Yep. We went to Safari World a few weeks back. Just like little India. They were even playing Bollywood songs to get the crowd excited before the Dolphin show! Coach loads of single men as well as families.

I am OK with zero tourist coming to thailand.     I live here and fail to see how an influx of tourists is of benefit to me.

 

Other than small hotel and restaurant  owners of which there are fewer and fewer, I don't see how anyone could care about a lower number of tourists coming  to this  Kingdom.

They are indeed cheaper charlies than Chinese! Some were asking for a discount on the pony ride for their kid!

all the agents Agoda etc do this to try and get you to panic buy, its a sells routine,when you get in touch with the hotel direct , and the answer has always been , *yes no problem, we have a room for you *

Agoda buys a certain number of rooms. When they are sold, Agoda is sold out. The hotel may not be.

There is a reason. Thai immigrations visa rules, go figure.

What? If anything Thailand's visa rules are easy for tourists. 30 day stamp for many countries, easy tourist visas. E-visa would be nice though.

Agoda do not buy rooms, they sell rooms on behalf of the hotel. And most hotels use software known as a channel manager to control their bookings across agents and their own website so usually sold out on one is sold out on all (though some may keep a few rooms back)

I am retired and currently living in thailand. The cost of staying in thailand has increased 30% over the last years because of the exchange rate. The prices in thailand are also increasing. I dont want to go to national parks because of the double price discriminating farang policy. Thailand is to expensive and the 90 days reports and the paperwork to extend the visa or re-entry is to much work. So this year will probably be my last year in thailand

 

For your post to have any relevance, don't you think you should state the comparative currency?

 

Are we just suppost to guess?

As I said the poster "expects all others to guess".

 

A little clarity would make sense to me.

 

I'm nevertheless sad to hear his finances prevent him from staying here.

Not for the under fifties who want to stay long term they are not.
