He hinted that the government had plans for the baht and stimulus measures to lure foreign tourists. He promised a "new group" of tourists, more domestic tourism and sustainable tourism. 

How can you promise? Want to go get the tourists personally?
Begin to understand, if you don't change course 180 degrees, no tourist will come!

These people better wake up.

It was never all about the baht! Read my lips....NEVER about the BAHT

 

You think for instance an American is going to change vacation destination because now he only gets

30 baht for a dollar instead of 31-32-33??? Heck no !

 

Instead look at all the bad press Thailand has gotten

Start with a Military Junta/Seudo elected govt

 

Next add onerous immigration

Then look at things like visiting Thailand is dangerous to your health

60 dead per day on roads is not very enticing is it?

The list goes on & on  it is a cause & effect now in motion that will take years to clear

 

Because as this gets worse regular Thai's sellers/businesses get depressed / economically stressed

There goes the land of smiles

 

Next as folks move off to find better vacation spots they do not instantly come back because now you get 32 instead of 30 baht to a dollar

Instead they have already booked next years get away & will only return when they read once again favorable reviews from reliable sources

that Thailand is once again a nice vacation spot

 

The imbeciles confuse tourists with expats. Expats care most about income conversion to Baht tourist are tourist aka: two week millionaires

I cannot believe those in charge do not know this

 

Lastly do not forget there are still many folks in the world who will never support a Seudo govt like this no matter how good the

deal is

 

Hit the nail straight on the head.  Cost of flights from bkk don’t help either.

I hope we see clarification and finessing of the laws concerning holiday rentals. That is a huge and growing potential for sustainable Thai tourism in itself.

Breaking the airport monopoly might help too. Currently a domestic flight to /from Bkk is dearer than from say London to new York. No idiot wants to pay that!

 

Pray tell, can you give us the figures for ticket from London to New York and compare that with domestic flight?

What's stopping you doing it yourself?

Seems they could more easily lower the Baht (by slowing hot money bond sales and or lowering interest rates again), than fix all of their other problems that drive tourists away.
