You must be joking. The last coup was supposed to be the final nail. And the red yellow shirt wars with bombs, shopping malls on fire, murders, tanks and the shut down of swampy was absolutely and defiantly the last nail..Damn that coffin is pure lead

Betting on what wrong horse? Thailand cant force Chinese to come any more than force the Russians. Those that will come will come.

 

Im in Pattaya and its still busy and no I dont live here. Sure there is a downturn just like in Vietnam and Cambodia . To be expected under the circumstances 

 

Exactly this.

 

We may want the Chinese to stop coming. But oh boy, they will be back.

Human logic.

Come to Pattaya on holiday and rent a motorbike.  60 traffic fatalities a day, 80% of those motorcycles, plus another couple hundred hospitalized from vehicular accidents per day. 

Cancel a trip to Thailand because CoVid 19 has infected 34 people out of 39 million and no fatalities  

 

One you control, the other is out of your controls.

Well I hope so. The baht is ridiculously overpriced. We need to see this country suffer an economic collapse so that it can rebuild itself into a better one at a slower pace. I really do feel for the local business owners but the way the country has operated in the last 20 years it is just not sustainable.  

And do pray tell based on the previous collapse of the baht will be different after your predicted collapse this time? Nothing right? The only reason foreigners here want the baht to collapse is so they can afford to live here (perhaps not you) and see their home currency go further not so much about concern over Thailand. I wonder how the man in the street at the start of the industrial revolution saw the world going? The problem with this planet is not how strong or weak your currency is, but rather human kind is now proliferating quicker than the Coronavirus and consuming the planet at an unsustainable rate. At the turn of the last century (1900) the worlds population was 1.6 billion it’s now 7.8 billion so that’s 6.2 billion more people in almost 120 years. That’s almost 4 times as many as there were in 1900. This is very interesting:

totally understable as health before entertainment and leisure. any sane person will exercise due caution and forego non essential travel. the whole world is impacted, of course some countries more than others, but we have to rough it out in these hard times. may racketeers some time think over their unscrupulous behaviour (tuk tuk n taxi drivers in particular, who always want to cherry pick fares, rejecting some rides).

Yes I guess the Hotels would have been fully booked this time of the year so likely they still have income even if they're half empty.

If hotels are refusing to refund, then they won't be surprised when, after this virus is finally eradicated, that many tourists will have spread the word about refund refusals and they will have even less customers than before to occupy their hotels!

It’s a great time to travel. No queues, no waiting, no problem.

A lot like here when a person involved in a vehicle accident and subsequently dies in hospital is not counted as a death from the accident.

 

FYI is the same in the US since they forced the 55mph federal speed limit to save fuel many years ago.   They did so to support the limit by showing a reduction in traffic accidents.    Same BS everywhere.

The tuk tuk driver should remember what the tuk tuk means in Thai and maybe some of the locals may use his service ( tuk tuk = cheap ) only tourists are conned into using tuk tuks.
