Hi, Just wanted to tell you that we were planning to come to Thailand some time this year before the wave hit, we were a bit hesitant but thanks to this website and others, myself and my daughter are leaving NZ on 18th April to come to your beautiful country for the first time, I hope the latest earthquake wasn't to bad for you, looking forward to arriving in Phuket next month.

We just spent 4 fantastic days in Phuket! (April 1-4) It is truly amazing what the collective spirit of the local folk has done already to bring Patong back to it's former (now even better!) state.
Please, please, people...don't stay away from Phuket. The locals there need you now more than ever! And, if you hit glorious Surin, be sure to get Marie for your personal "chair gal" for the day...she was just the nicest, most genuine of all the locals we met..and she gives a bitchin' massage to boot!

Just a message of hope and love to all the people of beautiful PHUKET. I admire your courage and fight you all have to do to rebuild your lives once again after this horrible disaster. We were there on our honymoon back in Oct. '99 stayed at the THAVORN and NOVATEL and will never forget the most welcoming faces of all the locals. We would really appreciate some info on the SALONIKA GREEK RESTAURANT did the owner and his family make it because we can't locate them on the listings and maybe an email address, also the people we hired our motorbikes from cant remember their names closer to macdonalds on the beach front I think they were the longest motorbike hirers there, are they ok. I will appreciate anything. Thanks for the fabulous work you are doing keep it up.

I have followed the progress with the restoration of Phuket with interest, and am amazed what has been achieved so far. The photography on this web site certainly has done a great service to Phuket, and has convinced me to come back for my sixth visit, between April 25 and May 6. I hope that the Tsunami alert earlier today does not scare people away! Good luck to all in wonderful Phuket!

Your endless website is everyday better and better.
I just come back from Patong last March 28 after I spent four days of vacation at Thara Patong hotel and obviously I found there everything like in your photos.
Everything was nice and perfect and I still cannot belive how the Thai people were able to clean everything in only 3 months!!
Of course if you really want to find somewhere there are still the evidence of tsunami but this is something that doesn't affect your vacation and good time.
The beach and the sand are beautifull, the water is very clean.
Now I have to wait for my next business trip in Asia and hopefuly I will join again a long weekend in Phuket.

We have just returned from Patong and had the best time. I think that everyone who can should be booking their next holiday in phuket. We were there for the 2nd earthquake scare and nothing happened, so please help the people. It is true that they are telling us that no money is being given to a lot of the businesses so they need our help.If someone could explain why the aid is not getting through, then perhaps I could feel better about giving to charities again.!!

I've been very regularly visiting your site since just days after the disaster. I tried sending a message on your feedback page in January but it wasn't working. What I wanted to say then still applies: your work, scouting around, photographing and posting on your site has been totally, totally superb. Not only have you been a most wonderful example of the caring professional communicator (or maybe there are several of your behind the site and all this needs to be in the plural), deserving of the highest awards, but you have also recorded and very effciently portrayed the incredible, and very effectove efforts of the people to deal with and overcome the worst that nature could throw at them. The people of Phuket, through your work, can be seen to be the most wonderful example of humankind, very, very much deserving of support, but most of all people with whom it would be a huge priviledge to be able to spend time. As a place to holiday, or a place to invest, your work, and their work, and attitudes, have shown Phuket, and probably all of Thailand, to be totally outstanding.

I've been looking at your photos on a weekly basis since the Tsunami and they are the main reason why I will holiday in Phuket this year.
We have been sending our holiday in Phuket for a many years and we wanted to help after Tsunami. But every web site we visited, the only help as ask is for people to return and holiday.
This year we will spend our holiday in Phuket and we will bring several friends who have never been there and they are looking forward to it.
We have always stayed at the Baan Laimai Beach Resort, and I appreciated seeing some pictures. Thanks for keeping the rest of the world informed through your camera lens.
See you soon Phuket. TN

11 of us stayed at the Phuket Ocean Resort on Karon Beach. We were part of a wedding group. We drove mopeds, one of our members crashed had minor injuries and was well attended to. We went on a snorkeling trip to the Phi Phi islands, Bam was our guide. We all had a great time.
I saw very little damage from the tsunami. The beaches were squeaky clean when you walked on them. Too much sun was our biggest problem. Well, we're from Seattle you know.

I have just returned from Phuket and can assure people they will have a great time there. We were there during the earthquake which fortunately didn't cause a further tsunami but the whole town of patong was cleared very rapidly now that people were alerted and knew what to look for. The people were great and I recommend anyone thinking of going to go. This is the best way to help those who need the tourist for their existance
