PHUKET: The first direct commercial passenger flight from Russia since the tourism shutdown last year arrived in Phuket yesterday morning (Nov 6), bringing 277 tourists from Moscow.

Look-out girls Ivor Tortitshoff is in town.

How can Russia be on the list of safe countries?

Last 14 days, 549 947 new cases and 16 107 dead from Covid.

 

All money welcome into the Kingdom.

Regardless who brings it in.

Country with half a million secret Covid deaths

It already has one of the world’s highest figures for Covid deaths but a new analysis has said more than three times that number have actually died.

Phuket would expect to receive 300,000 visitors throughout December, giving an average of 10,000 visitors a day, Mr Bhummikitti said.

“The occupancy rate this month could gradually improve to 25-30% from 18-20% in October, before increasing to 35% in December,” he said.

 

How many hotel rooms are there in Phuket? 300,000 travellers in a month, say averaging 10 days so that's 100,000 at any one time, also usually 2 to a room so I make that around 50,000 rooms at peak. That's nowhere near 30%, even if they do somehow hit 10,000 a day.

I look nothing like a Russian but years ago when every other tourist was from Russia I learned how to say "No!  Foxtrot Oscar!" in the mother tongue.  Niet! Otvali!

 

Very useful when numerous young Russian blokes approached me while having a quiet smoke outside Central Festival putting two fingers towards their mouth and gutturally uttering (read shouting) "zigaretta".

 

I'm sure my pronunciation is tragic but it got the job done.
