The title of "billion baht Indians" , this is the reference when people refer to "rich" or even "mega rich" Indians as people who have a Billion baht would be in that category.

Ah, we're back on the wine and handbags.

 

Well the Chinese buy hand bags and other luxury goods by the truckful. Just look at the tax reclaim queues in Siam for instance, almost exclusively Chinese. You see homegoing Chinese in the airport check-ins they've all got huge boxes that they didn't arrive with. Todays exclusive, low class Chinese holiday in China.

 

Wine? Pah! The Chinese dont go on holiday to buy imported wine. They can do that in China. Who would? You want a wine holiday go to a wine producing country. You know. coals to Newcastle and all that. Mohammed to the Mountain. 'Excuse me Waiter, do you have the Chateau Nong Khai 89 by any chance?'

 

Nonsense.

He always talk about want cheap wine.

Thailand have wine. To expensive, he like cheap wine.

If 1.95 million visitors spent a 'whopping' 1.1 billion baht, that works out at 564 baht each.

 

Do they just take a taxi at arrivals directly to departures?

The story from MCOT, thai language site.

 

it does not say “billion baht Indians”. Just the tricky Rooster say that to make reader think the thai say that. His headline.

 

the truth about the “billion baht” number come later.

 

“Led by commitee chief Tosserporn Sirisampan, MCOT said the group expects Indians to spend a whopping 1.1 billion baht in Thailand this year. 

They reckoned that 1.95 million visited in 2019.”

 

*MCOT didn’t say “whopping”. Just report the number. Tricky Rooster word “whopping” 

 

The MCOT report NOT say anything about “billion dollar Indians”, not mention rich Indians. Just want to try get more Indian tourist come visit Thailand.

 

Another tricky Rooster headline.

Thankyou explain. I know already.

 

But the billion baht number not talk about “Billionaire Indian”. Is the total.

With all the Thai-Indian 'Gheks' living here, did they bring some of them along to tell their Indian brothers and sisters about how great, lovely, fair and decent Thailand and Thais are??

 

 

 

 

😂

a couple live at my condo. Both young men are millionaires and drive Mercs. When asked about Thai attitudes towards them, they say it’s pure jealousy. I suppose Jews would understand this. 
anyway, looking forward to some nice Indian restaurants to open up, hopefully. Current lot on the nose!

Either my maths is wrong or thats a whole 500 baht per head............😉

 

If last years numbers are repeated

And that's for a week or so? Us expats must have an income of 65K per month. Who cares about tourists; bring in the expats. No, scare them away.

Less than 10% of Indians are muslim, pale, and only vegetarian when too poor for travelling to Thailand

I do wish people would check their facts before posting!  A simple check on Wiki reveals:-

 

"Islam is the second-largest religion in India, with 14.2% of the country's population or approx. 172 million people identifying as adherents of Islam (2011 census). It makes India the country with the largest Muslim population outside Muslim-majority countries."

 

And"pale" ??? And "only vegetarian when too poor for travelling to Thailand" Sorry, but this is gobbledygook! What on earth do  you mean?

Any tourist place in Thailand has Indian restaurant with Indian, nepali Or burmese chef. For muslims there are always halal options in these restaurants and other places.
