PHUKET, Aug 13 (TNA) – Phuket has been free of the coronavirus disease 2019 but still needs frequent tourism promotional campaigns because its tourism has not picked up, according to the mayor of Patong district.

 

Chalermlak Kebsap, the mayor, said that although Phuket had been free of COVID-19 cases and eased business lockdowns were attracting Thai visitors, the economy and tourism of the southern island had not recovered.

 

According to her, 80-90% of the economy of Patong depended on foreign tourists and consequently only 20-30% of local hotels, restaurants, entertainment places and souvenir shops have opened.

Who even want go there if nothing is open?!

Living on Phuket I have spent 3 of the last 5 weeks at a wonderful resort in the Rawai area. Although quieter than usual most local bars and restaurants have survived and are open (indeed some never closed) as they have the support of the large expat community. Now is the best time to go as it's quiet, tourists are thin on the ground and prices are cheap.

Wasn't it the officials purpose? They litteraly obliterated the tourist industry under the silly excuse such as COVID 19, which seems not to be that deadly.

Indeed. The number of people killed on Thai roads each week far surpasses the 58+- who have died related to Corvid-19. It is Amazing Thailand in so many ways.
