Rich Indians to the Rescue as Chinese Tourists Shun Thailand

You know my wife is the same....she says doesn't like their smell. Although she doesn't like muslims either but never really gave a reason.

It sounds bigoted to my ears but what's strange is that she is a very loving, well-travelled and open minded woman and doesn't seem to harbour any other grudges or prejudices against other groupings of people, and rarely says a bad word about anyone.

Think this is all brainwashing, most Thais think the same, doubt that most of them have ever smelled how an Indian or any other nationality smells. Been to India for many years and don't think they smell worse than any other group of people living in hot countries.

Wasn't the Barharn (the eel) who said if a snake or an Indian crosses your path kill the Indian.'

Maybe Thai social media would be kinder to the poor misunderstood Indians if they worked on their personal hygiene a little and didn't berate Thai wait staff in restaurants. Of course, Indian still has a strong caste system and bring those attitudes to Thailand.

These people still practice the ‘caste system’, treating waiters etc as pond life is the norm.... I see trouble ahead 

One of the more unpleasant things about Indians is they think money makes you a king, and if you have none you are no better than a soi dog, they bring this mentality with them when they emigrate

Oh no !!! We have a resort and though many complain about Chinese, as long as it’s not a big group and you explain what can and can’t be accepted they have been generally good. India on the other hand, you will be in for a shock. We just booked 2 nights at a hotel in CM and we checked out at 2am as the Indian guests were so bad and even when hotel staff told them to shut up they carried on. Don’t forget Indians are happy to try and bargain down prices on everything. They are not the saviour of tourism only the value of the baht can fix it.

REALLY! Did you venture outside of your 5 star hotel? I have traveled to over 60 countries around the world including two trips (for work) to India. I'll never go back.

Yes, I have been around many areas in India and worked there for 8 years. Some areas are very poor and clean water is a problem, the Thai's would also smell if they had no access to tap water for daily showers. But to say that Indians smell worse than other nationalities I can not agree to.

The ugly fact that Thais don't like to admit is that the untold billions of dollars that the USA poured into Thailand during the Vietnam war was the springboard for the development of the Thai economy today. Now it is "Go home Yank" at least until the Chinese spring their Debt Trap on Thailand and try to take over the country. Then, like so often happens throughout the world, they will cry for American (Western) help. The Thais need to realize that if they lie with dogs they are bound to get fleas. 

The American embassy has done more harm to Americans than Thailand ever thought of doing.  The Thais kicked us out in 1975.  Been fine since then as far as I can tell.

Let's be honest. The first thing is that we need honesty. Regardless of your own personal prejudice.

Total total stupidity by the thai tourists board 

when will they ever learn 

now it’s the Indians 

they are worst than the Chinese 

never spend money if they do always want to get the price down they

are like vermin filling the streets walk in to bars have one coke or water and share with 4 of them 

also trying to sell you fake watches and other fake items 

they do nothing for the average thai person trying to make a living

its the tourist from the west England Europe Australia America who spend in Thailand 

but due to the high bht and they persecution about visas

they are staying away 

we now go to Vietnam fantastic Cambodia fantastic Philippine fantastic 

anywhere that wants our money 

wake up government and say to all other than Indian and Chinese we want you to PLEASE COME BACK

but it may be to late for the average Thai person trying to make enough to eat 😭😭😭😭😭

They are somehow making money, so yes, I would presume someone is drinking. Like any business they would be shut if not making money.

So in other words you do not have a clue IF it’s making money ? Or breaking even or loosing money ? Or just surviving ?

Just walk past the VOA area in Swampy airport at certain times of the day,you can smell the curry before you get there.Travelling on a crowded sky train,a family of six Indians got on,within a few stops the whole carriage had those nose sticks out,and even though it was crowded a clear space developed around the Indian family.

I love the smell of curry in the morning.
