Russian tourists undesirable ?

Our neighbors to the West... many of us have a love for Thailand and it's certainly got plenty to talk about, so lets talk about it here so that it doesn't overwhelm our regular Cambodia sections.

Russian tourists undesirable ?

Postby CEOCambodiaNews » Sat Feb 11, 2017 11:04 am

This was posted on social media today. First question, have Russians become the tourists that nobody wants ? Secondly, is this legal ? Imagine if the sign said No Thais.

Koh Chang -
As we were driving through the island we saw this sign.
We stopped to take a picture, thinking it's a joke.
It's not

I have also seen "No Israelis" signs in Thailand and Vietnam. Not sure about the legality but in principle any business has the right to refuse customers.

Russians can be difficult, especially those on the cheaper end. But then that is true for many nationalities.

so far in this thread we have no

Russians
Israelis
Chinese
pikies
blacks
Irish

but I doubt if any one of this group would ultimately be refused entry if they took out $100 bill and slapped it on the table :plus1:

No laws in these these countries regarding this. Probably had a bad experience or two and decided enough was enough.

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

I took three Indian guys who worked with me for a meal in PP lately.

If I had not been in charge of them, and they not new in the country I would have just walked out and left them there. Two of the three were extraordinarily rude to staff, uncouth, lots of spitting and hacking, and just whinging bastards generally.

If it were my place of business I would have asked them to leave.
