More shopping centers


Dear Hillary,

Shopping centers seem to be bobbing up all over the place.Central Pattaya hasfive by my count and there is another couple in the planning stages I am told.These centers become mausoleums very quickly, with empty shops everywhere.With such an oversupply, why do they keep on doing it, like lemmings?


Dear Lewis,

There are lots of reasons for so many centers, most (all) of which I do not understand.There are things like tax relief, deals with other countries, corruption, jobs for family members, tax holidays, preparing for the (invisible) influx of overseas tourists etc etc etc.In the meantime, like all Thais, I will shop for the biggest opening discounts.Enjoy.
