Tourists continue to take cruises after two boats capsized off Phuket Island and killed 42, with 5 still missing.
Tourists are ready to board a cruise ship at a pier in Phuket on July 9. About nine cruise ships left the port Monday morning. The Thai government issued a high wave warning in the range of 2-3 meters from July 7 to 12, but many tourists still chose to go on cruises. They said they are not worried about the safety and will wear life vests onboard. (Photo: Cui Meng/GT)
