Phuket Governor Wichai Praisa-ngob said at the press conference that tourist’s drowning recently bothers him very much. He worries the incidents that happened with 10 tourists including the latest Russian tourist who his body has just found today’s (September 2) morning may destroy Phuket’s good image. Therefore, a meeting among concerning offices and local administrative organisations have to be held in order to find the way to solve problem.
During the monsoon season, Phuket will provide warning sign and red flag to indicate that the sea condition is not safe to swim. But most of tourists ignore the warning and go into the sea to swim. While they don’t noticed that our seas are different from theirs.
The meeting will be held next week.
