The European tourist will return when Thai Bahts come down to normal rate, and when the Thais get control with all the burnings so they came breathe clean air. Times have changed.

The message was clear: Europeans are not coming as much as in the past. 

And nothing is being done to solicit their return.  Actually the converse is true from continuing to downplay the positives of encouraging Europeans to vacation in Thailand (see any free visa programs like those offered to Chinese and Indians?  No.) right up to having the Health Minister publicly badmouth Europeans in a racist-fill, televised rant of epic proportions. 
"...and the 'da*n farang' Europeans are not coming as much as in the past.  Typical 'da*n farang tourist who we don't want in our country anyway.  But if they come they better get their masks on! But we don't know why they don't want to come to visit.  Let's have another meeting next month."

The bill comes due.

 

Twenty years, since 97 meltdown,  when Farangs were used as part of Thai nationalist politics; As in to blame things on. They turned it on and never turned it off. In the aftermath of 97 Westerners were blamed for 

A) the meltdown as a nefarious economic plot to take over the country  & then 

B) disrespecting Thailand

Since then, whether leadership was clad in red, yellow or green colours, no one has turned it off. It was too convenient to have a readymade scapegoat. ANd they still kept coming. For many years, a great laugh as they smirked about teflon Thailand. Nothing sticks; 'Treat them like <deleted> and they keep coming back'.

 

Finally as it always does, the bill eventually came due. Western countries are of the opinion Thailand is unsafe and not friendly. Going to take many years to convince them otherwise. That is besides baht to euro, dollar, or pound, exchange rate.

 

Not a problem if you are going to replace them with the Chinese. That said better make sure that works, because now all your eggs are in one basket.
