    Chinese tourist invasion set to escalate

    Cheers, Rob.
    Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting: holy s.h.i.t what a ride!

    Khon Kaen's new international Terminal will bring in a lot of flights from China.

    Anyone have an update in the proposed railway from CHina to Chiang Mai?

    I guess that means personal safety will become more an issue.

    I'm not surprised by the Chinese number but I thought the British percentage would be much higher than it is

    With all of Europe, UK and USA being at only 4%, (and they didn't even mention Canada or Australia-New Zealand), it is little wonder that the Thai Authorities don't give a shit about us. It's an entirely different set of dynamics.

    My only warning to Thailand is to be Just careful who you sell your soul to. Cambodia has just about allowed the Chinese to take over their country.

    The main problem with the Chinese is they all seem to go and stay in the exact same places. And, they travel in groups. That cuts out the small Thai shops and market place. That is very obvious in Chiang Mai.

    Same here in Sydney ,
    Chinese Fly here on China Air .....Get picked up at Airport in Unmarked White Bus driven by Chinese Driver . Then Taken to Chinese Owned Hotel . Get taken on tours of Chinese Owned Shops and Buy things Made in China and so on .
    Not much of their money gets to the Aussie Businesses , But they use our Roads , Drink and use our Water , Contribute to pollution here with their Big White (stealth) Busses everywhere . Spit on our streets and then Buy a house or 2 before they leave .
    Chinese tourists are a negative here . Fuck them off .

    They are going to be renting motorbikes. 555 I think I talked about when a Chinese couple decided to come to a dead stop in the middle of the road when we were on Chob's 10 baht tour.

    I see what you what you are getting at. Our personal safety won't be affected. I think I was reacting to all the Chinese tourist that seem to be dying left and right.

    They spend the most according to the graph. Would be nice to see a per person average.

    I've got a funny feeling that I might be responsible for most of that when I get plastered in Suzi Wongs

    Bangkok condo sales figures reflect an increase in Hong Kong Chinese purchases.

    We're seeing an increased number of land and house sales in our Chiang Mai mooban. Land being cleared today, approx 2 rai [3200 m2], was purchased by a Chinese family (thru Thai Co. 49/51% shares) and they'll build 6 homes to accomodate the entire family with a central swimming pool ... resort style.

    Sounds like "bending the rules" and changing a strictly residential area into a come and go tourism business.

    A jolt of shock went through my back I never felt before

    I screamed at them that they were fxuking morons
