It's very easy to avoid the Indians if that's your preference. Stay away from cheap hotels and go to bars, clubs and restaurants.....job done.

Lol, most of the cheapo hostels are filled with white people. Begpackers are sleeping on bunk beds. I see many so called rich and developed nationality begging for money in Thailand, Cambodia and Indonesia.

Great news this means you or any of your family will not be living in UK.....LOL

Come out of dilemma. I seen many Indians living there, during my trip to London and Swindon. Do not get me started with Indian restaurants in London. Been to many Indian restaurants, seen more white people dining than Indians.

Scrap the junket, Phuket is doing fine.

Oh, I forgot. 

Its Indians. 

One drink, four straws, no tips.

I pity your knowledge. Unlike USA, UK .... there is no tipping culture in many countries i.e  Japan, Korea, India. So stop seeing all culture from your lenses.

For example In USA minimum wages are not increased from many years. So eaters compensate waiters with tip.

Not that Indians look down on Indians thanks to their caste system? The Indians that come to Thailand have a well deserved reputation as cheap c****, not all but most.

Its their wish to spend their money in whatever country they want. I have been to many countries and encounters Indian almost everywhere including USA, UK, Japan, Korea, France and other european countries.

About "cheap c****" I barely seen any Indian begging for money on streets. Rarely seen Indians in any hostel.

Majority of cheap hostels are filled with white people.

You appear to have lost the plot, I am not in any form of dilemma as I know exactly where I am and what I like you on the other hand appear to have drifted off course

Some punctuation would do the world of good to your post which I heartily disagree with.

To summarise.. what you are saying is

TOO MANY OF THEM AND NOT ENOUGH OF US.

I agree with your comment on the punctuation, it would certainly help. However I heartily agree with what he said!

you should move to india where you can more enjoy the developed culture including the lovely caste system

You know nothing about the so-called caste system, except what little you may have heard, or perhaps taught, by YOUR historians writing history or whatever from YOUR perspective. I would encourage you to read proper books some more, sigh!

The price of cigarettes will go up on Phuket and the plain boxes will be littered every where.

Cigarettes are used in India, to be thrown at large mobs of people and beggars, to keep them away from you or your transport.

India's population density is 1,065 persons per square kilometer.

 

First time I've heard of cigarettes being thrown at large mobs of people in India! Unbelievable, the <deleted> one gets to read here!

Let's understand this a bit. First, India is not a homogenous country, or society, unlike most Western countries. "India" exists on many different levels, economically, socially, education wise, urban - metro/ urban- small city/ villager. My "Indian" may be completely different from your "Indian", depending on whom you've been exposed to, where and in which milieu you mingled with them. So we have many different types of Indians coming to Thailand. Those on a cheap package tour, maybe first timers anywhere abroad, only get taken to Bkk and Pattaya. Slightly more upper class, who'll go to Bkk and Phuket, but still stay in a hotel around 1500-2000 baht per day. These guys may have been to Singapore/ Malaysia/ Sri lanka. Lastly, the well-heeled Indian, well-travelled, highly educated, goes (In Thailand) to Koh Samui, Phi Phi, Krabi etc, come in foursomes, two couples, or a family. The really, really rich Indian, unfortunately, doesn't visit Thailand at all, because in India, for that class, saying you're going to Thailand, is "low society". This lot holidays in Europe or the US, luxury Med cruises, etc. 

So we can't look at Indians as a whole. I've been visiting Thailand since the late 70s, and now living in Bkk in my condo since 6 years, and have met a lot of Indians, so this is what I've learnt. Plus visited India many times and mingled with good families.
