Concepts of accessibility, availability and stability will be presented before proceeding to analysing Phuket's attractions. A classification into a destination lifecycle and government policies are introduced before summarising the destination. The next chapter describes the Boxing Day Tsunami and its effects on Phuket before continuing to evaluate which measures the destination has taken to counter-steer prevailing problems. Finally, Phuket's behaviour will be compared to other destinations that have suffered similar external shocks before concluding with an outlook for tourism in Phuket.
