Default looking good in phuket

Less corruption all the time, tourist coming now are more interested in doing things that most tourists do like sight seeing which is making it hard for the bars to make a living, the island trips from Rawai are busy every day with lots of Asian and Chinese tourists and a few from western countries who can still afford holiday's
Plenty of discounted accommodation at this time of year and the beaches have been cleaned up, weather has been good and it's a good time to visit
No military to be seen here, things are the same as usual but you are a lot less likely to be ripped of by corrupt people and con men.

Good to hear Peter although I crossed Phuket off my visit list a couple of years ago as it was no longer value for money.I know prices have to go up but unfortunately Phuket was just getting too expensive compared to a lot of other places in Thailand

Lots of resorts and other businesses not doing very well in Kata/Karon at present because of the Chinese tour agents,
Probably the same on the rest of the island, worth checking prices on the internet
Lived here for 9 years now and always happy to return after holidaying in other Asian destinations
Big discounts in resorts to guesthouses this time of year
