I guess we should all trust Trump.

It will go away - eventually.

In theory he will be right - eventually.

Better if he will go away - eventually.  Like November 3rd?.

Doubt it. 

 

One other country have vested interests in Thailand. They are placing in puppet leaders across the continent, removing any that are against them (see Malaysia). It's a modern day empire. 

 

Welcome to the United States of China

Agree. Thailand has become a vassal state of China under the Junta and when China says jump the Junta say how high.

I don't follow Malaysian politics, but their leader, an ageing old figure, was coming on the BBC news saying he was going to stop China's proxy inexaction of Malaysia, and stop their hand in every single sector. I thought back then he is going to be in trouble soon.

 

Cue a few days ago i turn on the news, and he is out of power, and on corruption charges.

 

It's obvious what is going on in SE Asia. Puppet governments for China.

I am not a tourist in Thailand but sometimes I am a tourist in other countries.

 

Obviously from the point of view of tourists, me included, it's nice when everything is easy. Visa on arrival, stay for a long time, no conditions, perfect.

But I don't blame countries when they think about what they want and if they have certain conditions. I.e. the health insurance. We read often enough about people who can't pay their hospital bills. And GoFundMe requests for paying hospital bills. Hospitals are often expensive and they want to get paid for their services. Who pays?

 

Every tourist has the choice to think where he wants to go on holiday, compare visa regulations, etc. Select the country which is suitable for you.

And in case you live here then you are not really a tourist so you should have a visa to live here long term.

 

And last but not least: Thailand is easy compared to many other countries. Let a Thai person apply for a visa to Europe or the USA, etc. That is a lot more difficult and often impossible because "back home" governments make it clear who they want and who they don't want.

Actually you are a tourist.

Maybe you have lived in Thailand 15 years with a retirement visa, but you are classed by the Thai Govt and Immigration as an just a long stay tourist.

Each year you have to do the paperwork and have money in bank to obtain your visa....but they could just say no and off you go leave the country.

 

Please dont comment on here as thou you was born in Thailand. Always refer to yourself as a tourist when trying to comment or advise fellow forum members.

 

Thanks

Do you know the words "work" and "work-permit"?

And have you ever heard of business visa?

Now if you combine that knowledge with reading my comments then you should figure out that I work here and have a business visa which is not the same as a tourist.

 

Please don't comment on here if you don't know what you are talking about and don't assume things which you don't know.

December 2020 is when they start to realise the economy is in serious trouble.   By February Thai's will be asking how do you spell 'recession' in English! 

I am not sure it will take as long as February, the A.R.S.E. has already fallen out f the economy.

Where do you go for holiday?

To places which you know and you like(d)?

Or to new places which might be interesting?

Obviously it's nice to discover new places. But I am sure many will remember their good times in Thailand and return - eventually. 

Both.

Places I know, because I know them means a more relaxing time because you know at least some of the ropes and  the good, the bad , the to be avoided. Especially if  you have young kids in tow. Which a long time ago I did and we spent several summers going to the same rental at Rock, Camel Estuary, Cornwall, right on the beach

 

New places because it's much more of an adventure, more highs, perhaps more lows. 

 

Lots of places I've been once and would love to go again to deepen my experience but haven't as new places call.

Of course it will return.  Asians will be back in droves and a sprinkling of salt (white guys).

The government will do need to do a lot than they are now to save the economy and the country, and before December.

No tourists and a overvalued Baht are destroying the country.

What do you expect?

What would happen if you have a heart attack and have to go into a hospital. A few days, an operation or two, and that cost real money. Do you have that money ready? And if not, who should pay it? The Thai tax payers?

 

It's easy to understand that you want to come here. But look at it from the Thai point of view. What is the advantage for Thailand to let you in without insurance and maybe without quarantine?

They have a point; if the cost of travel/health insurance is that excessive. Pretty sure Thais won't have to fork out such silly sums to insure when visiting western nations, and if they have the appropriate paperwork, can buy land, vote etc.
