Phuket is very calm and paceful as normal, we do not notice anything here at all. There is some calm demonstration in Phuket town, still nothing that affect us at all.

Come here and you will enjoy your holiday!

Welcome!

Yes, is safe to go, very busy now with thousands of people enjoying their holidays.

If you're very worried about what may or not happen in the future, just stay at home

For a tourist, I would consider those pocket of protests to be more of a little inconvenience than a safety issue.

Have fun in Phuket!

Protests in KL, is it safe to go to JB?

That should put some perspective into your question.

Just got back from a month in Phuket on Saturday night. It is so far removed from what is going on in BKK that you need to seek out news on BBC or Thai tv to have any ideas about it. Phuket is welcoming tourists with open arms and there is nothing to worry about. Have a great trip
