I thought the headline was going to be

Thailand government promotes 18 measures to make life unbearable for people on long stay visa / extensions.

Corrected your minor error to  "more unbearable"

Build more 7-11s

Formally eliminate all traffic regulations

Supply facemasks to all taxi and tuk tuk drivers so they can't be identified

Expand dual pricing

Train monkeys to be immigration officers

 

I always thought they were already using monkeys.

How about a “people skills “ course for immigration officers and honoring visas issued by Royal Thai Embassies/Consulates.

The dreamers are at it again, a good start would be to address the over valued Baht, because that's what's keeping the tourists away...

And TM 50 for everytime you take a leak and TM 60 for a dump, both to be presented within 12 hours of the event with each completed seperately along with all pages of your passport, TM 6 and current 90 day if applicable, all presented in duplicate. 

Along with irrefutable evidence of the events. 555

I'm done with visiting Thailand.  They wanna take fingerprints at the airports now "to keep Thailand safe" and I only wonder how long it will be before they start drawing blood for DNA samples.

 

It's a corrupt place that is getting boycotted by myself and many of my friends.  That Tourist Number is likely to drop further in the coming years.

No mention of TM30? So they can give fines out again. 

More tourists = more potential victims of arbitrary fines, as well as cheating.

Personally I don't see a big problem limiting alcohol availability.  Gives a person an opportunity to sober up once in a while. 

And you can't do that without these dumb days?

Sad, really!

But even more sad: this is about the tourists!

I doubt, that anybody sits down on the computer and goes through Buddhist- holidays, that may or may not have restrictions on alcohol, to do holiday- planning!

On top of that: alcohol -restrictions for pre- elections and elections and all kinds of unforeseen ...ahm...special- days!

And by now, this has been extended to hotel bars and hotel restaurants!

 

I don't think, this is the major problem!

But it is part of the whole problem!

 

No sunbeds and umbrellas on the beaches (really cool, to lie down on your back, flat on a towel...especially for older people) and no one to clean up the beaches anymore!

The overall dirt and garbage!

The danger on the roads, for drivers or pedestrians!

The corrupt (tourist) police!

The 20 immigration counters at Swampy, of which half (at best) are manned by completely unfriendly personal!

The scams, the double pricing....

 

Thailand will now see, that it is harder to win tourists back, with completely idiotic measures, instead of keeping them by being "nice"!

Seriously? People can't buy their booze the day before the bars close and drink at home?

LOL.

this is about TOURISTS!

And they usually don't know "the day before", that one of these days is coming!

 

Okay...fixed this for you!

You are welcome!

It would be good if Thailand could encourage their IO's to honour Visas that have been purchased in good faith. My country for example will not allow you entry without an approved Visa after stringent checks.

That way when people are coming in it is unlikely they are going to be refused entry.

I thought the idea of a Visa was to test the applicant to ensure their passage was genuine.

Or water pollution, e.g. sewage-polluted beaches like Pattaya, Patong, etc.

I don't think that they notice sewerage.  My friends wife was in Buriram hospital with a spinal problem. After a few days they discovered that she has developed a spinal infection. On visiting her he looked out the window and right below was an open sewerage plant with flowing sewerage. Wonderful is'nt it.
