"Expensive" Phuket dead as a dodo this high season


Recommended Posts

I know Phuket is a bit more expensive than elsewhere. But I have lived here more than 5 years and the only thing that has gone up is the food at Wineconnection. Everything else are the same prices.

The Baht is too expensive now, thats the problem ...

It was the tsunami that put Phuket on the map.

Pre-tsunami, many people would ask me how to pronounce the island's name.

Post tsunami, everyone knew how to pronounce it.............

Every time I went to Phuket, I left with the impression that getting money sadly dominated every aspect of their being for the people living there. There were no smiles or laughter -- just the very serious business of getting as much money as you can for what you've got.


I guess that brought them a happiness that we just can't see, but if the money's dried up, the place must have one of the most miserable populations on the planet. My 5 or 6 trips over the years has been plenty. It gets a little worse and the people a little greedier every time I've gone, so I can't imagine anything that would compel me to visit the place ever again.
