This can't be correct ….  the usual TV farang keep telling everyone that tourism in Thailand and Cambodia is going down.

That no one is coming here or Cambodia anymore and all the farang are leaving because of the TM30 ….  LOL  😛

Better start counting each of the Chinese going through the airport as three people in a new Okeykokey style count . Once in , once out and once shaking it all about

Thailand now too expensive for the Chinese--I hope.  Because it's getting too expensive for westerners...

I just LOVE it when those numbers have a fresh, "just pulled out your butt" fragrance.

Read it and weep Thailand, never mind, I'm sticking my usual 500,000bt a year into you, for now anyway. Won't miss that, will you? A drop in the ocean. Well, apart from a few soi dogs, my teerak, the credit company supporting her rather impecunious purchase of a pick-up, and numerous local traders and neighbours. Why I stay here is beyond me. I'm just lazy. There will reach a tipping point though - not quite there yet, but getting close.
