Guess Thailand is in for s big surprise.

Everywhere in the world the inflation are sky rocketing which could easily ends up in 30 to 50 percent price increases. 

If that happens how many turists does they think they will get them. The world doesn't need Thailand. It's quite opposite.

Good luck dreamers you gonna need it.

Sorry to hear about your business being closed, but you are alive which is something you cannot say you would be if you had been servicing infected customers on a daily basis during the pandemic. 

Many restaurants and Markets never closed in Pattaya.  

If you want to go into business, remember, people have to eat and live somewhere. 

Food service and rental housing are the only 2 businesses that can survive a depression, recession,  or a pandemic possibly

Whilst tourism will bounce back, either the Minister is wishful thinking or he has a crystal ball. 9.3 million is a lot to ask given this is the low season which suggests October-December will see a flood of tourists.

Been here for 15 years so I know what I'm talking about. Not someone sitting in a sofa and dreams of the bargirls

Only a year behind me.

 

Surprised you have stayed so long.

 

Thailand will remain a popular tourist, and snowbird,  destination - but global recessionary factors will inevitably impact on numbers.
