Amazing that they actually have to be ASKED not to do things that are <deleted> common sense in any civilized society. Phuket is such a shithole. Never again. Either they get rid of the taxi mafia or get rid of tourists, can't have both!!

You have not realised but they are concentrating on getting rid of tourists 😂😂😂

Isn't it amazing that this question even needs to be considered, let alone asked.

The only reason this has happened is because tourist arrivals are way way down.

2 weeks ago Banyon Tree at Laguna had 2 rooms occupied.  Patong is very very quiet.  When it hits them in the pocket they care but otherwise not.

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

Absolutely, Thais are killing their own nest egg, each day its just another nail in the lid of the

tourism coffin, but they are too stupid and greedy to realise that one day there will be no tourists, unless you count the cheap charlie chinese conducted tourists who are musterd from venue to venue like a herd of cattle and dont spend money anywhere. Actually now i think about it they do remind me of a herd of cattle, as cattle shit and piss anywhere and everywhere.

And because of the desire to avoid the tuk-tuks, tourists with no license or experience rent a motorcycle for 200 Baht for 24 hours, which is the same price as one tuk-tuk trip within Patong. The accident they will have later is free.

Exactly...."if" the powers- that- be (debatable to begin with) have no common-sense to see these actions by the "grifters" there in Thailand affect future tourism, then said 'dopes" need to either go back to school...prioritize "things" to ensure that said tourists are not screwed by said unscrupulous people in question....OR forget about over-stays, sex-related activity, etc. Get your f....g shit together and figure out "how"- if un-addressed your country will essentially fall by by the way-side. And then, you have no one to blame but your ignorant selves. Worry about your grifters first- the legal thieving  people that are allowed by your non-sensical people in charge. Either pay them more....either get serious about the negative mafia crap.....and if not, then people will go elsewhere. Dual pricing.Bad attitudes. "if" you do not want tourism , then get you are seemingly maing that impression.

 

And meanwhile, the junta and its <deleted>-up thinking (and the King's thoughts?) re: all of this BS is at the very least "nominal". In other words, your show or display needs to be centered upon the rip-off artists/ grifters there. If not, then you're a waste of time.

Asked, but not told.

Beating and cheating MUST be illegal.

Lame.

Hello low-life’s, we will ENFORCE these laws going forward, because you are killing business for all. Get in line now or pay the price.

 

Nope. Just...

Please stop cheating and beating tourists.

Lame. Lame. Lame.

Honestly, it seems that the Thai people in power either need consult OR they just do not give a f..k.

So now we will discuss mental health in Thailand.....it seems non-existent. Sad- obviously not a priority, but yet the mafia and their "contributions" - brown envelopes for everything under the sun. And "what" would the king say? Blindness does not lend to leadership.
