Apples and oranges.

Sexclubs and quickies with gypsies are not comparable with the girlfriend experience that one can have in LOS.

Forum rules preclude going into detail.

I see, so your name should read thai****lover 😀

Singapore is the only one that stands out in the region for proper planning and development, said Kevan. “With Singapore, short-term thinking is the next 10 years, long term is 50 years. With virtually every other country in the region short term is yesterday and long term is tomorrow.”

 

The Thais can't see past tomorrow, as can be seen in their infrastructure planning 

I'm afraid Thailand is pricing itself out of the market now. Thats why the chinese and Indians are turning up because the place is empty of the people that matter, the Europeans

Just had a look at 5 start hotels Samui 1st december  and they are nearly all  around $230 USD on booking.com. The article is definitely incorrect

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

Not really

The problem (price) subject of the OP seems to be specific to a few islands only.

The cost of a five-star resort in Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Samed has reached around $500 per room per night //

Looking on the Internet  I can see by example that it's no problem in Pattaya to find 5 stars resort in the 2'000-4'000 B range, very far from the 15'000 B in the OP.

I could have used something like that, but I'd assume it would be against forum rules

So One travel agent is bellyaching that ALL 5 star resorts are charging 150 dollars a night more for 5 star tourists.

No hyperbole, brimful of empirical data and a great opportunity to have a thai bash session for some.

Ah the power of social media

Meanwhile Thais are wondering why the tourists arent coming

Not to worry, the Russians are back and together with the Chinese and Indians, it will be a record breaking high season.

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.

And weather you wanted to go to Thailand for a trip instead of the boring places we all go to
