The tourists who will visit Phuket in early 2011, if not book a car rental in advance, might be disappointed. Because there are very high demand of rental cars January, and some  car types were fully book already.

In fact, not only for car rental, but also accommodations have been almost fully reserved as well. I think  may be  because we have less tourists during November to December last year (much less than usual). Tourists may go to Phuket during beginning of this year instead. I talked to some friends in hotel business, they also said that room occupancies of November and December are very low compare with previous years.

I ‘m not sure if it’s because of rumors about a tsunami would happen in Phuket that affected to number of tourists before New Year. But after the New Year, lots of tourists and travelers were back to Phuket.

For your convenience, if you plan to visit Phuket in January and February, don’t forget to reserve accommodation and car rent in advance. This will help you escape the trouble when you arrive to Phuket.
