With so much being written in the local and international media regarding the political unrest in Bangkok, it?s probably the right thing to do to inform visitors to Phuket, and other tourist destinations across the region, that life and business is still rolling on as usual.

Regardless of political opinions and reasons, right or wrong, if you stroll down Patong Beach today or Walking Street in Pattaya, you wouldn?t know the difference in any way, shape or form. It?s important to reassure travelers of these truths, while at the same time understanding that the travel warnings that have been issued by so many embassies across the world are more focused on Bangkok than anywhere else.
