    HI Merliondude

    The current problem in Bangkok has not affected Phuket that much.
    Was there 6- 12 May with the wife.
    No protests from Reds, Phuket is Yellow territory.
    Its biz as usual, I did notice slightly less farang tourists, Aussie
    many Koreans and PRCs
    This is the low season for Europeans in Phuket
    If you take any Tuk Tuk, make sure you agree on the price first
    and also avoid the Jet ski mafia.
