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"?

Tell that to an ordinary Thai to get smashed in the head.

...we fell for it for years....and the 'disarming smile'....and it cost us dearly....

 

...now we don't get even side-ward glances....especially when word is out that we have already been cleaned out....555

 

...if it's any consolation....the Chinese have absolutely learned from our mistakes....

 

...and from recent horrific experiences of their own....

Over the last year we've met Chinese Tourists in several Resorts and places around the country and they can almost all speak English, something they have noticed that the Thai's don't, so i don't think they are bothered if Thai's can speak Mandarin and anyway it would be several decades wait for that, as most Thai's in the Tourist Industry need to grow a brain first !

Well, after 30+ years of not managing alien languages like English to start with - give it another try with Mandarin. Assume that those quality tourists from the Red country in the North it might be possible, that they are more familiar with Taechiew, Hokkien or any other Chinese language. If all measures fail = there is always Article 44 😉

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 🙄

I must correct you I talk to many Chinese and they all speak perfect english not like Thais  they can't speak a word of english and don't forget some speak Cantonese

A crackdown against this sort of thing is coming.

 

Unfortunately there are so many crackdowns currently happening that it might take some considerable time before you notice an improvement, if indeed you are still here to notice and are not yourself the victim of a crackdown beforehand. 🎫😕

Coming next:

a crackdown on crackdowns

Nothing to do with the Chinese tourist boat tragedy.

 

Chiang Mai has become boring. No decent nightlife, the centre of town is a complete dump and possible to visit all the so-called tourist attractions in under 3 days including rip off prices for foreigners and the hotels are expensive. The city lost it`s zest years ago. It`s become a last grazing ground for male elderly expats with not much else going for it.
