Your daughter should be thankful they did not demand free water and food for them to cook.

 

My esteemed guests from India usually demand unlimited supply of water, unlimited supply of toiletries, free taxi rides to any destination, including airport, free breakfast, lunch and dinner served in room and as it turns out minibar provided should also be free because drinks were in the fridge in their room, so therefore its free.

 

And to put cherry on top, all of this in my cheapest room, 600 baht room shared by 2 man

I refused a booking a couple of years ago from 4 Indian guys in a 2 bedroom villa they complained to Airbnb I was being racist

You are indeed😂😛 i was labelled bad because i did not give respect to Indians and did not embrace them(not my words, theirs) 

 

What i did wrong i did not allow a herd of 7 of them to gang rape 1 girl.

A lot of ridiculous comments here. 

Easy to call them 'cheap charlies' collectively, but the ones who offer the low prices probably pay similarly in their country for the 'low end' street worker.

Not unlike people from the UK who are now comparing local prices to the prices they pay in the UK....and complaining about it.

The irony is that the 'cheap charlies' might reduce prices to realistic levels for themselves. The fact is that you were likely 'overpaying' in the first instance for a low end product.

 

On the other hand, I was speaking to a Russian girl the other day and she told me that she charges and obtains 3000 baht for her time from the supposed 'cheap charlies'.

People from the UK do not share 1 bed between 2 man and do not share 1 bottle of water between 8 or 1 girl between 2-10 wanting to pay 100 baht each.

 

People from the UK may well be cheap charlies and will hunt for cheapest price, but people from the UK do not go into 7-11 and start bargaining,

And the vast majority of these are the poor and cant afford to take holidays even in their own country for more than a couple of days .

The point is that even a small minority of a huge population is still a very large number.

So?

There aren't 1.2 billion people in the UK. Different lifestyle, different culture. 

Let's be honest. Many just came to exploit poor local girls. So pretending to care about their welfare whilst exploiting them yourselves, just doesn't wash.

The only difference is the amount of money you may have to spend.

It doesn't make you better.

One bar girl to service 12 Indian males @ 200 baht each. Tell me again these low life's are not cheap charlies!

 

If you were offered the service for 200 baht, you wouldn't be complaining. Maybe envious because you need to pay a lot more?

Didn't take long for Thais to adopt dog whistles did it? The expression ánd they're not Cheap Charlies' contains the embedded suggestion that the current visitors are heap charlies. But then, adopting the Napoleon Wisdom, 'never attribute to malice what is adequately explained by incompetence', would probably be sensible…

 

Besides, adoption of the expression 'Cheap Charlies' speaks volumes about this guy itself...

Wow, you are probably one of the quickest on this forum to come out with a negative Thai comment - and that is saying something.

 

Did you read the article?  "This guy" gave a talk at the South Asia Travel and Tourism Exchange.  That's it.  Do you really think he said "Wahey, they are not Cheap Charlies!!"?  I'm sure you do because you are so anti-Thai everything, you probably really believe he used those words - indeed you say as much.  Quite unbelievable, you really do think he said that.

 

The headline is a spin by the quite consistently poor "Webfact".  You do realise that right?  Or do you think that all Thai officials write their own internet headlines?
