Is it wrong to hope there is more airport slapping?

I think the happy slapper lost his job.

Some Chinese just bought the hotel were my wife worked in Chiang Mai they paid between 200 to 300 million for hotel with big plans to make changes. Maybe they know something or they will lose their butts.

Walked around Chiang Mai lately? It has a massive glut of hotels even if the Chinese return in force. No one wants to talk about.

 

On the positive side I actually saw some guests leaving one of those three new boutique hotels between the old/new refurbished Hotel M and Kafe on soi 5 moonmuang RD. Two and a half months, sure, but people were sited. WooHoo!

Something has to be done, everyone agreed

I'm just glad everyone agreed on doing something and they didn't start hitting each other.

Learn Chinese? Hmmm, after decades of promoting English language learning the country is still struggling with nearly the lowest competency in the region. Still, nothing wrong with a little bit of hopeless optimism I suppose 🙄

Could it be because Chiang Mai is a bit meh? Wonder if they ever consider that as a possible reason.

The Chinese were feeling disrespected, said Chiang Mai news. 

Like most visitors

After all, said reps at the the meeting, are not 80% of Thais descended from the Chinese anyway in some way or another and aren't we all one big "happy family"? 

Sure everyone in China, all ethnic groups love each other.  They don't.  What a dumb comment.  The Thais were forced out of China.

At least the Chinese could be confident of getting the visa stamps for the price on the receipt - 2,000 baht. 

A pretty low bar when it comes to confidence.  And you wonder why Thailand leaves a bad taste in their mouth.  

 

Dual pricing want away in China two decades ago.  Their immigration does not have a rock star  at the head with media consultants

Why Chinese tourists have stopped coming to Chiang Mai in one picture.  :whistling:

My daughter who works in the Hotel industry,says numbers

are definitely down a lot, and the Chinese are now going to,

Japan,lot less rip offs and a lot safer,and I think once they

are gone they won't be returning,and really who can blame

them.

Yes I hear you, but financially two different worlds.

I would suspect a lot of Chinese just can't afford Japan the way they can Thailand.
