it seems like (from this report, anyway)  that a big part of the 
disaster relief could come from people booking holidays in Thailand 
right away: http://www.image-asia.com/post_tsunami_phuket_krabi.htm

"The majority of hotels, beaches and tourist facilities in Phuket, 
Krabi and Koh Lanta are operating normally."

I don't know if this is just a desperate marketing ploy or actual fact, 
but read the article and look at the pictures!
