Thailand tourism and it’s Asian allure rides on the coattails of a reputation that burned out a long time ago. What once a fascinating kaleidoscope of pristine beaches and welcoming people is now a ghetto of polluted overcrowding by a deluge of alcoholic barbarian euro trash and a local population with a nasty drive to rip off tourists without hesitation.
I drew the line with the on-set of road rage becoming common place, that was never so obvious as it is today, then there’s the homeless Hungarian beggars who litter Khao San Road and the legions of drunk western perverts who arrived like a tsunami on a demographic wave of simultaneous retirement. Don’t get me started on the subject of foreign thugs who’ve settled in tourist ghetto’s like Phuket, Pattaya, Hua Hin, Chiang Mai and pretty much everywhere else.
The Land of Smiles has degenerated into a rude festering fistula with few redeeming qualities. Like so many countries which were once considered beautiful and have now ‘gone toilet’, it’s time to reconsider Thailand as a destination. Personally I think the degeneration is bad karma coming around from allowing the sex trade to flourish as it has and inviting the worlds worst to revel.
Selling your daughters into blow job parlours to service drunken foreigners, instead of providing funding for technical colleges was never an idea that would end well….it hasn’t. The ‘bad vibes’ have infected the entirety of Thailand and continue to drag the country into an abyss.
