I am a long term expat and I take frequent holidays to Jakarta to have fun instead of locally . 

 

Why?

 

Because I am tired of having to pay top money for crap service, put up with crap English and bad attitude.

 

In Jakarta , I pay less, female company speaks good enough English, no sisters or brothers calling for her to go fast, no mobile phone that she must play with , I do not hear sad stories about sick mother or father and I get exactly what we agreed.

 

Taxi, grab, dirt cheap. Food just as cheap, and no one annoying you to buy some crap while you out , no hassles with police and friendly immigration 

why is jakarta just a short holiday for you?

I don't think they're asking that much.. I doubt even that in Phuket or BKK any 50 year old women will get any customers the way things are right now. Let alone get paid the amount of money you mentioned for an hour. Isn't $100 around 3,500 baht!

Yes they are asking that much, and you right , they not getting any customer, $100 is more inline 3000 baht , just little over

Way to expensive now and the military can't see that their over inflated baht is killing them.

The military does not control the relative value of the baht to the pound or USD.  If they could they would lower it not raise it.

And a way to strong Baht. Thailand used to be an affordable country for holidays. Not anymore as the Baht is way too strong. And that is also for the Export. Just look at the price for rice, and the declining of that as export as well. And Toyota making an assembly factory for HiLux in Myanmar, as they lose money on every assembled car in Thailand. Just saying.

And Toyota building a huge new factory in Indonesia, for the local market, they dat, but up till now these units were built in Thailand.

Ergo, export is getting too expensive, due to the high baht, maybe the higher wahre, maybe, maybe.

But blaming the political situation is rather farfetched, in Myanmar and Indonesia it is the army that Peel the potatoes, much more and deeper as in Thailand.
