One of the principal reasons for the protests of course.

Thai people are not stupid as portrayed by most farang "experts" with questionable intentions in Thailand. Most of the time they are just not allowed to speak. 

Understatement of the year.🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

A bar owner feared that her already devastated business was heading for complete catastrophe.

Unfortunately a common cry for a lot of bar owners.

I think that if the protests at weekends in Bangkok become a fixture then people will come here in greater numbers to stay well away from them.

The protests in Pattaya have been relatively small by comparison and have not been disrupting transport and causing shopping malls to close like they have in the capital.

When they refer to "tourism" now - they are referring to Domestic Tourists (Thais), not foreign tourists who they already know are not going to be back any time soon.

Which is why there has been a drive on in recent weeks to increase Domestic tourism in an attempt to generate more business in that sector. It won't make up for the loss of the International tourism market, but could offset that loss to a degree and provide some additional employment for the hospitality industry (hotels, restaurants, etc).

I doubt Thai tourists would be going to this woman's bar or cancel their travel plans because of prorests.
