â € ~ Pattaya, Samui and Phuket have reached their saturation point. Koh Samui is without good about is thinking, overdeveloped, it has lost much of its charm. The same applies to Phuket and Pattaya personally I have never found anything, even when I was younger was.â € ™
This says David Kevan, partner of the UK-based tour operator Chic Locations. Kevan received this year from the Tourism Authority of ThailandÂ the â € ~ Friends of Thailandâ € ™ award for his years of promotion of Thailand in the UK.
Kevan is not the first best. He introduced the concept of boutique hotel long before anyone had heard of. Many of its competitors admit they copy «ing what he does, what he afterwards sees as a compliment.
mass tourism must Kevan have nothing. Hence the comment about saturation. His advice: â € ~ Preserve areas with pristine beauty, both for international tourists, but more importantly for your own future generatie.â € ™
improvement also requires the safety of tourists. The establishment of a special room for tourist business in court he calls a step in the right direction, but more is needed. The tourist police should be seen to be present and there should be more attention to the safety of ferries and motorcycles.
Thailand still has a positive image in England, says Kevan. The country is considered as a cheap destination, which actually is not correct. The prices have increased, as a result of the depreciation of the sterling price increases than in Thailand.Â But you do get value for money.
Kevan comes since 1970 Thailand.â € ™ I still get a great buzz visiting Bangkok, which i think is one of the most fantastic cities in the world. I also enjoy Chiang Mai, and despite some rapid developments, it still has a wonderful quality and charm.A € ™
