2 million Indians per year is 5480 per day, how do people who spout this garbage keep their jobs.  Also, Phuketscrew hit the mark when he said if they don’t know how many hotels or hotel rooms in Phuket how can they forecast with any degree of accuracy.  Personally I am quite happy with a decrease in the number of tourists, Phuket is becoming spoilt by mass tourism.

OMG! Why can they not just come out and say it, the high Baht and very bad reputation has and is causing this crisis not only for the big hotels but everyone who is connected in anyway to tourist income. The downward spiral should not be measured year on year mut maybe should be measured from the day democracy was stolen at the end of a gun. I am sure that would paint a far worse picture. The damage really took grip with the closer of establishments for several months, the disinfectant of places character. These all a play part and the high Baht which stops foreign tourists coming but also increases the high end Thais to holiday in foreign countries. 

First it was the saviour by Chinese now it’s the Saviour of Indians ... Tell you that it won’t be Europeans coz they ain’t that stupid

I looked at the hotel numbers and rooms they posted. They basically have no clue at all and are proud to let everyone know it. 90 % of what ?  legal hotels, illegal  hotels.

I use to enjoy Phuket for a few days but it seems has become the biggest rip off, bad attitude place in the country.

Too bad fun to cruise on a m/b but I certainly will not be going back.

Yes.

It has got to be hurting Pattaya.

The hotel industry seems very unorganized and powerless but find lots of time to complain.
