By the way, nothing to do with being deliberately accurate :cheesy:

adjective

annoyingly insensitive or slow to understand.

I'm sure you recognize those qualities.

I think that you are being deliberately obtuse - the comment that was made clearly meant that if you asked most Brits back home if they would want to have a holiday in Thailand, they would not be interested, did not want to know, "not on your nellie",  no thank you, no chance etc etc etc.

 

The thread had not deteriorated into a discussion about tourist numbers - that's just the way you see it - your agenda, if you like. Other things were discussed  about the  woman's lack of results in many areas - not just about tourist numbers, not about people who have already had a holiday in Thailand, as you misread it, but merely a comment that "if you asked most Brits back home ..................."  Oh, I give up! As a couple of other posters have done, so you can get back to your tourist numbers - true or false. P.S. I don't want or need a reply, as I now consider this discourse :mfr_closed1:

 

 

 

In the end, she has to be judged on the basis that she did or did not make the tourist experience of LOS better.

The reality says it all.

Indeed, and also judged on some of the ridiculous comments/"promises" that she made - some of which have already been commented on already.

 

What do you think is the most outrageous one? Personally I like:-

"Thai tourism minister Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul is now pinning her hopes on Pokemon Go to keep the tourism industry afloat".

Or:-

"'Thailand is closed to sex trade', says country’s first female tourism minister"

she bett on the wrong horse, mass tourism - chinese
Quite a few Chinese tourist here on Ko Lipe spending loads of money. The western tourists are being replaced by Chinese and other nationals who go on shorter holidays but spend the same or more than Western tourists.

I been on a dive bout full of Chinese (scuba) and that is not cheap.

All this moaning is about less white faves other upcoming economies taking on the slack.

They don't need white faces other Asians will do too. If our currencies were stronger the white faces would be back in no time.

For those never having visited Koh Lipe its an reasonably expensive place compared to other parts of Thailand.

In previous years i saw more white faces now i see more Asians even Thais (on Holliday).

So the Brits mentioned here are of no consequence others picked up the slack.

As for the sex industry so loved by the older white generation its becoming less because of white older tourist numbers dropping because of the exchange rate and prices going up as many ladies can now make money in other jobs.

Personally i lost interest in the sex industry quite fast after living here. I was relatively young 30ies and did not have to pay to get laid. Maybe if im older ill miss it if i still want to have sex with girls half my age or younger.

The time us whites meant something is rapidly comming to an end with lower exchange rates and other upcoming economies.
