Relying on the Russians - Thai hotels chief has mixed forecast for Pattaya high season

Recommended Posts

Awinkl    10

Madam TAT and all the other TAT Bosses live in a Bubble - and have no Idea at all of what goes on in reality outside of their respective opulent Offices. Just consider the "Farangs pay double (or more) to enter most places of interest in Thailand - and once inside, many things don't work, or have only THAI descriptions.

I visited one of the important Theological  Sights near Udonthani ...... while the presentation was interesting, but all descriptions were only in THAI. Several Video displays were "out-of-order" and when  asked how long that had been the case - the answer was .... for about 8 months!!

And I also recall comments from Pattaya City Hall, where they referred to Pattaya as the "RIVIERA of Asia"!! Given the dirt, stink and general Pollution around, one has to wonder how they could ever come to such a statement?  

Just to extrapolate Tourist numbers ...... is one thing, but they usually reflect the state of Services that are offered.

If a quality tourist wanted to come here they would not find much in the way of theaters, art galleries, and museums. There simply aren't very many.

Plenty of Thai culture to shove down their throats, though.

And what exactly is wrong with Ripley's :cheesy:

His comment would pierce a hole onto the annual beautiful prediction from the TAT.

He expected Germans, Scandinavians and people from the UK to make up a fair proportion of what he called quality tourists but cautioned that their number were not expected to be as large as in recent years.

 

Those kind of tourists were less interested in high class hotels and are looking more to condominiums and apartments, he said.

Quality tourists do not stay in condos and apartments they stay in 5 stars hotels.

Pattaya residential condos are full of holiday makers even in low season when this is illegal in thailand. Not only is this a nightmare for owners and residents but has a major impact on hotel business. I would suggest hoteliers get toget her with government and police to stamp this out.

Based on some news items on here, over the last couple of months, that would be debatable ! :coffee1:

 

Quality tourist is simply defined by someone who actually has the financial capability to spend money.

Quality tourist is only about the money. And no shooting! Falling off a balcony is suspect.

 

Oh, and no paper in the toilet.

 

I like art but I don't think the generalissimo cares.

No paper in the toilet? Use the water from the tap with hose to wash you buttocks!

  How much money should  a  quality foreigner/tourist spend per mounth in the kingdom, 80K upwards ?, that will do nicely .

"Relying on the Russians - Thai hotels chief has mixed forecast for Pattaya high season"

 

And running side by side with it in the headlines:-

"Floating trash off Pattaya's coast - watchdog blaming Thais as "sixth worst polluters" in the world"

No surprises there, then!

 

And from Post #31 (With thanks to Awinkl):-

"And I also recall comments from Pattaya City Hall, where they referred to Pattaya as the "RIVIERA of Asia!! "

How many art galleries, theatres and museums are there in Pattaya? I love the place but it's a bit of a cultural wilderness.

Why on earth would anyone visit Thailand for its galleries, theatres and museums; that's what you do in places like London, Paris and New York. When they say quality tourists I think they mean people who stay in five-star hotels, indulge in organised excursions and activities, and probably spend a lot of their time lounging by the pool. I would imagine a lot of these guys have high pressure jobs and are here to relax not improve their minds.

Correct! That's why I have put "a certain poster" on "Ignore" His posts have about as much substance as the sea off Pattaya beach!
