"Expensive" Phuket dead as a dodo this high season

The folklore story of the goose who laid golden eggs comes to minds right now...

 The place is dependant on tourists providing thousands of jobs.

 

How come the shops / businesses / tour agencies / tour providers / boat owners and operators didn't start to work together to make some industry self regulations etc., to protect their industry?

 

By the way have any locals seen any obviously noticeable changes in safety regulations, and even more important actual safety behaviors in the way sea travel / dive tours operate?

Phuket is not alone in having very few tourists. Pattaya looks like the depths of low season compared with a few years back. It will be tough for TAT to spin some lies to pretend this is not the case, when the evidence, or lack of it, is clearly visible to all. Thailand has problems with its tourist industry, and it is time for the denial to stop.

Remember the guy who recently said tourism was down by 20% he was replaced by the guy who said it was up by 20%.

You can add Chiang Mai to that list. Yes there are a good smattering of westerners here now but, the bottom has already dropped out of the big hotel boom and the sell off is a fact. Just no buyers. A race to the bottom?

I never understood why people were traveling to Phuket.

 

Its overpriced and not worth your money at all.

 

There many better places in Thailand. (and in other countries as well)
