Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Join me as we take a look around at some of the tourist spots on the very well known island of Phuket, with recent reports in the media stating that Phuket is no longer as popular as it used to be and is now seeing a down turn with a lot of business suffering but is this true or is Phuket just seeing a different type of tourist visiting its shores with different requirements ?
we will be taking a look at Chalong and Rawai where a lot of the boat trips run from before moving on to Nai Harn, Kata, Karon and of course Patong.

Hi Everyone, I have noted that I may have slightly 😮over used the word “GUYS” in this video my apologies I shall try and correct this in the future. I guess that what happens when you don’t recheck the video several times before upload 😂

Sam Wilko says:

Lived there (Phuket) for 20 years. Phuket is not Thailand in the same way that Amsterdam is not Holland. It took me an hour to drive the 17 km into work! Madness.

I’ve friends in Phuket with tourist businesses and they all claim what you noted saying tourism is down down down. With Thai government making visas and long term staying more difficult for farangs, the options to go to easier oversea Asian places to stay is a no brainier. Well done Thai government…you screwed local Thai people and businesses!

The price double for visitors in Thailand for every thing you pay 100% taxi, hotels, woman, drinking, food, message ect must be carful

Great video! You have me a little nervous. Going for the 1st time in 3 wks! Hope it's not as dirty and scandalous as the comments suggest. I will be so devastated. I do also have 3 nights planned in Ko phi phi don and 1 night in Krabi. I hope we have a good time.

Try visit the Philippines first then campare to other asian countries. Philippines has more than 7,000 islands. How many islands thailand has? Watch the videos of foreign Youtubers and decide for yourself

Jo Laurantus says:

Agree with many other commentors, Phuket has become more expensive particularly noticable in the last couple of years. I noticed alot of Russian tourists when there. Also Patong beach is filthy. Otherwise Phuket is still a great place for a holiday.

JJ S says:

The exchange rate deal has not effected the US dollar to Thai Baht exchange rate. The rate is virtually the same as ten years ago. Its been very steady. It was 32 baht to the dollar in 2010 and its the same now.

Lennart Olsson says:
