Thailand's December foreign tourist arrivals up 2.48% year-on-year - ministry

Recommended Posts

Look at the bright side. Should TAT finally decide to give real tourist numbers. They now have the perfect excuse and can give real quotes without loss of face. Just blame it on the virus.

It appears no one really has any idea if tourism is up or down.  Best to stop reporting it so they don't appear more stupid than they are.  Import more Chinese to ensure the spread of coronavirus!

For the last 1000000 years, business owners complain about business.  Down 90%, 100%, 1000%....they say these things to get sympathy and business.  Very common.  Which is why I never believe such garbage.  And most people with bad jobs only see the negatives anyhow....even hotel owners cry to me if they have one bad night in a month.  "oh, what is wrong, we may never get another customer!!"

 

I'm woke.  

 

next year, because of the corona virus, tourist numbers down 99.9999%

It's going to nosedive shortly no inquiries, no bookings and cancellations I see one poster on here said she has cancelled all Chinese bookings and not accepting any bookings from China

Where I am staying in Jomtien Beach, the guest house has a one day, busy spike because

of Chinese New Year, tonight it will be quiet again. they were less than 50 percent full,

when I checked in a few days ago. most restaurants were no reservation required as not

at all busy. Only some sections of the beach have tourists, some others dead. TAT is not

to be bevieved.

Geezer

On the dark side, good guess ? may as well be in a remote village. <deleted> all to see there. Most expats are pretty desperate on the outskirts trying to scratching out a living. And all brag about not been to walking st or beach rd etc for years which of course is the tourist area..over to you ..where?

It's in line with the 4.5% increase in international arrivals. Where are they going though ? According to many TV posters koh samui, pukhet and pattaya are half empty

Sure as eggs are eggs they’ll be down next month...
