Let's face it, when you, as a foreign victim get rushed to a Phuket government hospital with limited care facilities instead to a Phuket International Hospital, it can make the difference between life and death.
From a Thalang clinic to Vachira hospital, from there to a International full equipted  international hospital.  Well. just guess, and Just be insured!
