Pattaya business owners, led by the Chonburi Tourism Council, present a letter to Mayor Sonthaya Kunplome for an extension of relief measures for the tourism industry.

 

Pattaya business owners appealed for more financial aid to survive the coronavirus pandemic.

 

The coalition of industry groups led by the Chonburi Tourism Council presented a letter to Mayor Sonthaya Kunplome at a May 29 meeting on extension of relief measures for the tourism industry.
 

The business groups said that while Thailand has begun to relax its Covid-19 lockdown, the tourism sector will continue to hurt for months until foreign tourists are allowed back into the country.

If the correct business model is one that sells to the clients it has and not to the clients it wants...

Then right now, the correct business model is one that caters to ghosts! 👻

"Months" is the optimistic viewpoint.
Now is the perfect time for them to make the changes that the city has needed for years, but arguing, corruption, ineptitude and indifference by the stakeholders will put a stop to it.
Everyone in the tourist industry bleats about bringing wealthy tourists here for repeat visits, and yet there has never been one proposal on how to do it.

One idea ( I know it will never work for all the obvious reasons ) , allow casinos. How and why ?

 

1. They attract a better class of hooligan, one with more money.

2. They come back, at all times of the year. Get's away from "high season".

3. Initially the Council sells licences to the big international hotels already here. The casinos are controlled and heavily taxed, this money can then be siphoned off used the promote other initiatives. Phase two attract international corporations and build new venues

4. Locals pay entrance fee, as they do in Singapore. Keep it elitist, don't go to hell as Sihanoukville, Cambodia did with the cheap Chinese Charlies.

5. Police come down hard for once on the dozens of existing back street dens, with fines and seizures. No right minded punter goes to these as they are dangerous, only pay fees to you-know-who and only have the welfare of the owners in mind.

 

Anyway enough of dreaming, back to reality

Girlfriend has lost her job in Bangkok. 1 other is walking away from clothing unit in MBK that she has owned for a number of years.

Her friend has lost her job in mobile phone shop in MBK. Lady boss is closing for good.

Thailand better get it's act together are the economy and tourism is going to be destroyed.

I don't know what planet posters on this forum live on. They certainly haven't a clue.

Having actually been to Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Marina Bay Sands and Macau, i can tell you that if you want smoked filled rooms with compulsive gamblers then the Chinese are your demographic.

The expats on this forum would be heading out of Pattaya in droves.

The word is that Asian MotoGP events have been cancelled until at least mid-Nov.

Today, under controlled conditions, snooker, horse racing and even pidgeon racing are restarting in the UK.

Good luck to Thailand and Asia, they are themselves alone.

F*** dirty farangs we don't want you here.

I won't forget it in my future dealings with them.
