    • patrickoniam commented : tourist are definitely imprtant to thailands economy. Although Thailand does have other ways of earning money too!!! like exports. In general, most tourists who go to thailand are pretty good and well behaved and they spend their money and do their part and contribution to the thai economy. But why is everyone on here thinking that the current ecnonmy downturn is affecting Thailand only? Are other countries immune to the crisis are they? Ive always said this and will continue to do so - Thailand offers value for money that alot of countries cannot. Even in these times. Thats why people will not stop going to Thailand - regardless of what happened there. Look at Bali - They had how bombings there? and how many people got killed there? Yet people are still going to Bali Thailand is no different and there are no bombings there. Well, none that claimed any lives.I see alot of people on here saying they will stop travelling to Thailand. I highly doubt that As I said, Thailand offers value that not many countries can and also service cannot compare anywhere else

    • Ian commented : I have several friends in the Uk who are in the building trade, mostly brickies. Anyone with the slightest knowledge of the UK climate will know that the winter months are a slack time. They will also know that brickies earn good money. So they come to Thailand, or rather they did until visas became a pain, now I hear they go to Bali
