The  whole country is suffering under the current administration, whose performance is the reason for the protests. Bring in real democracy and the country and economy will flourish.

Your avin a laff sunshine, your dopey mob were strangling tourism here long before the virus/ protests. Just a case of blame anybody/ anything but yourselves for destroying tourism here.

Nothing escapes this man!

Relating to the original post, it would seem to me that the decimation of tourism has not been caused by the "pandemic", but by the ridiculous over reactive regulations caused by the media spin on it 😞

Really? 

 

And those countries with "real democracy" are doing so fantastically well with their economies and social environments, law and order etc, are they?

So instead of crying you have or should have the brain and ability to act about it to solve this economy suffering, then why don’t you act? What’s the point of that? You wait until it’s too late.

If you believe strict regulations (air travel, border entry, limited, quarantine on entry) and public compliance (masks, social distancing) resulted in allegedly low Covid infections/deaths: then, do you applaud the government for choosing public health over tourism ... or, do you condemn it ? 

 

I see the deflation (deflowering ?) of the tourism sector's massive economic input as a kind of a spotlight highlighting the increasingly salient/vivid/limnal long term problems with environmental degradation, corruption, educational quality, infrastructure, concentration of wealth, inequality in the rule of law, etc.

 

Well, guess what: COMBL (Corporate Occupied MallBurger Land, aka "USA"), where I come from, has most of the  same issues. Would you like a megalomaniac paranoid dictator wanna-be, like Trump, in charge of the Land of Smiles ?

Maybe if you get a party like future forward (disolved) to rule the country. But if its the old parties there will be more of the same corruption and incompetence. Sure this goverment is bad and should bo. But the democratic governments were riddled with corruption and incompetence too.

The words "frying pan" and "fire" come to mind.

Your right, they keep throwing sh-t against the wall seeing if people will like it, but in the end they do nothing. Every country that relies on tourism is having trouble world wide. I know this is going to be hard but try other ways of helping Thailand. This virus is not going to last that long with a whole range of vaccines coming out soon[just make sure we have a choice] so than you can start the ball rolling again.

Few years ago 

Was problems with red a yellow t shirts demonstrations 

Back then 

Government offerd free 2 month tourist visa 

I recived it in 2 days easy a i went to Bangkok 

Now they offer a totally redicilos offer that hardly anybody will go for it 

Even if they really want to get there 

Those demonstration are for the Thai people 

Nothing to do with forigner 

A people can be there in safe places 

Maybe Thailand should reconsider their visa offer to finally get the tourist to come there... 

With this STV visa nobody running to Thailand

Chairat Trairatanajarasporn noted that the pandemic had already decimated foreign tourism.

I beg to differ Kuhn Chairat, it’s clearly the government’s policies that have decimated foreign tourism! These days poor old Covid gets blamed for everyone’s ineptitude.

But if the Baht drops as a consequence, maybe it could benefit the tourism? 

Not if there are no tourists because of a "political unrest" label Thailand gets because of the protests.
