Safety and Warnings

Phuket is still dealing with the after effects of the tsunami and diseases like Dengue Fever can be found around the city.

It is advisable to take extra precaution by carrying mosquito repellent.

Another very important precaution to be taken is when using credit cards. There is clear evidence of misuse and frauds and the tourist will only know of this when his credit card company informs him of the fact.

While shopping, it is advisable not to carry a lot of cash as poverty levels around Phuket are high and thus incidents of theft and robbery have been reported.

Driving around Phuket is very dangerous as drivers have little road sense and when coupled with irresponsible drinking it leads to frequent driving accidents.

It is advisable to hire a car with a driver or take a taxi or Tuk-Tuks.

The major worry while travelling around Phuket is paying commission. Taxi and Tuk-Tuk drivers get commission for every customer they bring, so never agree to visit places they recommend.
