I guess their trip to China wooing Chinese didn't went as expected, let's try India and next month they will try billion baht Bangladesh 555

TAT have been targeting India for some time.  Obvious really as after China they have the fastest growing economy in the world.  But they are not alone with this strategy.  Many countries are doing the same including the UK.  It is just sound business sense.

This will backfire, knowing the Thais love for darker skinned gentlemen from South Asia and the Middle East ............

A large delegation of enthusiastic officials from the Tourism Authority of Thailand are once again trying to woo  Indians into visiting Thailand. 

A large group o TAT dreamers ...
I am sure that if you don't dream big, you have no chance to work for TAT!
You already have so many problems with your Chinese cousins, expect immense problems with the Indians!

don't know why mega rich Indians would even consider Thailand as a go to place when there are so many more beautiful (not in drought conditions) places they can go to and probably safer as well .

What status is there for a mega rich Indian or for that matter a mega rich anyoone coming to Bangkok or Pattaya-  horrid pollution;  traffic jams;  very poor high end shopping and  restaurants that cannot even  find a bottle of wine that is on the menu.

 

Throw in a surly attitude toward Indians at Immigration and just about everywhere and they go elsewhere.  Mostly shopping at Rodeo Driver in Los Angeles; high end stores in London; the French Riviera and Monaco.

 

Just because you build it- doesnt mean anyone will come.  You got to have good players.

 

TAT would be much better off sitting down with  a group of long stayers and asking  for comments on why people don't come to Thailand anymore and how to fix it. They won't do it - because they can't handle the truth!!

They refused to allow the Chinese tourists to use their own (Chinese speaking) tourist guides.  The police slapped a Chines tourist in the face at the airport. Many Chinese have been scammed and report it back home on social media.  Etc.  And TAT wonders why they stopped coming.

 

The latest move sounds like pure desperation.

 

As a "foreigner" that pays taxes, has made major investments and has lived here for over 12 years, I no longer feel welcome.

 

Oh well, "Thailand is for Thais" and that is how it will end up.  Good luck with it.

Indian tourists are well known for their extravagant spending habits and their dislike of bartering. This should work!
