Going Down: Businesses on Phuket’s famed Bangla Rd suffer as clientele dries up

Recommended Posts

Even as we speak, prices are going up in Soi Cowboy. Yet, I hear the girls complaining that it is quiet. My personal response to the higher prices is to go less often.

When the mamasan tells me I have not been in much, I say too expensive now. I doubt she got my point.

Yup, I hear 2,000 Baht bar fines in some bars fronting Bangla. Says all you need to know about Thai economic theory.

Well, many of these go-go bars can shutdown and die anyway, since they are prostitution venues and don't really attract anything positive. The best case scenario for Thailand is to transform its tourism industry to a more family oriented hub, instead of being a pedophile paradise for old western men. Nothing could be better than to send these former prostitutes back to their villages and start building up their future once and for all, and at the same time these low income lazy doers should return back to their home countries as well.

If Thailand is going to transform its economy for the better, it must do what is right and take the medical pill asap. Thais are basically one of the worst people to do business in terms of understanding economics and this transformation is indeed necessary.

Many of you guys are complaining that the Chinese aren't spending any money. They do in fact spend money and if you look in comparison how much they are making that makes them big buck spenders. They are also enjoying their vacations much better than an old westerner who much of the time only spends their holidays drinking cheap boos. No wonder why this place has become a stinking pig.

interesting article. proves the Chinese tourists really don't spend money beyond their tour package costs.

i think the Communist Chinese tourists that come to Thailand don't have much money in the first place.

and I think that is true of most tourists in Thailand. low to lower middle class. The Chinese that do have money go to Hawaii or California for a vacation, not a dump like Thailand.

and frankly, i think they are scared to death in Thailand, as this might be the first time they have been outside their country.

They have been told what to do, eat, live, work all their lives, so they feel safe in groups being lead around.

and 2000 baht bar fine? hahahaha...

Som nam naa.

The chickens have come home to roost...

Scamming, raping, robbing, drugging, mob-beating, and murdering guests in their country doesn't fare well on the world stage.

Social media is their downfall.

Major reason the autocrats are implementing a single gateway.

nstead of being a pedophile paradise for old western men. Nothing could be better than to send these former prostitutes back to their villages and start building up their future once and for all. Plant rice, cut rubber to support their children and parents, and sometimes brothers and sisters. Yes, that is the answer. (obviously new to thailand)

And the gateway won't help either, only make matters worse. It's a real shame but Thailand is going down and there'll be no stopping it. Even more of a shame is how so many of us really wish the best for Thailand, and yet in doing so, we find ourselves saying the opposite.

It's not 'enough is enough', it's 'enough was enough', and thanks to their stupid governments the Thais are barely fathoming the horse bolted already. As I've said before they have to suffer to ever have a chance of improving their lot now. Meanwhile, their neighbours who know and understand suffering are already reaping the rewards as more of Thailand's former friends relocate to Cambodia, Viet Nam or elsewhere.

whistling.gif This year (2016 is here now)the Chinese tourists are still coming but they won't be the money spending Chinese tourists that TAT wants.

China will not grow to meet their economic predictions this year no matter what the so-called experts say....and that means the days oft he free spending big shot Chinese businessman are gone for now.

Learn to deal with it.

Somehow i am NOT suprised ... was there the last time in spring 2015 and the prices for food in the evening did pretty much double in the last 5 years on average.

Sure there are still nice places where you get decent food for a fair price (fair doesnt mean as cheap as possible !) but it did get crazy expensive on average ! ( Phuket was never cheap but now its insane)

Only thing that didnt get more pricy was beer and hotel rooms.

Combine that with with a change from europeans (and on Phuket they did have big numbers of Skandinavians that did spend like home a few years back !) to chinese tourists and it will be a disaster soon because they come ALL INCL. and do spend shit outside of that package.

Sadly i did in the past very often hear ( even educated ) Thais say they do not need us western Tourists so we will see how they will do now.

Soon i expect to hear them complain why so many of us do not come back and that it is OUR fault they lack money because the chinese dont spend any.

The record number tourists are Chinese tour groups. They don't spend any money in Thailand so that is just bummer. I remember that a teacher at prince of Songkla university where I was a student once said "we don't need you westerner tourists when we have Russians and Chinese." Hope that she is happy now.

Must have been a waste of time with teachers like that. Ever tried to get a job outside Thailand with your degree?
