...and the usual Thai weekend crowd! With the beach football championships ongoing it was as busy as it ever gets down there on Sunday afternoon.

Jomtien, for better or worse, is a land unto its own.  Rules of tourism do not apply here.

Thailand put all it's eggs in one basket (Chinese tourists) but then failed to watch that basket closely.

Lots of Russians here in Jomtien, for what that's worth...

BTW how do you tell a "lonely speedboat" from run of the mill speedboat? Other examples of this silly sort of creative writing reject style in article

Took me ages to get down soi Buakhao early afternoon yesterday, it was packed! All the fuss about soi 7 and 8 is misplaced, it has been desolate long before any yellow peril.

Many farangs love to pronounce, THE END!!  I don't know why, since they live there; however, their misery must have company.  The baht is still relatively strong, no panic yet.  I just want to be with these farangs during their last few weeks....I'm sure they will regret all their negativism.  

 

For me, i'm not that old so I don't care if 1 billion or 0 people come here.  I'm not on a retirement visa.  We need new threads, "Pattaya end of days."  Probably posts dating back to 1700 BC.  Then we need the "Thailand Apocalypse coming".  1 zillion pages.  

 

This virus is certainly a BLACK SWAN, no question.  But this swan isn't changing our life habits.  not yet.   Gold at 10,000....20,000....let's first wait for 2,000.  

Have you noticed a difference in the western tourist numbers in recent times, particularly before the virus outbreak? 

 

Would you say western tourist numbers were up, down, or equal, to last season, and would yo then say they are up, down, or equal, to 3 years ago?

Fake news, this pic must have been taken early morning. All I see are hordes of Indians spending (I,m told) 10,000 Bht per day 🙂

Guide Kritthisak Kanlomsumaso, 45, said it was terrible for him and other guides. Many had just gone home as there was nothing to do. 

 

Businesses like restaurants that cater to Chinese tour groups were paying staff half wages. 

 

Some had sent their staff home for a month as well. 

 

Hotels that cater to the Chinese were all but empty. 

I am sorry to say, but Som Nom Na Thai people.

 

One gets what ones sows, and all that. 😞
