Truth is no-one ever said it was down. The growth in tourism is down, the incoming numbers are still higher.

Don't worry aren't the rich Indians coming soon? Overvalued Baht, Immigration treating people like criminals for having more holidays than they do, crooked cops on the take. It must be the bad farangs that are causing the problems.

maybe this has something to do with the TM30 and foreigners being monitored and treated like criminals whilst on holiday??

Nothing has changed for a tourist. They only show the passport at the reception like many years ago and what they have to do in most other countries too.

The accuracy in Thai forecasts are mind blowing. I see now they are going to the second decimal point.Most countries allow a plus or minus 2% in budgeting and this is generaly still not in the ball park.

Air is among the best in the world currently.  If you have health issues then these need investigating, but air quality isn't the problem.  (Unless there is something out of the ordinary going on in the place you live, either indoors or the immediate area.)

With what? What has changed for a European, Chinese, Australian, US tourist? Nothing. Only for expats.

I thought about going to Chiang Mai last December, but having the world's worst air quality for a brief time made me choose elsewhere instead. Not sure what the air quality is now, but it certainly didn't help their tourism industry.
