Thai tourist arrivals to plunge 80% this year - industry body

Recommended Posts

They're lucky they got 3 months of peak season in this year to massage the figures.

The year 2020, when a 80% downturn looked like it might be too optimistic.

I believe, from a previous report, that the "touristic" year  was counted from Sep-Sep, which would encompass much of the high season from 2019.

Well at least people are finally wrapping their heads around the "there will be no tourism this year" scenario.  

In order to get tourism you must 1)  Open.  2)  Have people willing to come for a vacation.  

1 or 2 is not happening.  2 does not count for a few hundred old men coming to find their "lover".

A rather odd statement -  You believe the people of Thailand deserve to fail go hungry?

 

What exactly is it that you don’t have any sympathy for? the country itself is a piece of rock, earth and coastline.

Why  oh  why is there  this imperative  need  to keep announcing the obvious?

Is there an internal competition for a proposed  portfolio  for  "Non Existing  Tourist " Minister?

Why so negative with the old man rant?

Well, yeah, the full economic effect has yet to even be realized in Thailand. Unfortunately for the working class, their well being is of little concern. The months leading up to "high season" will emphasize on arrivals paying up at the gate, directly to the coffers.
