The Chinese know that the Thai are habitual thieves and liars. The good news is that they are happy to let everyone know. Great news also for the Philippines Ministries of Immigration and Tourism.

Everything gets lost. 6 years ago I was on Boracay the last time. A bad experience. 25 years ago it was a great place for young people with a great easy atmosphere. I stayed there many months and enjoyed every single day. But the last time I was happy when I left.

Dhamma Centre in MaeJo have done this special tourist fiasco event every year.

Problem this year, they weren't allowed to release Khom Loys on the 'VIP' day.

The free event for the locals, which used to be amazing and where all the 'advertising videos' were filmed, hasn't happened for 2 years now.

 

Great video. Do you know what burned down on this day... 😉

The angry crowd were furious they had been charged 6,000 baht for VIP tickets - and got virtually nothing.

Spread the word.... :thumbsup:

It was amazing before.. Glad I went then.. 

Just symptomatic of how downhill so many of these things have become in a blatant money grab.

This is going to cost the government billions in free stuff and advertising just to get 25 percent of the Chinese back.  The more wealthy Chinese don’t travel in these groups-they set themselves up.  There are so many negatives now, it’s not looking good at all for Thailand

There were so many beautiful events for free. Unfortunately the lantern release was allowed only one day. But I enjoyed Loy Krathong a lot. This video I have taken with my phone: 500 dancing ladies and a beautiful parade.

But I understand the complaining Chinese. Someone thought he can make easy money with the Chinese and doesn´t expect that the Chinese go public.
