"Tourists Shanae, 19, and Corly, 20, both from Australia, said they had paid 600 baht each for tickets to the beach party on both nights"

So 600 thb per person wow they are making a lot of money, I guess now that they have started they will never stop even from all of the complaint's, like the people who are running the beach party would care when they have made 1200000thb just on entry fees.

Jamie - i think you've missed the point of what running a business is about. Making money, paying your overheads and what's left is profit.

Mr Mark - what do you expect? Its the same all over Patong and most of Phuket...they charge prices the same or higher than the UK but provide none of the service. But, hey they get away with it so why not?

It would be nice if business people started considering other ways to generate income other than resorting to the lowest common denominators - drugs, alcohol and sex. Phuket still has some cultural charm and natural beauty. Why can't business people come up with unique ways to create income from that?

Dave, they do. Really. Look for the pretty good hospitals, dentists and beauty clinics, the golf courses, the water parks, the marinas, the shopping centers, the planned convention center (ok, deep corrupt), the muay thai centers, the joga centers, the exquisite food choices, the spas etc etc. And this beach parties can be fun also without drugs and alcohol. If just the speakers are noise optimized...
