Baht will continue to remain strong throughout 2020

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

My kid floats in and out of BKK whenever she wants to go shopping and leach off of me, she has 6 (?) since 2019 and when she travels, she looks like a freakazoid, and never has a problem. I think she did 4 last year and two so far this year. Its not the number of entries, its all the other circumstances.

I've no idea the hold that Thailand continues to exert over people that seem to hate it and invariably don't live there. If it was me and I reached a point where I became so bitter and twisted I think the last thing I would want to do was to expend so much negative energy on a place you've admitted you've been barred from.

While I don't want anyone dying from this, I think Chinese mass tourism has had a massively detrimental effect on Pattaya, where the infrastructure just isn't there to cope with the growth in numbers. From that perspective I see this slowdown as a positive however temporary. Nice to see the pound strengthening for my big annual cash conversion next month. Always look on the bright side of life Adders.

from a high of 29.69 a few weeks ago" was on topic, that kind of bs will not be tolerated

Hm. When i used to go to thailand is was near 50THB to a british pound. I just got a refund from B**king.com in THB and it was chnaged into GBP by my bank at 38THb to the GBP. lets see, a pcket of marlborough is 150 thb which is close to $5, Beer is about 60-100THB depending on where you are drinking os thats near $2-$3. Its cheaper in Spain than Thailand now

It’s cheaper in many places but the combination of Thai ladies in go-go bars plus sunny weather can only be found in Thailand.

I always chuckle when men on Thaivisa forum moan about where it’s cheaper now and where they want to go instead and none of them wants to admit they are going to stay in Thailand because of ladies 😁

Instead of baiting/trolling Richard, why don't you post the said videos? That would be more helpful for members..

And again. Take a few days off. Whether you agree or not with another member's views, no need to continually bait and troll.
