Thailand Tourism Turmoil

Thailand’s tourism industry is in turmoil due to the media hype over the coronavirus outbreak. The levels of panic among certain people worldwide created by the media has caused hysteria.

This is severely damaging tourism and also Thailand’s entertainment sector.  No doubt a number of bars, pubs and clubs will be affected, some have already closed as a result.

Thailand Asia - Thailand Tourism Turmoil


Thai Airways has announced over 12 billion baht in losses in 2019 and surely it must be as bad, if not worse this year.  

When this scare storm passes, I fear that the damage will be done. The unscrupulous media machine will move on to its next scaremongering campaign. Then Thailand will be left to pick up the pieces of its shattered tourism industry.

Mark my words, the media machine will have a lot to answer for regarding the COVID-19 virus scare. Let’s hope this COVID-19 virus soon passes. 

However, will the public become any wiser to their devious trickery?

    I think the problem Thailand has is that we’ve all been hit hard financially. It’s now less about what happens in Thailand and more about what is happening at home. I’ve lost over 15% of money in the markets in less than 2 weeks and as someone not far away from retirement I need to tighten my belt. I used to take 2 trips a year to Thailand. I won’t be going this year. It’s the same with the guys in the workshop here. A few of us had been twice yearly visitors. Most of us won’t visit this year as we need to buckle down and save for retirement.
