Roosters await tourists on deserted Patong piers

The piers are still inhabited by roosters tied there by local people to greet foreign tourists.

 

Phuket province is reeling under the impact of numerous tourist trips being cancelled due to the Covid-19 situation in Thailand and several countries worldwide.

Nowhere is the fall in tourist numbers as apparent as on the pontoon piers built temporarily on Patong Beach, one of the most popular attractions in the province.

Previously, the pontoon piers were a place where tourists were screened for the Covid-19 infection. They came in huge numbers after exiting big cruises.

The piers are still inhabited by roosters tied there by local people to greet foreign tourists, who are staying away for now.

The pontoon piers will be dismantled in the next three months after the high season of the Andaman Sea cruise ends.

I'm sure the roosters have better things to do with their time. Tourists or no tourists!

Doctor : Congratulations on avoiding getting Corona virus on your Thai holiday. Commiserations on getting bird flu.

At least the sea eagles and slow lorises have been phased out.

I do feel sorry for the roosters that are tied up like that in 95 degree heat and sunshine. 😬
