"The outbacks in Australia and the middle east countries have their water infrastructure in good order.." Haha,what a nonsense ! You should google :"Water crisis Australian outback" or " Water crisis middle east", if  you want to learn something.

Jor12, The 'outbacks' in Australia, and the Middle East countries have their water infrastructures in good order ( not talking about the warzones),  Thailand has not.  Your swimming solution is a funny joke. But wait until Phuket is without water. That will be no joke. It will smash Phuket tourism very hard.

It is highly doubtful of any disaster occurring from a lack of water.  Outback Australia, the middle east (to name a few) are great examples to the contrary.  If you are that concerned, buy 6 months worth of drinking water and swim daily instead of showering - a treat not enjoyed by the countries given.

All these 'blessings' will be forgotten the day this year when Phuket is without water. Phuket not needs 'blessings'. Phuket needs water! With blessings but no water life stops on Phuket island.. A disaster is going to unfold this year .
