When foreigners think of Thailand they think of sex, say Thais

Every country has a reputation of sorts, Thailand is no different from any other country when it comes to that sort of thing.

It is a well known fact, the world over, that Thailand is a sex hub and probably the biggest in the world, with open corruption ranking as one of the worst places in the world!

As mentioned previously, foreigners being considered the cause of the sex industry makes me uneasy. Thailand is a place for easy sex, which has been manifested by the Thais and not by foreigners!

As always, money speaks loud here. Compassion, respect for one another including law and order is thin on the ground. Greed for money is what makes them tick and they will do what ever they can in order to obtaining it. So it's no wonder they have exploited the sex industry to the fullest until it has become what it is today. Seedy. Dangerous. Filthy. Unlawful and so on. T.I.T I'm sad to say.

Sodom and Gomorrah spring to mind!

Prostitution is illegal in Thailand and yet it is available very easily. It's everywhere. We all know !

Makes me angry to think that foreigners are being made to blame for the mess that they, foreigners, are not responsible for.

I read a report which stated that more Thai males are actively involved in prostitution, pimping, human sex slave trafficking and under aged sex, within Thailand, than that of foreigners.

Says it all as far as I'm concerned.

Nobody blamed anybody for anything. They just asked some random Thais about their impressions on what foreigners think of Thailand.  The percentage of random people from anywhere in the world would probably come up the same.

 

A better and more telling question would have been what Thais think of foreigners in general. This would be more interesting than what Thai people think foreigners think of Thailand.

Thailand has an International reputation for

cheap sex, spicy food and dirty water and 

beaches.   So sad, but for many, this is how

Thailand is viewed.

I think I read in the tourism strain article one minister came up with some figure like one fifth of the Thai economy. These statistics tend to change substantially depending on the day and what point one is trying to prove at the time.

True, a lot of official statistics and numbers seem to be very elastic for the last few years.

Polling what actual people think about what hypothetical people think is methodologically sketchy, at best.

Obviously the polls are made by people intending to influence other people and create discontent and anger in society.  Which in response is directed towards the tourists.

One of my duties decades ago was helping to develop polls, surveys, and questionaires for a non-profit organization. I was taught that the objective was to determine how to design them in a way where the results will give you only what you want to make people believe. Which is the purpose of these propaganda tools and rarely do they contain realistic results. For what purpose the results will be used is the main objective.

I always think about Beer Chang, an abundance of food - some tasty and some not so tasty - beaches partially covered in horse manure, gorgeous sunsets and discarded rubbish lining streets, roads, pathways, etc., food vendors picking their noses, combining their hair or clipping their nails in their place of work and last, but not least, taxi drivers driving like idiots - zipzagging through traffic and never bothering to use indicators. 

Love it!

This is true the majority of tourists come here to shag.

 

I'm not sure you understand the meaning of the word 'majority'. 

 

Is Thailand a sex tourist desitination ? Yes it is

 

Is Thailand known for being a sex destination ? Yes it is  

 

Do the majority of tourists to Thailand engage in the sex industry ? Of course not, that's completely naive. It's families, couples, backpackers, and increasingly Chinese & Russion jetsetters. Open your eyes.

Letters not get confused it says the people who talk about Thailand think about sex. Most people around the world are aware of it.

 

Many of those people would never even think to come here, but they probably think firstly that thailand is a place many people go to for sex tourism.

 

I know that some English people tell me they would not bring the children here because they are worried what they might see.

 

We are made painfully aware of these people, we do not notice the people in quietly come here and have holidays and travel around and do other things.
