Update of the chart “International tourists arrivals at Suvarnabhumi Airport” for june :

TOURISTARRIVALJUNE

642 732, that’s a drop of 22,9 % compared to june 2008.

But it is better than may : 603 533, -26 %.

It’s not -yet- a Green Shoot… Guess we’ll have to wait next spring ? 😉

Unless of course, the predictions of the Thai Airways acting president become true.

    Well of course the #’s are down, because so many people, like me, are just going to Suvarnabhumi for the wonderful duty-free shopping at the King Power stores, and they are not really traveling anywhere.

    The economy and the screwy government can take some of the blame I guess.
    I think people are tired of being mistreated while on holiday in Thailand.
    Too many scammers these days.

    Many of these people are off duty police, luring novice travelers into police owned scams.

Thailand Crisis

Coup, Economic slowdown, Terror In the South... The situation is worsening in Thailand. Bumpy road like often before.

But this time, it's different.

The key to understand the present turmoil is the inevitable... succession of King Bhumibol.
