That’s why so many can’t leave. They don’t admit it, but the girlie bars are full of old timers.

I'm "babbling" on the whole situation for foreigners who are allowed to spend all their cash, but aren't welcome when they can't show a certain amount of dosh. 

 

     I do not have the feeling anymore that I'm welcome home. That was totally different 17 years ago and all was relaxed. 

 

Now you might reply and tell me that I'm free to leave? Sooner, or later, I will. 

 

 

the 20k applies to everyone and you leaving has nothing to do with the topic

You get what you pay for. If they want Chinese and Indians who will change their destination over a 2000b visa fee, then that’s the type of budget tourist they will get.

 

I think Thailand needs more people walking in the roads, spitting on the ground, climbing on Buddha statues for photos, and being noisy. They can then double / triple price and scam them until they stop coming too.

Read the wording

"on the table for.. consideration" 

"intends to introduce" 

"later this year" 

 

Might actually happen, or maybe just another Minister Somchai trying to get attention and keep his job title(?)

...my all-around fave TOT goof hadda be marketing Pattaya as a "HoneyMoon Destination" to Eastern Europeans some years back, about 2008-2010, what a fiasco. There were plenty of lawsuits coming from various countries thinking the whole campaign a brutal joke, which is was to many brides who lost their man to a ladyboy or to Soi 6. TOT is staffed by kon Thai, most can barely speak English and they are acting like seers.

Laughable, TIT.

The ex grooms might be happier now than married

Good luck with attracting the Chinese. Bad news coverage aside, the Chinese Central Bank just artificially devalued the yuan to offset new US tariffs. It's at a historic 10 year low!

 

 

same strategy for the baht would be great to stimulate exports and tourism

Racism!!!! Typical Thai mentallity.

 

I'm leaving at the end of this month, and so happy to be leaving.

Thailand has been nothing but a waste of many years of my life efforts plus alot of money and for what?

 

 

 

I'd go along with that sadly.....everything easy with hindsight

Yes, precisely that - the feeling of being welcomed. The feeling of being a welcome guest is long, long gone. Now it feels more like treading on restricted grounds. One misstep and you're out!

Lol , all the immigrants in this forum get upset with other immigrants.. all are just immigrants you got no rights to complain..

None of us, from US, UK, India, or China, are immigrants. We're just tourists on Non-Immigrant visa extensions.

Its only when you visit other countries after an extensive time solely coming to Thailand you realise how absolutely shight you are treated in Thailand.

Visiting Greece and subsequently Bulgaria after initially a 24 year gap was an eye opener. I've had enough of the place completely. Done my 169 visits am close to calling it a day completely and going southern Spain in British winters to offset some of the colder months
