The tourism industry in Thailand, which was damaged by the devastating tsunami in 2004, is returning to normal, offering holidaymakers looking for luxury holidays chance to grab a great deal.

This is according to travel author Sharon Wrobel, writing for the Jerusalem Post, who said that visitors choosing low-season periods for their summer break may be better placed to avoid the crowds and see the best the country has to offer.

“While fewer tourists may be flying to Thailand in the high season (November to April), visitors to the country during the low season (May to October) can still find fantastic high-end treats, as hotel prices are halved,” she commented.

Ms Wrobel added that hospitality in Phuket is second to none, helping to rebuild tourists’ confidence in the “valiant” country.

One of the most popular tourist areas on Phuket is Patong Beach on the central western coast, perhaps owing to the easy access to its wide and long beach.

Most of Phuket’s nightlife and its cheap shopping is located in Patong, and the area has become increasingly developed. Patong means “the forest filled with banana leaves” in Thai.
