Asterix...Just as a guess, because the photo epitomises the features of Phuket for which it is renowned?

They never show, or seem to see the garbage piles all over 'award winning Phuket'. Drive (pretty much anywhere) from Tesco Lotus Cherng Talay towards the beach. It's like a landfill on both sides of the road. If you're driving in that area, please note, you may want to be in a 4x4 as the roads are so bad since the installation of the sewer pipes (to nowhere) there are holes a meter deep. Have you noticed the postcards for sale at souvenir shops show pictures of Phuket from long ago....When many of us fell in love with this place. Not same now. Even this picture of Maya Bay is very old or would have had to be taken ether very early in the morning or late in the day. The rest of the time it's a horrible traffic jam of smoking speed boats and a mass of unsuspecting tourists. False advertising at best.
