It'll just mean bigger brides from fewer farang to make up the balance.

The brides are indeed bigger than they used to be.

Thank you. I didn't think my post was "silly". Pattaya is going backwards quickly. They want farang money but don't want us there. I'm positive there's a committee trying to find the ideal solution as we speak.

 

I don't think they know what they want.

Couldn't agree more. I think it's the general lack of common sense.

The 30 day rule has never changed. I'm guessing you're over 50? I retired at 41 with plenty of money to spend. I don't smoke, only an e cigarette. The fact is the rules have changed and I don't particularly care about the minorities and what they choose to do. You may think my post is "silly" but the facts are the facts. Can someone explain to me why after 8 years of staying in Thailand I find things more difficult than when I first came?

Because selfish sods abused the system to work illegally.

 

What about multiple entry visas which came in a while back? There's a thread about it somewhere on TVF.

You are thinking like a westerner. The vast majority of Thais don't get more than one day off a week ( if they are lucky ) and a few days holiday during the year, and not necessarily at the same time. They work whether it's a bank holiday or not.

Yeah you are right in the service industry (which is a massive part ) most the Thais I know don’t work in this sector . They get way more days off then a lot of people I know who live in America .

Pattaya is very busy all year round in parts....but quiet in other areas.  WS is always busy. Some people dont arrive till midnight! In Soi LK Metro the good bars are always busy the crap ones empty. Beach Rd is busy. Mosy shopping malls are busy. Some Rds are very busy with Traffic jams from Pratumnak to Klang on 2nd Rd.  Soi Buakao is very busy. etc etc.

And predictable comments. How many times have you been asked for a bribe?
