I guess there is a reason you call yourself "Oldie"...   I care because when things are good I like the atmosphere. Why should I order something online when I see online old photoshopped pro

This goes way beyond GO GO bars.  Everyday more and more regulations.  There are people, whom I can't name, that only care about power.  This isn't about safety, it's about tyranny at its heart.   W

You forgot the music and the girls!   I think you should try another section of TVF. Maybe rice farming or something like that. https://forum.thaivisa.com/forum/32-isaan-forum/

My father in law just told us last night, people are dying in his village from CV-19.

 

This is out in the boonies in Isaan, 40km from the nearest 7/11.

 

So to say there is no CV-19 cases?

 

Who in the Thai government is going around to Isaan and other rural places to check?

 

According to my father in law, no one.

 

A person has to ask themselves, if there really were zero cases, why the delay in re-opening the economy?

 

I suspect the gov't knows there are many cases or hasn't bothered to investigate the vast rural areas and suspects many cases.

Why the unfounded scaremongering, trying to justify your fear or what?

"Father in Law" living 40k from a 7/11, how did you find out, carrier pigeon?

I live in Isaan, would like to meet you FIL, can certainly tell a believable story 👍

How much do you want to bet that it's a self-righteous spinster wife, behind a cucked husband politician, that is making a lot of these decisions?

There is no such thing as a "spinster wife." Spinster means an unmarried woman, typically an older woman beyond the usual age for marriage.

In my view, things are looking bleak for the Thai nightlife industry, with very few customers in sight for what could be months to come. Even when tourists are able to return, will they have the money and will to do so? The industry has struggled for some years due to much higher and often unrealistic prices and a general turndown in attitude by bar staff of all kinds. Stickman has reported that at least one bar in Cowboy, in typical Thai-style, has actually raised prices upon re-opening. Unbelievable.

 

Now, this long closure could well be the final nail in its coffin. In recent times the girls have increasingly been turning to social media to meet ‘friends’, rather than spend many mind-numbing hours dancing in the bars hoping to catch someone’s eye. With bars closed, they have been forced to turn exclusively to their phones to find company, and one wonders how many will now return to the bars even when they are allowed to. Especially, as the OP says, the number of lady drinks they will receive will be way down with the resulting loss of wages.

Which one has raised prices? I'm very familiar with Soi Cowboy.

You have much too much time on your hands for things that don't matter.

Have you actually read your own sh.ite ?

Yes for farang sex tourists, adulters and losers who never seem to catch on that most of the girls actualy despise them.

You seriously think that ordinary tourists never go to them.? Or ordinary people, come to that. 

They are part of what makes Thailand different, and nobody is forced to go. 

You wil have the place as interesting as Warrington New Town.

About the Indians (or what I think are Indians): It seems many of them like to look at girls but spend almost nothing. As far as I know that is the reason why they are not welcome in many bars. 

Same when I lived in Durban, South Africa, strip clubs would not let them in. Or ask an unrealistic entrance fee.

Those customer counts remind me of weeknights back in the early and mid 90's! Fond memories indeed. Unless there is a vaccine soon and Thailand fully opens up, many if not most, of those establishments are doomed. Many other businesses too.

Walker 88 post #94, pretty much says it all. Don't want to repeatit as it's a long post, but very accurate and very interesting.

Tilac raised prices, 190 a beer? I know Baccara was 190 on 14/03/2020.

So I've read. That's nearly a fiver for what I assume is a bottle. Jack Daniels is 195 and a 15 baht cola is 160.
