The people of Greater Phuket appreciate water in the right place

Phuket Resorts Give for Aussie Flood Victims

Thursday, January 20, 2011
PHUKET, where the perils of having too much water in the wrong places are well understood because of the 2004 tsunami, is helping the victims of Australia's worst floods in living memory.

About 50 long-stay package holidays of five days or more on and around Phuket are to be auctioned online on February 1, with the money all going to Queensland flood victims.

The Sydney office of the Tourism Association of Thailand has coordinated the auction, with the help of the Phuket TAT and the Phuket Tourism Association.

TAT Phuket regional director Bangornrat Shinaprayoon said contributions from other resorts were welcome up to January 28.

Australians, who were the first tourists to return to Phuket and the Andaman region in 2005 after the tsunami, continue to enjoy Phuket holidays, with 300,00 to 400,000 coming each year.
