I think they have this wrong. To me it's pretty simple. If there's no entertainment there is no venue. It's not all about tuk tuk and taxis. They were there before.

Yes, please don’t cheat and beat the tourists otherwise we might have to do some work and arrest someone. Now run along you nice Tuk-Tuk people and keep up the good work. Thailand number one.

Soon there will be no tourists left anyway so they can go back and grow rice on the farms instead.

he will have all the cheating by himself same as his father

buy his apartments for millions of bath can use 2 weeks a year else have to pay and can not have 2 weeks in highseason free.

but he give 7% or similar annual of investment (not 7% of income which probably is greater)

and to help him with this the goverment deemed airbnb illegal 

he is not an honest man he says he have 10 up educations but havent learned enough or anything 

he probably do more to effect the tourist industry negative than the most include the tuk tuk
