Wichai Praisa-ngob, the Governor of Phuket, assured that the tourism situation in Phuket was getting better since the violence and curfews in Bangkok had stopped. More tourists were coming to Phuket again, especially Chinese tourists who were more confident about the situation in Thailand. He revealed that there would be approximately 86 charter flights from China landing in Phuket soon. Each flight had around 300 Chinese people who were heading to Phuket again, as the Bangkok protests had ended.
Meanwhile Somboon Jirayus, the President of Phuket Tourism Association, commented that there should be more tourists, including Korean, Australians and Chinese, coming to Phuket in July, but the arrivals may be slow and sporadic in coming.
