If your not a beach bum then Pattaya destroys Phuket in every way and with the best transport system in Thailand at 10 baht a pop

 

For a few baht Koh larn ferry takes you to nice clean water and yes its easy to avoid the chinese that all go to the one beach.

I Travel for holidays to SEA for 2 months or more every year and tend to rent a car at Swampy to travel around the country.  This year, though, due to the price of the Bath, I'll stick to only 5 days in BKK and than proceed to Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam.  I normally stay at luxury hotels and they will cost me 40% less in those countries as they will in the Kingdom.  And I am certainly not the only European to do so !

Thailand did got more expensive than most otherdestinations as well for most the same as back home.

 

The additiue also got the same as back home and people do like to have plesure to be able to forgt all. That not happen when you encounter the same as you try to escape from during your vacation.

 

Many I know went to otherp lace especially due to the western thai addidute and that Thailand does cost nearly the same or even more.

Yesterday I saw a group of Insians at the lawn of the Le Meridien in Chiang Mai. Everybody with an own Chang beer - for 100 Baht per small bottle. It seems not all Indians are stingy. 

Probably bought them from 7/11 across the road

Meh...more UK propaganda and fake news in a desperate attempt to undermine the wealthy that have taken over Phuket. Beamer, Benz, or Bentley...I'm fresh, I'm fly, I'm always high....my wife just picked up a Ferrari Enzo ... This ain't no lie, that's how much medical tourism is booming in Phuket. Folks so out of touch it's hillarious. Thailand, the easiest country in the world to get stupid rich in due to having zero competition. Beamer, Benz, or Bentley.

 

Beach in Naithon looks crowded to me for 5:30 on a Sunday in October.MVIMG_20191027_173348.thumb.jpg.e933697efa4f494cc3fdd1a373967eac.jpg

Do you really think that the Le Meridien allows that customers bring their own beer and bring glasses?

I've kept in touch with many of the people whom I have met here over the years, enjoying the occasional meet-up. It seems none are planning to come anytime soon. Strange that Thailand's tourism industry is pinning it's hopes of recovery on one of the most penny-pinching peoples on the planet. Sounds like a load of hot air to me. Anything to keep hopes up and to continue deflecting the blame away from the very obvious currency problem.

It's difficult for me to work out which nationality is more obsessed by money - Thais, Chinese, Indians or Americans. Help me out, please.
