Maybe the government should give all those people out of a job the chance to make some money and give them a job to clean up all the beaches and areas around the beaches and a lot of other areas where building sites are leaving all there [email protected]#T laying around everywhere .

you must be from a sh*thole place in the US. Have you had to ever call the police in Thailand? 

    Actually it was northern Virginia outside of Washington, DC--one of the most expensive areas of the US.  Never had to call the police in Thailand as I have never had a need to.

If Thailand wants to avoid a serious infection wave then they should keep most European tourists out. I'm stuck in Austria which got a grip on things early and avoided high infection rates because people were disciplined. With bit by bit opening too many think the virus has gone away. Too many ignore rules which are still in place, like no masks in public transport, shops, no distancing. 

Does Thailand want tourists with this attitude?

I think they are wishing on a dream. Once the borders are open we ARE going to get new cases being imported, so their goes the trust, and many tourists will be put off by the extreme measures they will probably need to comply with. Add to that many around the world are broke right now so traveling is a low item on the shopping list so any resumption in tourism is likely  to be painfully slow.

Many are indeed broke round the world, and apart from holidays being low down on their list of prioirities, I think the price of air travel is going to escalate, leaving many no choice but to have "stay at home" holidays.

 

A friend of mine, who is married to a Thai lady, but they both live and work in England, has come to Thailand every year (at the same time of year) for his holidays since he met his wife about 15 years ago. He is probably not coming next year as the fare   on his favourite airline has already gone up by 300 pounds.

No one will go there as no country trusts the lies about their figures (apart from China where their lies are just as bad).

 

If you do go there expect a 2 week quarantine when you get back. 1 week in Thailand equals 3 weeks of holiday time from your company. No furlough pay for this.

 

The Thai government have a very limited though process if they think anyone will believe their BS that they are a modern day Shangri La.

 

No country will undertake a strict lockdown only for a group of brain-dead tourists returning from from Thailand to set it all off again.

 

Whoever thought that by lying about the figures would make the tourist come back is living in Cuckoo land. It will have the opposite effect. Maybe the stupid will want to go but that quarantine on the return will knock the thought straight out of their head.

 

They can cry all they like that they are virus free but no normal government believes a word of it.

 

Perhaps they should target Madagascar and offer complimentary bottles of Covid-Organics (with free lollipops for the kids). 

 

Madagascar's education minister has been fired over plans to order more than $2m (£1.6m) worth of lollipops for schoolchildren to mask the bitter taste of Covid-Organics

How about having Anutin stationed at Swampy, in a dunk tank, begging all incoming tourist to forgive him for the dirty smelly farang comments? Those who can dunk him get free taxi to their hotel.

        Good idea.

      Self isolate for 14 days in hotel , not good idea.

 

   I wont be flying for a loong time .

The Big Bird , has flu .

The Thais can say what they want. Every country that has a tourist trade will be badly hit this year. Next year will be better in Europe as the people out of work get decent benefits/help. Not sure about Asian countries as there is now huge poverty. One thing is sure, holiday makers will not be throwing their money around.

This same article is now running in Yahoo! News, the liberal media clearinghouse.  You should see the comments section--all negative.  Americans know what the real Thailand has become...
