As Asia's middle class or consumer class continues to view travel as an object of desire, the regions cruise industry is ramping up.

Recently the Philippines released a manual "Cruising Philippines, Asia's Carribean" which highlights the country's ports, tourism attractions and other facilities.

Phuket remains well positioned to service the industry, though the port in Ao Mahkam needs a serious upgrade as does the infrastructure.
