I heard about it and read about it online before I boarded the flight to Phuket. Didn't want to believe it, that vendors have become pushy and are now openly ripping off tourists; but then again, it isn't the local people who are doing it.

It doesn't help that there are people like her around when the locals are trying to revive their only means of livelihood in post-tsunami Phuket.
