Ahhh so now these 3 countries are "hansum man" target.   Inflation is ravaging UK and German people are starting to worry about war next door, so I don't think people will have the money to spend that Thais think they will have. India also is having economic problems with inflation.  I think many of the midmarket tourists who may have once considered Thailand for holiday will not have the money to do so in the next 1-2 years.

Thailand's economy was already going south before Covid started even with the millions of Chinese tourists that were coming. Now they are predicting 7 million more tourists in the next 3 years without the Chinese coming??

Looking at the root reasons Thailand is loosing tourists to neighbouring countries, mafia run Taxi Services, Jet Ski scammers, Real Estate fraud, Social Media restrictions on negative reviews of businesses, Police stopping and fining Only farangs at Police Stops, dual pricing  to name but a few need to be stopped as these things are happening daily and are well published in other countries media outlets.

That had better end the mask mandate if they want any kind of real uptick in tourism. No one wants to go on holiday and wear a mask

What exactly are they doing to Target Europeans? Can anyone list any initiatives aimed at that market? Are we getting 45 days on arrival still? What about Covid insurance waiver? No? What then?
