Prayuth wanted “Quality Tourists”. Wish granted. It doesn’t get better than this. Pigs on the Loose.
Euro is going downhill, European tourists numbers will follow. Ruble is already downhill. Russian tourists numbers will decrease dramatically. Thailand get ready.
Chinese tourists will fill that gap. First time for them to travel abroad. Many Chinese tourists are rural people who recently acquired money through land sales but have little education and speak only their own language. Adjust to the culture shock:
- A tendency to not flush the toilet.
- Never follow any traffic rules.
- Being loud.
- Littering, spitting, queue-jumping.
- Allowing children to defecate in public pools.
- Terrible English language skills.
- Hoarding food at buffets and leaving a mess on restaurant tables.
Chinese tourists visited the temple. After posing for a photo on the antique teak staircase, one man jumped in the air and accidently kicked the post, breaking it in two. The manager expressed anger after he says the man simply walked away as if nothing happened.
The manager complained that Chinese tourists often steal small parts and sculptures from the museum and also refuse to flush toilets.
The White Temple in Chiang Rai plans to build separate toilets for Thais and other non-Chinese tourists.
The White Temple’s Designer, Chalermchai Kositpipat said he will add the “New Toilets” as a solution to complaints about the lack of bathroom etiquette by Chinese tourists.
Previously, the White Temple staff had altogether banned Chinese tourists after Chinese tour groups had left the toilets in a state of disrepair. “They had defecated on the floor, urinated on the walls outside and left sanitary pads on the wall of the bathrooms.”
