Recommended Posts

all part of the master plan...

 

chinese come from Wuhan in the MILLIONS.......lock down again!!!  

 

shhhhhhh:  Do you guys see the aliens walking on the street at midnight?????  NOOOOO... we are in lockdown, but I think there are aliens from another planet roaming Thailand as we are forced to stay in our room.

 

hello Mr. Wuhan....oh, party of 700, I see a few are coughing blood.... Oh, no tip....  OK, no problem, please I'll kick out those farangs now.

 

OK everyone, stay inside until the SICKEST country decides to visit us...and then we will let you go outside.  ?????????

 

China's numbers are certainly in the millions

The Asian Flu from China 1958, the Hong Kong Flu in 1959, Avian Flu, Sars, Swine Flu, the Wuhan Coronavirus 2019, (Call it be its real name). Sure...why not Thailand ! How about a billion more Chinese who don't spend squat there, tear up the roads with heavy busses, degrade the infrastructure, and pick their noses....What kind of mental giants are running the tourism in Thailand.

you forgot about destroying the Buffets by taking 6 to 7 plates each and then loading up there bags with more to take away....

What can one even say? Tourism is not returning to Thailand anytime soon. If you think about it, the group that comprised perhaps 60% of all arrivals (lower to middle income Chinese and Indians) are the ones who have been hardest hit by this idiotic worldwide economic shutdown. Tourism in Thailand will never recover to even close to it's former levels, and that leaves millions out of work. Most countries will still be required to have Covid letters, as the virus is still raging in many countries. And some countries will not issue that letter (impossible to get in the US). Plus, will the mandatory health insurance still be required? Will it be even stricter than before? And just what are people returning to, or coming to? Will everything be open? How about nightlife?

 

There are so many unanswered questions, it boggles the mind. One thing is for certain. Thailand will be feeling the effects of this for a very, very long time. So will the rest of the world. And rosy projections are just that. They are based on less than zero. 

Spidermike007,

Yes, I could not obtain the medical certificate required in March here in UK. Will the requirements for the wonderfull ? Chinese be more lenient.

China's numbers are actually in the sub-thousands.

 

Quite a feat when you consider eh?

Hope springs eternal. It's just so hard to distinguish from delusion sometimes, especially with Thai tourism officials.

Yes, they'll stay away from your 28sq m of it I'm sure.

 

Good news for Thailand, good news for China. Normality.

When you have to put up with every other vehicle being a tour bus chugging out black smoke or a tractor taking boats for Koh Larn with a decibel rate of about 150....you may understand why it would be nice if they don't return...January and February was actually quite busy without the Chinese, good atmosphere and feeling

I fear that you may be right about that. Whilst Thailand is celebrating that it is getting to the end of the virus the rest of the world is still in a mess. Thailand as always seems to be blinkered and thinks that we are all going to simply return to normal existence as soon as they declare all ok, ridiculous. Thailand needs to focus on the domestic economy as much as they can and say a prayer that one day tourism will recover to some extent. The news is good foe the locals who have been struggling so much, they can at least start fending for themselves again but relying on tourism to bring back the money is unbelievably stupid. stay safe everyone.

If hope when they arrive, that they are all ghetto'd into hotels full of Africans - "Remember the Guangzhou"
