Thailand extends ban on inbound flights until July 1st

Saturday’s announcement by the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand means no inbound passenger flights to the kingdom until July 1st. The move will be another blow to stranded foreigners outside Thailand. It is also a signal to the country’s already devastated tourism industry and a huge number of informal workers who depend on it to survive, that there will be no quick return to normality.

Phuket: La perla delle Andamane

Phuket, la più grande isola della Thailandia e la principale destinazione balneare, si trova a circa 860 chilometri a sud di Bangkok. E’ nota come “la Perla delle Andamane” e non è difficile capirne il perché. Collegata alla terraferma da una strada rialzata (Ponte Sarasin), si offre al visitatore con le sue distese di sabbia bianca, bagnate da trasparenti acque turchesi. A fare da sfondo a questo paesaggio acquatico, il verde delle colline, la jungla e boschetti di palme da cocco. Sulla via delle principali rotte tra l’India e la Cina, l’isola si è sviluppata in origine grazie allo sfruttamento dello stagno e della gomma. L’intenso traffico commerciale dell’epoca conferiva al luogo un sapore cosmopolita. Tra il XVIII ed il XX secolo, i ricchi depositi di stagno di Phuket hanno agito come calamita per i commerci. Arrivarono per primi i cinesi con le loro tradizioni, seguiti dalle compagnie minerarie europee di Portogallo, Olanda e Francia che Re Rama V il Grande invitò per aiutare lo sviluppo dell’industria.Questi visitatori fecero profitto e trasformarono Phuket in una piccola casa lontano da casa, influenzando anche lo stile architettonico delle costruzioni.

Responsible Tourism

In recent years, the tourism sector has experienced a period of enormous growth, becoming one of the most important economic sectors for many countries. This development has produced a strong environmental, social, cultural and economic impact that has been accompanied by a form of exploitation, particularly in Third World countries: exploitation of resources, the environment and local populations. Some exotic paradises appreciated for their pristine beauty have become impoverished, filled with waste and “cement giants” due to the intense construction activity, the neglect and carelessness of tourists. Often travelers stay in these large luxury structures, far from the local reality and therefore do not make the tourist perceive a true “cultural difference”; this means that contact with the locals is really limited and superficial.
