I wonder if this includes gem shops, latex shops and other commission earning stops.

 

Guides and shop owners are also suffering right now.

"hotel packages for B1,990, including a local tour" 

 

I guess (I am afraid) this is meant by including a local tour...

You are right. But on the other hand there must be tourists paying such prices. Otherwise they could not ask for so much.

But they can't get rid of the overpriced mafia taxis/tuktuks to take you into and around Phuket! This is the most expensive thing in Phuket.

If they all decide to charge the same exorbitant price, the hapless tourist has no choice.

Articles suggest that Mr Keesin is influential in such matters.
