I have just been walking around CM in the last few days and it was staggering as to how many businesses were closed . On any given street about half the businesses were closed and in some places,

Continuing to keep the people and businesses in a virus lockdown mode has to stop.    Give people the option to continue with their living and livelihood...this lockdown is causing more harm

Everyone can see now that the knee-jerk reactions to a bad cold are now much more harmful than the virus ever was.

My point was that the shops werent closed due to  lockdown orders .

(That would have been apparent , had you read the post I replied to )

Absolute cr&p.  The shops are shut because there are no tourists!   Go speak to Thai (ex) tourist business owners and their families.  My partner is one of them! Make your comment to her if you dare!

5% to 10% of the overall economy closing up does not a ghost town make.

Where did you get that figure from ?

Walking around and seeing , seems like its 50-90 % of businesses closed .

It may be less than that on the outskirts of the city , due to them being less reliant on tourists

Yes, that was my point , its the borders being closed that has caused the businesses to close, rather than lock-down measures (Which were lifted a few months ago)

Tourist related businesses and shops yes.

Hang Dong road was chocker today and Tesco Lotus, BigC and Makro were heaving.

Remember this is an extended holiday weekend (ex Songkran) so lots of locals out and about.

Good clear pictures. Shows that anywhere dependent on tourist traffic is really suffering.

 

And yet by contrast , county towns off the beaten tourist track are about 95% back to normal. Our local

Big C is busy , car park full on weekends and downtown is bustling with life. Fewer and fewer people bothering with masks except in the chain stores like 7/11 and Tescos etc. 

 

Why bother having a holiday elsewhere when home is so open to business.
