WANTED READER'S OPINIONS Bali and Phuket Face Off

Category: Tourism, Posted:09 Oct 2009 | 13:50 pm

As in life all things move in cycles and while roll back the clock twenty years ago and the brand name Bali was absolutely magic. Then came this decade and Phuket moved into the predominate position as Asia's favorite destination. Over the past year or so Bali's tourism market flourished, while Thailand and our island took a beating back of a series of unfortunate political episodes. Much is now written in blogs, newspapers and in talks with locals about where is the better place to live – Phuket or Bali.

So our question to our readers is – be it tourism or finding your place in the sun to live or work; which is better Phuket or Bali? Post your comments an let us know your opinion.
