Seems that there are a whole lot of middle-aged, un-accompanied, white men in their 50s and 60s there. Eww.

This is not quite true. Most visitors come there with families and very often with children.

You have to look what countries they come from and how ugly/pretty woman are there. After that I may even understand why they do that. It is true that women in some countries/regions are simply prettier and slimmer than in others lol

I love Thailand all my heart and soul!!

Very exciting cities, fantastic islands, Thai cuisine the best cuisine in the world , first-world infrastructure !!

Miss Phuket alot! Went to several beaches Karon, Patong,Kata', Kata' Noi and the water was so pristine and gorgeous ! ( putting Penang & Langkawi to shame )

Not my cup of tea. The place looks filthy and boring. Thailand has a lot more to offer than this kathoey and backpackers infested hellhole.

Oh no, it's not filthy, thats for sure. In fact, just a boat ride away there are some of the most beautiful destinations such as Koh Phi Phi. Phuket is a rather unique and very interesting place to spend holidays. Boring? Maybe... depends on what you like. I myself prefer big cities and busy streets which is why I really felt a little bored... I only spent there 3 days which was plenty. However, if you're traveling with a company it can be one hell of a paradise with big cars, beaches, nightclubs, drinks or, if you want, a quiet hotel resort with a nice view from a hill terrace. So by no means it's a hellhole. Then again, depends on what you like.

If there's no prostitution and night drinking then there must be something clearly wrong with such a city

Been there twice ..some time ago ( before Tsunami)
yeah! you can go with your family and kids..lost of thing to do on daytime..
during the night it changes 360º..especially after 12-1am....better just go back to your hotel ( if you have kids)...
Still..i agree there are too many mid-aged men ( europeans mainly) looknig for pre-teen sex...seen it first hand...yuk

there are plenty of better places around the island to visit..my opinion.
