Phuket has ground to a halt from the start of Sept and they still aren't getting it

It does have it's own class. And the leaders would likely refer to them as "the uncounted 60%, of the unbathed masses".

Secretly, these resident and long-term uncounted are desired and preferred by the faux authoritarians and xenophobically created ruling elite regarding positive cycling of the economy. On the surface, contradicting and unfriendly policies certainly conflict any hidden flattery - as the long-term/residency requirements become tighter and more convoluted with each advancing year.

Tourist arrivals in July 18000 and August 15000 according to Mots.co.th.


I guess more than half were to Phuket sandbox.


Maybe they will get a little more with sandboxes in BKK and Payyaya in Nov-dec but not 40000 per month with all that redtape.

I wonder how many of those are real tourists, not returnees? But of course, they all need hotelrooms... 

For a couple of weeks.
