Because the Thai ladies are so accommodating, cheap and will do anything for few baht.

rarely with an indian, in CM I saw a mama san exhorting the girls to sit with two Indian males who had been sitting by themselves for an hour, nobody took any notice, I had two sitting with me.

Thats the point I was making, there are more tourists and expats from many countries that outnumber western tourists. China, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia etc etc.

 

Financially definately not, there are as many russians and americans than they are indians, grouping Japan and Korea together with China is hilarious, they are the same type of tourists as europeans and americans.

 

1.2 mio Americans in 2008,

1.5 mio Russians and

1.6 mio indians.

 

 

I doubt the americans are the ones who spent least here.

Just a couple of photos of the big Indian nightclubs in Pattaya. Makes you wonder how they make money being full of 4 guys sharing one drink.

"OR", just maybe its just a myth.

I've run into many Indians here in Viet Nam and find their English to be very understandable and their food to be quite tasty. When I ask them why they chose Viet Nam over Thailand they say the Thai baht and two tier pricing. They are easy to get along with and don't bother me at all.

I am going to be as racist as possible here because OMG the racism is strong in this group of white trashes trying to justify why growing Indian tourists are a bad news for Thailand and why Thai should attract more white people who turn out criminals, pedophiles, theifs, killers, beggers, etc. All hiding from police in Isaan with their poor young wives and crying about strong baht. All these white fat old blokes leave their white fairyland and come to Thailand because it's the only place where young women still give a shit about them.

When was the last time you saw an Indian in the news for a bad crime in Thailand?

Also last time I checked Thailand is culturally more related to India than any other country so it's heavily dependent on India for everything and India contributes a lot in it's growth. It's never going to stop Indians from coming. Some of the richest Immigrants in Thailand are Indians and that's why you see them everywhere.

What did white people contribute to Thailand - prostitution.

I know some white admin will remove this comment but leave the rest of the racist comments. So I don't care. Truth is truth. 😄

The portuguese gave them chillies, the rest of farangland gave them televisions, radios, iphones, cars, motorbikes, computers, aircraft, steel ships, water pumps, concrete, proper shoes, underwear, watches, guns, a parliamentary system, printing machines, karaoke etc. They gave us Thai wisdom and kick boxing.

Absolute rubbish, Japanese expats are the biggest group in Thailand. 

There are twice as many Malay tourists coming to Thailand than indians, so that part is also rubbish and Malays/Japanese/Koreans where the biggest tourist group before it was Chinese.

 

Why make stuff up all the time? It's just not true.

Link please or are we supposed to believe a random poster on Thai Visa?

I have seen extraordinary racism in thailand towards Indians.  I don't know if it's justified or not, I have little experience with Indians in Thailand.  The ones I meet here in the US seem alright. 

 

I've lived and worked in India. Extremely interesting county with more contrasts than most.

 

One observation, and this is just my opinion, is that Indians are totally different at home than when abroad on holiday. At home they are most welcoming, hospitable, generous and love it if you show an interest in their culture and food. When traveling abroad on holiday they become arrogant, rude, demanding, always trying to do things on the cheap, and try and behave like they're some Bollywood star or hiso celebrity. 

 

Given most Indians I know, have a preconception about what Thailand is and what's available, I wouldn't expect that the Indians coming will be rich families looking for cultural trips!

Next.....Thailand solves Americas homeless problem by putting all the homeless on planes and increasing the tourist arrivals in Thailand....

 

Sorry but hells going to freeze over before we welcome or value any western expats who have been contributing to Thailand for decades....  

 

Sad, eh? I bring millions of baht in export business to several companies in Thailand . When I recently renewed my visa and work permit, was anyone even remotely curious about what my business did? Did anyone ask if my business brought value to The Kingdom? No. Only the sign on my office was not quite right, so go do it again with a sign we like. NOTE: it's been the same sign for 5 years.

Very good at shooting themselves in the foot though!

Maybe someone should let those arrogant girls on TF know to stop posting 'No Indians' on their pages.

 

They are not obliged to accept customers who they don't want.

Indian-Americans are the richest ethnicity in the USA, double the household income of European-Americans.
