But apart from the usual talk there was very little new to add to the argument.

 

Unfortunately, this seems to be standard procedure with most things either TAT or government related.

However, there were next to no foreigners. 

IMO they realised that Phuket is not worth the trouble, and are going elsewhere. Last time I visited was after the tsunami and they were rebuilding the same <deleted><deleted> it was before the wave. Same on Phi Phi, which judging by the photos is now worse than before, if that was even possible.

Mass tourism from Europe is gone and will for a long time. Economy isn't good and offers from neighbouring countries (in Europe as Greece, Tunisia, Spain, Portugal...) are way more attractive. Thailand should focus on Asians.

If they want domestic tourists prices will need to change, its 10-20% more than elsewhere, most Thais consider it expensive.

I took my wife there 3-4 years ago ,from her home in Chonburi, she still talks about it to this day how everything cost more, even 7/11 and big C.
