Yes indeed, all those thousands of Chinese fleeing Cambodia due to the new ban by the Cambodian authorities on on-line gambling and telecommunications fraud!!

What is this obsession with tourism...I'v never seen anything like it in my whole life. Is anybody telling me that the average person cares too hoots about it.

  During my over 5O years of drinking, before giving it up,....I do not ever remember the topic of "The tourism figures" ever cropping up as a conversation piece in the many thousands of pubs I frequented?

 

There is not much news available with forum news 🤣

That is because, before the numbers went tits up, every official in Thailand was spouting the wrong information, that tourism is only responsible for 3% of the GDP.

Now that the numbers are down, the truth comes to light, that it might have been a few more %!

And the average persons do care!

Don't forget, that "tourism" is not only a bus full of people, entering a hotel lobby!

It is the person selling the bus, the person repairing the bus, the person cleaning the lobby, the restaurant and bar owners outside of the hotel etc etc etc

If you think about it for a few seconds, you will see just how many "average" people are working for or related to tourism business!

You're right about most things but not 'Repairing the Bus'...that is never taken into consideration until it either expires knackered or becomes a heap of mangled metal !

And of course it's not necessary to consider that a big percentage of them book on airnbnb and co.

In Pattaya for example, while most of the hotels are struggling trying to fill at least half of the rooms condos like The Base and others  are totaly full of chineses tourists and very very busy all the time.

And a lot of the rooms are owned by Chinese
