High Season?

Temperature, wind speed and direction, sky color, clouds, surf size, umbrellas forests and new pads on the sun lounges all say it’s high season.

What’s missing?

People. There is a night and day difference between the photo below and what was here a month ago. The difference is just as large between this year and the scene in a normal high season.

Between the global economy, violent political street protests in Bangkok and this year’s coup, I just realized I’ve lived through as many dry seasons that were less than high as were high. It’s a tough time in the tourist business here unless one caters to weekend visitors from Bangkok.
