Old Phuket Town, lifeless
The Ghost of Phuket-Town...
On this Friday afternoon of 03 July 2020... it has been almost two months since there has been a single case of Covid-19 reported in Phuket. The authorities continue their strict regulations and for a long time to come the streets of Phuket-Town, Patong... will remain deserted.
It's sad, it's gloomy, it's desolate, it's scary... words and adjectives are not lacking.
So today I walked through five streets of old Phuket, streets that are usually well-travelled. See for yourself the atmosphere, the desolation, the shops open without customers, the coffee-shops with very few visitors...
Discover with me the streets...
Yaowarad Rd, Thalang Rd, Soi Romanee, Krabi Rd, Dibuk Rd
In a few months we will find a normal situation, at least we hope so. We finally notice, and it's obvious, that the presence of tourists wandering on the city sidewalks, taking pictures, sucking an ice cream, sipping a coke, sometimes laughing out loud... it gives life... and the neighborhood is completely different.
