It is not just the virus keeping tourists away the strong baht (despite weakening marginally) is still a major factor in low tourist numbers , the Government has done and is doing far to little to late to encourage a change in numbers .

 

Despite this there is 28 members from my old golf club in Aus who are coming for their annual Thai golf tournament in Pattaya and most are big spenders/drinkers .

That's What I Said ^^^^^^^^^ Keith !!

soon expats will wake up to the fact that you will have to choose which country you want to be in.

because going home will not be a option for at least six months.

Funny, Chinese don´t complain about the Baht and come in masses (if there is no virus). Only westerns are whining.

If you pay most of your trip at home in your local currency you won't have to complain about an overinflated currency.
