Government considering extending Songkran holidays to lift economy

Recommended Posts

Times are tough.  So what do we do? Party, Party, Party!  P!zz off some tourists who are not into days upon days of this unregulated nonsense.  It's like crazy youth during Spring Break at Daytona Beach in Florida, USA. 

 

Oh, and extend tourism by Thais who can't get back to where they belong. Keep the traffic on the roads as long as possible.  This Deputy Prime Minister is some kid.  Grow up.

Is this the same government that was just telling its citizens to save water ? You just know that any wells will now run dry due to 'festivities'

Are the thai government thst stupid that the chance of Songkran will entice people back during the Coronavirus scare. It would be like playing Tig with a virus involved. Maybe they want to be held culpable for the highest victims outside china

     Please, NO.  The madness already seems to last most of the month in Pattaya.  Thailand already has way too many holidays.  Stop taking the easy way out and, for once, do some real thinking, and some real planning, and come up with some new, innovative ideas to stimulate tourism and the economy.  Do some work, for a change.

The government might extend the Songkran festival to stimulate the national economy.

Well, you have to explain this to me, people don't have money, to make money they have to work, how can they make a longer vacation without money!
Tip: eliminate the Songkran, huge saving of resources (water, petrol and alkohol)!

I like it... It is the "Party all the time" economic model.

I don't buy this nonsense that Songkran will deplete water resources.  They will just use klong water that is unfit for any purpose other than putting out fires if they can't get it from the tap. Suck it out of the Chao Praya river, so maybe the water will flow to the sea and prevent salt water from coming up river.  (Er, oops!  It comes back up if you create a hole in the water.  Guess again.)

Creating a shopping atmosphere is expected to help the economy which faces many economic risk factors such as the outbreak of the new coronavirus, drought, delay in implementing the budget, including the Korat mass shootings in Nakhon Ratchasima, which have had a huge impact on businesses and the tourism industry.

Strange, you are very good at blaming other events for the failure of your policy, now you already have two reasons to explain why tourism is so declining, CORONA VIRUS and the SHOOTER IN KORAT!
When will you be ready to take your responsibilities?

I think other comments here have got it right. For me, it means there are two more days I won't venture on the roads, only for my usual local shopping.

TouristS still won't come. Dirty water is bad enough, but now it will carry the virus.
