all hail Winnie the Pooh, you can betcha the uighurs in nazi concentration camps would prefer western neoliberalism to ccp control and capture

i'm not thrilled neither by neoliberalism nor neostalinism
but I bet there was a reason Uighurs were recognized as

the fifth column capable of destabilizing mainland with

the help of foreign powers.


*And the camps were German, there is no such nationality as "Nazi"

 

Correctly is "German style concentration camps" in this context.

Just so I'm clear, this weeks knee-jerk plan has reverted back to quantity of tourist rather than quality of tourist ?

Hardly knee-jerk, as all countries are continually creating new promotions. Thailand doesn't have to stop having any of its own lest TVF members decry them as "desperation." And then it turned out the quantity is also of better quality.🙂The previous "quality" is skint anyway and watching a lot of porn. Oh, well.

If there's one nationality that probably won't benefit from mutiple entry visas it's the Chinese. Yes, I know there are a few exceptions but the vast majority of Chinese only travel for five days at a time and spend that time at one or two centres and very few are repeat tourists.

 But a minority of 2 billion still amounts to a considerable number, you see--and even without repeats. The new promotion is only for the long New Year holiday during which Chinese factories are closed 2 - 4 weeks.

 

So, not a bad idea, overall. If successful, could lead to another next year or even an extension.

It hasn't reverted back anywhere; it's still all about money and tbe number of tourist arrivals.

That was the delusion, but it never really happened.  What happened was just fewer people showed up.  Today, they are looking at quantity, as that is where a business actually makes money.  Thai government still thinks it can lure whales away from Macau to come to Thailand by showing pictures of beaches, rubbing of amulets and chanting amazing Thailand.   Five years of military rules has made Thailand dull.

In a West in perennial economic and financial crisis, because it is stubborn with the nihilistic and materialistic ideology of Neoliberalism, it is committing suicide with its own hands.

The West does not have "perennial economic and financial crisis". The West consists of developed economies that can never achieve the growth rate of developing economies.

Look at China. It started it's meteoric economic development adopting the capitalist principles the West's economic systems are built on. As it catches up to the West the growth rate slows down and in the will be more or less equal to that of the West.

As for the "because it is stubborn with the nihilistic and materialistic ideology of Neoliberalism" mumbo jumbo it's hard to figure out what it even means. Suffice to say that all countries who have achieved/are achieving rapid economic growth have done so using the West's capitalist principles.

I agree.

But even it is as what you said, it seems they are hoping for repeat visits.

 

What it does, though, it sets a certain message. Even more westerners will stay away. Why should I put up with busloads of Chinese, wars at every public spot, etc.? I think I will turn to other beautiful destinations.

Secondly, as we all know Chinese tend to favour Chinese owned hotels and restaurants. It's the same in other destinations in Asia. So why? Does anyone know?

I am not sure i understand why 'normal' chinese tourists need multiple entry visas? They come here by group tours or with family, stay much less then 30 days to go back home and start working again.

The only people benefitting from this are possible long stayers and more scammers. In the meantime (farang) real spenders are being refused by the dozens.

Because farang have wrong nationality lol
