The Thai exchange rate gives poor value to tourists, once the rich Indians have had their one visit they will move on to greener pastures, just like the Chinese. I don't know any Thai who has nice things to say about Indian people, they will feel unwelcome, so I don't expect any long term boom.

I thought they were just coming for the short term boom boom.

Russians - Chinese - Indians - ??? Maybe Marsians coz nothing else left.

I remember everybody complaining about the Russians in the glory days. Wait until the Indians come in numbers.

Run Forrest, run...

I work in hotel Patong part time before during peak season.

90% of Indians are no problem, like 90% of European, 90% of Russian, 90% of Chinese etc etcๆ

 

Every country have about 10% that we don’t want to come back. Each country make problem little different way.

 

Chinese because noisy and messy. Don’t care the rule. Steal small thing. But spend a lot shopping and for tour.

 

Russian don’t smile much, can only speak Russian. Hard to know if they complain or happy. Confuse the staff. But not too much problem.

 

Indian, there food smell a lot. Big group hard to control but family group is very nice and polite.

 

European bring the sex worker to the hotel. Make other guest uncomfortable Angry drunk and complain. But spend a lot in bar.

 

All groups sometimes a little smelly if not shower.

 

But 90% everyone is no problem, nice , polite, friendly and enjoy the holiday.

 

Every country is welcome to enjoy our culture and country if they polite. Our culture is make you feel welcome and enjoy.

It's a race to the bottom and it looks like we are in the knock out stages of the contest. Indian tourists where? Pattaya, Phuket? Not up north and not in Bangkok as of three weeks ago when I was there. 

Indians and Pakistanis have been coming to Thailand for many years now, they just don't go to the same places as other nationalities. Safari World is packed with them, every single day.

Well they will get the Chinese back and more when they open legal casinos. Arrivals of Chinese by the sh*t loads. Add a sportsbook and Indians can enjoy betting the 100 million dollars gambling market of cricket while basking in the Phuket Sun. Casinos are the last big frontier for Thailand and their demise.

Just recently Ive seen groups of Indians around Rawai I can tell they are not rich Indians cheap charlie tour groups 1 coke and 4 straws 

If by coke you mean 1 lady on beach road and by 4 straws you mean 4 men eagerly negotiating down the 500baht fee,  then I would tend to agree. 😁

I honestly believe that when the number of Indians reaches a certain level, not far above their present numbers, all civilized westerners will stop coming here. Between their arrogance, ignorance, and penchant for washing their undies in the hotel swimming pools, the basic fact is they are not big spenders and have a negative effect wherever they appear in numbers 😞

I don't really understand how they can be any good for the Thai economy? I mean, how often do you see groups of indians eating in Thai restaurants, spending money in 7elevn, drinking at the local bars, spending money in the local markets, and so on...
from what I have seen, they go to places like Pattaya & Phuket, rent a cheap 500 thb hotel, and share between a group of 5 men, and then share their "fun" for the night too. 

Or maybe i'm just missing something here?

It's not going to happen. I lived and traveled in India for 4 years. If one is polite and steps aside to allow someone on the bus before oneself you won't be able to break back into the queue. I've had to pay railway porters  to lift and push me through the widow of the train in Agra...and the passengers inside the train were trying to push me out. It was very crowded! It's a dog eat dog world!

We need a WOW emoticon.  That's just amazing! Frightening maybe.  People trying to push you out.  Yikes!

Now TAT in panic and they do everything they can to destroy the country by millions of tourists who are far from quality tourists as there are much better places in this world.

People need to wake up and stop spewing the same old rhetoric. There are, and always has been, more Indian, Chinese,  tourists and ex-pats here than <insert home country here>.

You just look stupid quoting one coke and four straws.

There are millions and millions of middle class Indians who travel, make and spend more than your average western expat/tourist.

They are not staying in a guest-house in soi sexpat, chowing down on the 99 baht breakfast special. Chances are an Indian expat owns the guest-house and the restaurant.

 

My wife does some work for a couple of Indian guys in Pattaya, they are filthy rich, they own hotels, restaurants. I have met and socialised with these people and their visiting friends. The friends stay at 5 star hotels, hire a minivan and driver, a nanny for the kids, they probably spend in a day what a fan room expat spends in a week. You wont see them at 7/11 or on a baht bus or nursing the happy hour beer.
