Both Chinese and Russian travellers will be thin on the ground for at least the rest of 2022.

Has to be the most understated comment I have ever read on Thaiger.

But all this is irrelavant as the millionaires in their private jets are in holding patterns above Bangkok there are so many of them,  when they finally get on the ground they'll be buying those top drawer Elite visas, buying condos by the dozen and splashing a few million more daily.

No sh!t Sherlock springs immediately to mind.

Thailand desperately needs to find a non-invasive means of transferring brain cells between government departments because there is an alarming shortage in play.

Alternate days see one department forecasting 5 million descending on Pattaya from the bowels of the Hindu Kush whilst the next sees another raising the possibility of economic catastrophe because they don't have sufficient planes to get the aforementioned punters in place.
