It looks like the hotel and restaurant business is not as good as many hoped in Phuket. In the aftermath of the Tsunami many farang have tried and even got away with robbing banks in and around Phuket. Just yesterday a farang robbed a bank in Karon, Phuket, Thailand and got away with 420 000 THB in cash. The police believes that the rise of the number of foreigners robbing banks in Thailand is because the business is very slow and they lost a lot of money in the Tsunami. The Phuket Police have searched all the motorbike rental and guesthouse without finding the robber making them believe he was a local.
