I am currently planning a trip to Thailand and will probably visit Phuket. However, I am having difficulty finding anything online stating how they have recovered from the Tsunami. Is it pretty much back to normal? I figure since it is a high tourist area it would be well on it's way.
I would also appreciate any dive operator recommendations in Phuket as well.

Hey, I was home last summer and we went to Phuket for a weekend and stayed in Patong Beach. Everything was returning to normal, most of the businesses were open and mostof the hotels were up and running. There were a few hotels on the northern end of the beach that were still rebuilding, but that was a year ago so I'm sure everything is definitely back to where it was before the tsunami.
