I'm still planning to travel to BKK. I think the sandbox is putting a hurt on the AQ program elsewhere.
When you look at the numbers it seems a few more people are arriving and that most of those are coming through Phuket. It will be interesting to see what the numbers for the whole country are in coming months.
It was a hell of a run that will most likely never be repeated. Everyone else from the 500 days is loooong gone. Big loss for Dorna and the sport but its time, bummer about all the cancelled GP's this year but I got to see Rossi race a bunch of times. Getting old sucks.
