If the Thais just smile all the tourists will come flooding back!

KOH SAMUI: -- Despite the bad weather Thais have been told all they need to do is smile and everything will be alright.

 

The tourists who cancelled their trips will come flooding back and everything will have a happy ending.

 

The message came as the Tourism Authority of Thailand descended on holiday island Koh Samui yesterday to launch "Welcome to Koh Samui 2017".

 

The project aims to mobilize the TAT with the government and private sector to help with the recovery from the bad weather that Samui and the south has experienced.

 

So yesterday TAT chiefs and officials from SME Bank got the ball rolling in Thai style with a beach clean up in Chaweng.

 

Interest free loans and a disaster fund were also announced for operators.

 

Thai New Agency said that visitors to Samui were down 15% and there were usually 3 million arrivals there annually. The high season has been hit with flight, hotel and restaurant cancellations.

 

But TNA said that "quality tourists" from Germany, Israel, the UK and Russia were now returning and added:

 

"Despite the destructive forces of mother nature if the Thai people smile then everything can return to normal".

Hey TAT!!!

 

I am actually smiling right now. In fact, I am rolling on the floor trying desperately to not pee in my pants from laughter.

 

Which Thai smile are you talking about? The one given while being scammed or the one when they know the foreigner doesn't understand that they are being ridiculed or the one that the police uses when it's time to issue a bogus traffic ticket or the one that......

People can sense genuine warmth, wether the person is smiling or not. No need to go around like a grinning fool all the time.

This might have more to do with the lack of tourists than plastic smiles.

Listen up, TaT; it's not just about the weather. We've had bad weather before which didn't stop the tourists. People are going next door. Your country is just getting too expensive vs quality received. People don't want to be deceived and are bored with fake products; the novelty's worn off. Suggest running with the times and at least sorting your currency out and some of the silly rules.

Maybe for a lot of Thais  there are less and less reasons to smile  ...less tourist ,less jobs,longer hours,less pay ,cost of living up

still have to pay all the bills and send some home to parents and kids....

It's a simple equation. Farang arrives first trip and walks around with big fat stupid grin and gets smiles all day
Fast forward.. Farang now lives here drinking heavily sad, depressed bad Relationships, jaded to much TVisa and no more smiles for him
Not rocket science!!
