"Congratulations Chinese people you not drown. But we take you to Chiang Mai next by minivan. You die for sure."

Is it wrong to hope there is more airport slapping?

I think the happy slapper lost his job.

Some Chinese just bought the hotel were my wife worked in Chiang Mai they paid between 200 to 300 million for hotel with big plans to make changes. Maybe they know something or they will lose their butts.

Walked around Chiang Mai lately? It has a massive glut of hotels even if the Chinese return in force. No one wants to talk about.

 

On the positive side I actually saw some guests leaving one of those three new boutique hotels between the old/new refurbished Hotel M and Kafe on soi 5 moonmuang RD. Two and a half months, sure, but people were sited. WooHoo!

Something has to be done, everyone agreed

I'm just glad everyone agreed on doing something and they didn't start hitting each other.

Learn Chinese? Hmmm, after decades of promoting English language learning the country is still struggling with nearly the lowest competency in the region. Still, nothing wrong with a little bit of hopeless optimism I suppose 🙄

The Chinese were feeling disrespected, said Chiang Mai news. 

Like most visitors

After all, said reps at the the meeting, are not 80% of Thais descended from the Chinese anyway in some way or another and aren't we all one big "happy family"? 

Sure everyone in China, all ethnic groups love each other.  They don't.  What a dumb comment.  The Thais were forced out of China.

At least the Chinese could be confident of getting the visa stamps for the price on the receipt - 2,000 baht. 

A pretty low bar when it comes to confidence.  And you wonder why Thailand leaves a bad taste in their mouth.  

 

Dual pricing want away in China two decades ago.  Their immigration does not have a rock star  at the head with media consultants

Why Chinese tourists have stopped coming to Chiang Mai in one picture.  :whistling:

The hotels and TAT have as much as said that they could care less about farangs.  And as the government keeps 'improving' places like Koh Pahngan and Kaow San Road those from the US, UK, EU, and commonwealth countries are taking the "farang aren't really welcome anymore" hint and choosing to vacation elsewhere. And now Western retirees are being informed that they too are persona non grata.  I'm sure the TAT will roll out some press release with cherry picked statistics to show how rosey tourism is, but Thai business owners know better.  And as far as the Chinese?  Mess with one member of the Borg and the Borg will dry up.  Mess with a farang and no one cares.  Farangs are pretty independent and not even their own governments get involved with Thai on tourist crime.  Mess with Chinese tourists?  The government notices and then the hive reacts.  At some point you'd think that Thailand would stop shooting itself in the foot.  Maybe not!  :coffee1:

My daughter who works in the Hotel industry,says numbers

are definitely down a lot, and the Chinese are now going to,

Japan,lot less rip offs and a lot safer,and I think once they

are gone they won't be returning,and really who can blame

them.

Yes I hear you, but financially two different worlds.

I would suspect a lot of Chinese just can't afford Japan the way they can Thailand.
