Thailand and Big Joke roll out the red carpet for VIP tourists: they mean the Chinese

A special lane at Suvarnabhumi airport has been inaugurated - it is for the ease and convenience of Chinese visitors. 
 
Thailand's poster boy top cop Maj Gen "Big Joke" Surachet Hakpal - deputy commissioner of the tourist police - and Pol Maj Gen Pritthipong Prayoonsiri at Region 2 immigration have shaken hands on the deal that provided the new lane. 
 
The Tourist Police Bureau website referred to it as Lane 5.
 
Both major generals were at Suvarnabhumi yesterday evening for a PR exercise assuring Chinese media that everything was all well and good in Thailand for their nationals. 
 
The TPB website said that Thailand did not want to be seen as taking advantage of the Chinese. 
 
They said VIP measures were already in place to give them every assistance from the plane to their waiting transport outside the airport. 
 
They said they were looking at short term and long term answers to problems faced by Chinese tourists.
 
Though they did not mention if this was in response to bad press after the boat accident in Phuket recently that saw many Chinese cancel their holidays. 
 
Thaivisa notes that the accident claimed many lives and has had the Thai authorities scurrying to repair the damage. Many will see the latest gesture as part of that and ask the question:
 
"What about other nationalities?"

Does that mean those Chinese VIP tour groups will forthwith no longer be clogging up the regular immigration lanes for us non-VIP people? I sure hope so.

Sickening - and so cynical (after they couldn't give any genuine human concern about the loss of all those Chinese tourists in that dreadful boat disaster). They only give VIP care and concern to MONEY (that is their god).

Single lane is not enough, they should built a special terminal just for Chinese tourists. Chinese speaking staff, whole immigration counters just to cater all of them.

So the takeaway here is I can fast track at the airport once we have a disaster killing dozen of American?  Thank you Thailand!

And special Chinese speaking taxis who can rip them off in their own language

Guess this special chinese lane will have a super small entrance with high fences, like how they keep wild cattle under control, to avoid them skipping the lines and starting to push. Plus some people with bull horns yelling instructions in Chinese to not shit on the floor, piss on each other, and keep moving.

You could not make this up, what's next a kiss of their feet, a free food basket, after their free flight and an optional to encourage what Thailand is known for a free shag with a "take good care happy ending" free hooker?

Smile and wave.  The writing is on the wall, and has been for quite some time.  There will be no change is this trajectory...
