If you think Phuket is fascinating, you might want to think twice. Phuket is beautiful, but in fact its a lonely island. Since after the Tsunami, almost all shops hired Indians or Pakistanis now. So even though you are in Phuket, you feel like you ended up in India/Pakistan; that's sad isn't it? A city filled with foreigners, what is left are the ladies that does the massage for you. You may enjoy your trip in Phuket especially the amazing island tour but on the other side, there lies sadness, fear and darkness.
