Thailand Turns Tourism Into Torturism

 

Eva Air Flight Crew - Special Tourist Visa Requirements

EVA AIR FLIGHT ATTENDANTS 2020

 

Thailand has announced its Special Tourist Visa requirements which includes extortionate mandatory quarantine accommodation prices. 

Recently a friend of mine paid 80,000 baht which is £2,000 for a 14-day stay in a quarantine hotel room in Bangkok. He was forbidden to leave his room, with horrible stone-cold food left outside his door. He said, “I felt like a prisoner and could not wait for the ordeal to be over.” 

Many people feel it is not only extortionate but an ordeal, due to the lengthy and draconian process. Most of us veteran expats know the Thai Junta take draconian to the extreme. You seriously need to think is this worth it?

Bangkok Covid-19 Virus Update

Monday, March 23rd, 2020

 

COVID 19 - Bangkok Covid-19 Virus Update

 

The Covid-19 outbreak in Bangkok has spiked, forcing the Thai government to seriously consider a lockdown. 

Bangkok is already in shutdown mode with shopping malls, bars, nightclubs and restaurants, all closed until at least April 12th. 

Recently, the Thai Army was deployed to disinfect Chinatown and Thailand was recently praised for their efforts by the World Health Organisation. 

It is the consensus from ground zero that lockdown is not a matter of if but when. With the Covid-19 cases rising it is more inevitable. 

NB. Covid-19 is an acronym for Corona Virus Disease 2019 

 

Gov’t Considering Emergency Decree as New 89 Cases Reported

BANGKOK – Emergency decree may be enacted soon to impose a lockdown of Bangkok in a bid to stem the coronavirus epidemic, government sources said Friday. The measure is being discussed just as health officials on Saturday say 89 new cases of confirmed infection were found, a sharp rise from daily tally in recent days.

Thailand Tourism Turmoil

Sunday, March 8th, 2020

 

pattaya walking street 2 - 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.

Stickman’s opening article in his weekly column is a collection of opinions and on the ground reports from foreign residents in Thailand. My opinions are among them and you can read it HERE

I still stick by my guns in my previous article entitled, Thailand Gets Knocked Off Its Pedestal  which you can read RIGHT HERE 

 

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.   

 

Amazing Thailand - Thailand Tourism Turmoil

 

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?
