As in life all things move in cycles and while roll back the clock twenty years ago and the brand name Bali was absolutely magic. Then came this decade and Phuket moved into the predominate position as Asia's favorite destination. Over the past year or so Bali's tourism market flourished, while Thailand and our island took a beating back of a series of unfortunate political episodes. Much is now written in blogs, newspapers and in talks with locals about where is the better place to live - Phuket or Bali. Many point to the issues of over development, political risk, rising crime rates, corruption and an infrastructure overloaded back of the boom years.
