A meeting held yesterday (May 23) at the Pearl Hotel in Phuket Town, hosted by Phuket Governor Norraphat Plodthong.

 

The meeting was to discuss the growth of Chinese tourism on the island and ways to ensure better safety whilst they’re visiting.

 

Joining the Governor were the Consul-General of the People’s Republic of China in Songkhla Mr Zhou Haicheng, the Director of the office of the Ministry of Cultural and tourism of China Ms Zhang Xinhong, Deputy Consul-General plus the head of the Phuket Consular Office of the Consulate General of the People’s Republic of China Ms Ma Cuihong.

 

About 3 million Chinese tourists will visit Phuket, Phang Nga and Krabi generating more than a hundred billion baht income for the region. Since the beginning of this year to April, there have been 850,000 Chinese tourists, a 33% increase on last year.

Thailand doesn't yet understand the principle of safety......maybe the Chinese don't either.

Anyway, not the type of retirement place I would like....850,000 Chinese in 3 months!

They could suggest that they stop walking four abreast in the road, even try using the footpaths!!! And look before crossing!!

 

As for their driving skills...…….absolutely appalling.

There's no rule that expats have to live in Patong. Many of us live and play in areas of Phuket province where we never see Chinese tourists.
