Much has been made of the speed with which the southern island of Phuket has managed to pick itself up after the December tsunami, but in one vital sector of the local tourism industry, operators are still struggling desperately to find customers.



According to Mr. Chamrern Lakthan, one of the province`s spa operators, nearly all the local spa industry`s customers have disappeared following the tsunami, and operators now acknowledge the fact that they cannot expect their businesses to be profitable in the near future.



Instead, he says, they are focusing on providing employment for people affected by the tsunami, particularly local people made unemployed by the disaster.
