OK, I've never seen that I was once sat in a bar in Patong were they ordered a bottle of Sangsom 1500 Baht I thought you robbing so an so

So I hope TAT has informed all 7/11 shops to stock up Vodka and beer. Not to forget hiring more strong bouncers in the walking street area.

The Russians - once scared off foreign travel including Thailand due to the collapse of the rouble - are now back in droves. 

 

Rouble has fallen further against the US dollar so this is total bull s%%t media piece. I have been in Russia for the last two years on assignments, first year exchange rate was 55 rouble to $1, last year it got worse to 59 rouble to $1. Currently today is peaking downhill at 64 rouble to $1. Pity the writers dont check their facts before making up stories.

The story doesn't say that they are back because the rouble improved, just that they stopped coming for a while when it went down.

Naew Na reported that Nong Nuch gardens was giving a big "Nobro pozhalovat' v Tailand" (welcome to Thailand) for the Russians. 

 

And that welcome to Thailand includes double-pricing there, doesn't it?

Nice to know that the Russians are the answer to the tourism dilemma .

Personally i find groups of Russians not only extremely rude and pushy, but loud and arrogant. Pity the locals having to put up with them in large numbers again.

 

 

The same was said about the Israelis 20 years ago, but now that would be anti semitic.
