November's Program

AMCHAM TOURISM FORUM: Phuket's Marine Tourism - Challenges of Change

Phuket has been widely known and respected for its varied marine industry and aquatic life. The island boasts a vibrant yachting scene, healthy scuba diving industry, and is blessed with easily accessible snorkeling spots and a varied marine life population in the Andaman Sea. The marine sector is a vital ingredient in the overall 'Brand Phuket'. However, currently, the reputation of our sparkling big blue is under attack from diminishing fish stocks, boat accidents, poor safety maintenance, keeping wild cetaceans in captivity, yachting restrictions, and pressures put on the scuba diving community from the authorities.

Freedom's Just Another Word for Nothing Left to Lose

EVER been to a mass circumcision, checked out the 2000 post-tsunami bodies on Phuket or seen Rohingya boatpeople rioting to avoid death inside Immigration cells? These are among the hidden aspects of everyday life on the Andaman coast, exposed uniquely by the reporting team at Phuketwan.

Phuket's only international award-winning reporters, Alan Morison and Chutima Sidasathian, see many bubbling below-the-surface issues in Thailand that inevitably affect Phuket and all its residents, for better or for worse.

Now Phuketwan is not just breaking news but making news - all around the world. Morison and Khun Chutima are being sued by the Royal Thai Navy for criminal defamation, with the Computer Crimes Act being used by the military against the media in Thailand for the very first time.

Come and hear some unique Phuket and Thailand perspectives from two these dedicated jounralists.
