Jamie Monk at Jamie’s Phuket has just posted a terrific review of our Travelfish Guide to Phuket. He has lived there for ages and reckons it’s well worth a read, saying:
“So, I am happy to say that for under 5 US dollars you can buy a well researched, up to date, easy to use, recommended-by-Jamie guidebook for Phuket. Well, “book” is the wrong word. Actually you can buy a 37 page pdf file by making payment online and the “guidebook” can then be downloaded. And it’s good. It knows things I don’t know, it has reviews of guesthouses and hotels, it says this about Patong: “a seething mass of tourism, squalor and unrestricted development, a mess of hotels, bars, restaurants, travel agents, massage parlours, tailor shops and touts. Patong is everything that tourism in Thailand should not have become.” Amen.”
