What happens when expats clash with tourists?

Well, after all the sunshine and rainbows I knew it wouldn’t be long before something not so pleasant happened in our idyllic little expat oasis. Even regular trips to immigration in Phuket Town and two days at the department of transportation weren’t as unpleasant as the obnoxious tourists who have moved in next door. I won’t say where they’re from because I don’t want to perpetuate the notion that all people from one particular place are exactly the same, but these guys are certainly leaving a bad taste in our mouths for one nationality in particular.

There’s something to be said for zoning laws. Some communities are meant for commercial endeavours and some are meant for residential purposes. Without some type of boundary, invisible or otherwise, there are bound to be some disagreements.

Even with them, there can still be problems… it’s human nature. Inevitably in life, you’re going to run into people who have no personal boundaries...
