Popular Thai Beaches Pricier Than European Resorts: It’s Not Just About the Higher Baht

It’s easy to blame the baht as the butt of the problem for a decline in European arrivals to Thailand. The issues are wider and deeper than just currency appreciation.

What a load of rubbish, of course it is the hight value of the baht that makes holidays expensive in Thailand change the exchange rate then do the math for the price of rooms....LOL

Most people never stay in 5 star hotels so the article is not relevant to real life.  Im Bangkok we usually stay in Red Planet in Asoke for about A$60 per night. Room is small but new, clean and absolutely no noise ! A bargain !  Thats all we want.

You have a wife. You probably don't know why farang men go to Thai beaches, or if you do, it's not important to you.

When such options are available on the Med, expect to see more single men there.

In Italy there are many gypsies on the parking lot at the beach, i saw them spreading their legs to me when i just walked there alone....

And i'm sure there are plenty sexclubs around there, for sure there are loads in Germany with east european girls...

If I really wanted to visit LOS I would, whatever the exchange rate.

Plenty of rooms for under 1000 baht all over LOS if one looks.

The genuine smile of ordinary Thais departed Thailand many years ago. Having experienced it myself, I regret that it left, as it was truly a wondrous thing.

Only other place where people smiled like that where I've been was rural Fiji, in the 70s.

Do people who use 5* resorts worry about the price?

I would have though the weather, service and beach/sea quality would be all that mattered.


I use 5* resorts and worry about the price.  But if the price is not right and fair, I prefer to stay at home in my 5* home. The high-season prices are usually way more than I am willing to pay, but I also prefer to avoid the crowd and therefore travel in the low-season only.
