Bars, clubs and pubs oh my!
Hard to find a thai to admit to it coz they consider it as anti-nationalistic. Nevertheless this thai, professor of SE asian studies at a US university did just that and says how it is:

Good list of negatives.Ricky Dunn wrote: ↑Mon Jul 02, 2018 8:55 amThailand; Immigration hassles, every three months to check in like you're on parole and once a year requires a shitload of paperwork.
Baht rising against the dollar.
The generals treat the population like children - booze can be purchased only at certain hours.
Lèse majesté crimes and sentences are outrageous.
Worship of Kings is abhorrent to Americans.....I speak for all of them, LOL.
Absolutely ridiculous silly censorship on Western films shown on Thai TV.
Taxed the Hell out of wine because the Thai beer makers are connected to the Generals.
They brain-wash their children in school to respect authority and never question it (Generals and Royalty are one in the same).
Arguably the most corrupt government on the planet.
I thought about renewing my Thai retirement extension for the 6th time but I just can't face it any more, including now having to report every time I return to the country. (Don't even ask if necessity of reporting return is based on length of period outside Thailand; every officer and district has a different story. ) Here in Vietnam, I just hand over some money and never have to put up with officious bullshit Thai immigrunts.
Not to mention the shocking, world-record road death rate . . . well, could go on and on.
You guys are really something with words. Respect
