TAT can 'push' what it wants, but drawing domestic tourists back to the island??  Who believes that? Beaches are closed, everything is to expensive on Phuket for domestic tourists in these times of job losses, cut in salaries, and so on. Hard to believe that business operators are interested in TAT massage as long Phuket remains 'overwhelmed' by continues regimental Covid-19 rules.

Installation of 1 toilet and 1 shower at Surin Beach would be a 100% improvement.

right good luck with that nonsense idea ,  beaches still closed & dive businesses unable to get overseas customers back to the island  that they rely on until late July at the earliest., even looking at historical data for customers  within Thailand  90% were foreign nationals living here

Good luck attracting tourists with the beaches closed!

ThorFinger | 04 June 2020 - 17:03:54

Do I really need to comment?
I have my fingers ready to do the counting.
I commend the effort.
How's that? lol

promoting tourism in phuket with closed beaches and closed airport .........

Why would somebody spend money to go to Phuket if you can't go to the beach?

Pascale | 04 June 2020 - 16:26:37

" PhuketGreatTime"  What a joke ! There is no great time to expect with current restrictions still in place. A Sunday tea dance in a retirement home is probably more exciting.

Capricornball | 04 June 2020 - 15:58:50

Yes...Welcome to Phuket!...come on over to Junkceylon and go shopping for stuff, even if you don't have any money from being unemployed for the last 3 months.  And come to Phuket to go watch a movie with 200 friends you don't know, but forget about the popcorn and drinks. But whatever, don't plan on going to the beach.
