Sorry your name was attached to a quote and post I made.     I thought the  post from which I quoted was humorous as it had the flavor of that    "do you know who I am"?  kind of thing.

Maybe that post disappeared.      😮

As have many others. Not a problem.

Ant time a Foreigner visits another Country , its quite possible that immigration will ask him a few questions .

   Why do you feel that your friend should be allowed to travel the world without any I.O.s asking him any questions ?

 

if he's western, westerners CAN travel the world without being asked questions

 

well, i suppose with the exception of iran, iraq, north korea, china, russia and ... Thailand 😉

The friendliness factor also has quite a bit to do with it, just returned from a 6 day trip to Cambodia, Siem Reap and Phnom Penh.

The service in both hotels I stayed in was excellent and they went the extra mile for you on more than a one occasion.

I actually stay long term in a hotel here and have seen a regular turnover of staff. The majority have ranked extremely low on the helpful/friendly scale.

they  could learn a lot from hotels in Da nang....the friendliness and service is incredible

surely some constructive coment should be positive...

I bought a lobster, at market price, in a Phuket restaurant while the 10 Chinese who snubbed their noses at the menu walked on and later passed where I was enjoying my lobster with bags of mama and durian that plainly could be seen thru the plastic bags. Big spenders those rich Chinese. Lol! 😜

My contacts in the travel industry (EU) tell me bookings are down all over the board. That impacts the number of tourists coming from Europe mainly. They're saying it's common after a massively hot summer to see a significant reduction in bookings. And this summer was truly massive and the travel industry is hurting a bit right now.

Average Chinese tourist spends 67,000 baht per vacation.  Mine is not anecdotal evidence by a bigoted anti Asian who can no longer afford Thailand it is from Nielsen.com.

How does a link which talks in general terms and mentiones popular destinations for Chinese such as Australia translates into this is how much Chinese spend in Thailand ?

 

furthermore let’s say out of 1 million Chinese , how many considered “average” ?

 

I just had a guest from UK for 21 days who has dropped about 250000 baht not including travel and board.

 

So that’s about 4 tones of your average Chinese .

 

No doubt you or your cheer leader will tell me this is not average but then I am yet to have a Chinese who would spend 1/10 of that

 

unless of course your theory is that all those buses carry average Chinese , that would explain 7-11 stores running out of mama noodles on daily basis.

You have told us previoulsy that Chinese tourists represent less than 5% of your customer base. Since you don't target the Chinese market it comes as no surprise that you haven't seen Chinese tourists spending at the same level as your anecdotaal one off, well above average UK tourist you claim to have seen recently.....why are you surprised!
