Not high end tourists



Re: TAT targets high-end tourists to drive Pattaya revival (PM Friday, 21 November 2014) – All the Russian and Chinese tourist I’ve seen here in Pattaya are a long way from the high end tourists TAT thinks will come. Less face it, Pattaya is only attractive to Russian and Chinese on organised package tours or on charter flights. For the Russians, because it’s cheap and they get a free visa, and for the Chinese because it’s often an employer reward bonus and is a trip out of China.

Pattaya will not be attractive to high end tourists in my lifetime, if ever.
