. . . "improvement" from 2005 . . .

 

EDIT: That and the destruction of cozy beer bars by evil, eeeeeevil shopping malls that should've stayed in the BKK swamp they belong in.

 

Central moved some cozy beer bars across the street to 2nd Rd and then a lot more were built down to Tim. The Soi Buakhao area expanded and the whole LK Metro thing got started in 2005.

 

So I don't see that you have a point.

Such attitude from Pattaya operators should reach the ears of the Chinese and Indian embassies. Thus they could advise their nationals, that they are not welcome any more in Thailand...then one would see who will start crying and complaining from loss of revenue.

 

Many Chinese, Indians (and others)  misbehave, no doubt. But only a fool will put them all in the same basket.

 

In today's China, India, amongst other nations, the emerging middle classes have money to spend, not to mention the large amount of millionaires or billionnaires in these countries. They have a choice where to visit, where to spend.  If Thai society continues to discirminate the decent Chinese or Indians, they do not deserve to get their cash.

You hit it right..and lets remember that this is exactly the quality tourists they chose to go after...you get what you wish for...good luck

Here in Chiang Mai, it's common to see foreign motorbike riders stopped and asked for their licences.  Is that the way to treat tourists??

In eight years in Indonesia, I was stopped once, and the policeman apologised when I took my helmet off and saw that I was not a local.

What gets to me is the filth of the place.  Every side street is littered with bottles, bags, debris from the disintegrating footpaths, rats peeking out from under the piles.

Not a pleasant sight for tourists from much cleaner neighbouring countries.

Pattaya is what it is.  It ain't gonna change any time soon for one reason. Evolution.  It has become what it is through a series of short term decisions with only today's money in mind and seizing whatever 'opportunity' presents itself with no thought to what the consequences might be.  From the Vietnam war period to today's zero-dollar tourists are the result of allowing businesses to benefit following quick one-off cash windfalls lining Thai pockets like building hotels that simply then funnel money to China, India or wherever.

People come to Pattaya to party. Drinking until 2am is not particularly unusual behaviour. In Spain people often do not go out till 11pm ans stay up till dawn. Same for a lot of the Mediterranean countries. But whatever our race or background a party town does not have to be an impolite town.  Bad manners and poor behaviour are not a race factor but a cultural  and educational issue. As for rip offs. Only fools get ripped off and they should consider it part of their education. I get the impression some real softies come to Thailand with little life or travel experiences. Or maybe they have never read a book or maybe they have never been here... I've just come back from central Thailand and I notice a slight change in the demographics in Pattaya.. Older European couples who remember freedom before PC and Sharia law and feminism and are not offended by girls in Bikinis or red light districts. Families with kids unphased by the antics in Soi 6 and WS.  I believe this forum has been strategically infiltrated by right wing American evangelical extremists and some miserable low IQ mediocrities who wish to drag people down to their own level. Anti fun and anti freedom and the worse kind of cultural imperialists.

Hard to say. The intelligent posters who leave give an intelligent reason for leaving, such as ran out of money, need for free health care in the nanny state, free Western education for the kids. Or they give no reason, just disappear. Reading through old threads sometimes for a bit of historical perspective, I rather miss some of them.

 

But one thing they have in common is that, being intelligent, they don't need to congratulate themselves on their superior intelligence and handle on the "truth." And they don't come back to the forum to do so while trolling and posting bigoted nonsense. They have better, happier things to do.

 

Member Mobi is a good case in point. Proven intelligent guy, an author, a bit disillusioned w/ Thailand but would have stayed except for the deterioration of his health and finances. When he left, he left. No subsequent trolling, sneering, posturing, and wasting webspace here. Good man; I just looked at his blog.

 

So then what we have here is, on the contrary, evidence that it's mostly the idiots who've left-- though of course more arrive daily--who obviously aren't really so happy in their new lives. As is often observed here on the forum, they probably wouldn't be happy anywhere, so their bashing can't be taken seriously.

The one thing I have noticed this year in Chiang Mai is more Americans than in the last few years. Please do not kid your self good news from Thailand will cause more travellers as well as poor news will cause less. Never think once that the last coup didn't have an affect on American tourist.

 

Most of the tourist I have seen and the few I talk to do not have any plans on going to Pattaya, they are mostly in their late 20s and early 30s usually with a girlfriend or wife in tow. Just face it the likes of the visitors in the late 90s and early 2000s are old now jeez I am 72 but still like a night on the town but not every night as I now live here.
