Send the bill to your mates in Beijing.  They let the Wuhan China virus out so they can make restitution to every country effected.  

For some reason, I'm not feeling it for the Phuket tuk-tuk mafia and their families, you know the ones who want B200 to go a kilometer down the road...and if you have the temerity to negotiate tell yo

It was the paranoid reaction of the government to the pandemic rather than the pandemic itself which caused these 1.57 trillion losses to Thai tourism.    Instead of gradually opening the co

The army could not have possibly picked a worse time to show their extreme desperation and fear of losing their power.

People in power are so stupid , they have never get any education to rule nation and normal financial element's! They don't know nothing about health care, education, business . Only know how to count money in own pocket!

They flush this coundry down to drain.

China is emerging from Covid smelling like a rose. Their economy will likely outperform all other major nations this year. Thailand is hopelessly mired in inertia. Fear and paranoia rules the day. Tourism will remain decimated for years to come. When you disappear for long enough, you are easily forgotten. 

 

Unfortunately, the US has an utter incompetent at the helm. Guys like Xi, Kim, Putin and other world leaders outclass him by 50-80 IQ points. He does not stand a chance. And his sledgehammer technique could never work with China. He got knocked out one minute into the first round, by Xi. Knocked out cold. Did not even know what hit him. 

 

Contrary to the self created myth, Trump can barely negotiate his way out of a paper bag. Just think of how many have gotten over on him, and taken advantage of his lack of skill and prowess, in the past few years. Now, the leaked tax returns paint the rest of the sorry picture. 17 major business failures! Possibly a record. And financial losses for decades. Unless he is lying to the IRS too. Very possible. To have a man so incompetent in business leading the nation is dangerous. 

The alternative, Joe Biden is worried about "another 4 years of George, er, George..." God help the US and the world. Us Brits could do with a much better leader too.

If you over 50 get an OA.. Yes you need to do some things, do them.. Maybe you have to go to your home country to apply, go there. 

This is what I mean by howling retirees.. You have a route, you just dont want to be asked to comply, you want it on your terms. 

Another retiree who was vocally slagging the application process in social media groups and 'idiot Thais', and broken systems, he had done everything as requested etc.. I ended up taking on his COE application for him. Nothing was correctly uploaded, images illegible low res phone pictures, an email from an insurance agent uploaded instead of his policy docs. Of course he was being rejected and yet he didnt even understand why (he thought it was his visa, it wasnt) and was another one of those voices you would read and get the idea the COE system is a mess (it isnt), when I start asking him turns out he was telling his Thai wife, who didnt have a computer, to upload things from Thailand.. Just totally his end and not Thailands. I took over his application, tidied and reformatted all his docs, uploaded in correct order and places, COE instantly given. He flew last week. 

There is no shortage of flights now, there is no shortage of ASQ now, theres many many classes of visa eligible to return, really its only the under 50 tourist with no connection to the country and wont spend 500k, which doesnt yet have a route.

What exactly do you want Thailand to do ?? 

I've got no issues with Thailand and their policies.  My issue was excessive delays before over getting all OAs back (I've always been OA) when stranded for so long.  

Elderly folk have tech problems.  Like my mum, she struggles and has cognitive decline normal with age.  So albeit incredibly frustrating at times, need to respect the older folk IMO.  Maybe they need some agents to help them complete the process.  Enough said. Thx.

Maybe Thailand isnt the place for older folks, with cognitive decline. Consider it an entry test. 

What possible reason would Thailand want to attract that sector ?? High spenders ?? Big earners ??
