Thailand's laisser faire policies towards tourism are slowly destroying the nations natural resources.

It seems that tourism this year is down up to 30%    .....  whether or not this is a glitch, you can be sure that the authorities reaction will be a nape-of-the-neck one that fails to look to the longer future or the sustainability of the industry.

However, I really don't think that posts saying "Phuket is better than Samui" have any validity whatsoever, just a poorly written subjective post about one person's prejudices.......waste of a keyboard.

His views are less valid than yours then....makes sense?😂

The extortion at Samui starts in Bangkok when boarding the stupidly expensive Bangkok airways monopoly. Better just get the BUS from the airport and go to pattaya and put that money to good use 😉

I've grown to despise the place (and travelling to it) the more i've visited it. Won't ever be going there again

We drove down to Samui last year and stayed 4 days. I don't even think about ever going back.

 

I've been to Phuket 3 times in the last 9 months and I can't wait to go back.

Hmmmm, I am living in Chiang Mai and want to leave northern Thailand for 3 months during the burning season next year. My idea was to go to Koh Samui for this time. Following this thread to find out if it´s really so bad there. 

At Phuket I have been 3 times and was not so impressed.

So true bro. Patong isnt great but still nowhere near as bad as chaweng. No means no in patong, in chaweng it just means try again and wear me down until i say yes! 

Same occurs in Bali, persistent to the point where real agro can occur, big difference to offering your wares.Patong has bars , tuk tuk,tailors,massage etc all on offer but a simple I,m ok thanks does the trick!
