This study develops previous research conducted (see Taylor 2012) into disaster vulnerability on Phi Phi Island, which resulted in the development of a detailed framework of vulnerability factors intertwined with factors of political economy presenting a post-disaster situation that was highly vulnerable and non-conducive to sustainability. The paper proposes future research directions for identifying and mitigating destination vulnerability. Whilst there has been limited research undertaken from a tourism development perspective in the intervening years (Calgaro, 2011; Steckley and Doberstein, 2011), that which exists points again to overtourism (Koh and Fakfare, 2019). There is growing evidence to suggest that tourist satisfaction has been diminishing for a long time now (Ee and Kahl, 2014). and that vulnerability has been recreated creating the conditions for a future disaster as predicted by Blaikie et al (2003).
