    Prayuth: Movies About Thailand Will Boost Tourism
    23 August 2014

    Prime Minister and junta chairman Prayuth Chan-ocha has offered a solution to the slump in Thailand's tourism industry: making more movies about Thailand.

    Gen. Prayuth, who was voted into the office on 21 August by his rubber-stamp legislative assembly, told representatives of the private sector yesterday that the Ministry of Culture should produce films that "inspire" foreign tourists to visit Thailand.

    Thailand's normally-robust tourism industry has been suffering from a prolonged slump ever since anti-government demonstrations broke out in November last year.

    The protesters occupied major intersections and government buildings in Bangkok, while shadowy militants launched regular attacks on the protesters' camps. Nearly 30 people were killed over the six months of street protests.

    According to data released by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), tourist arrivals for the first seven months of 2014 dropped by 10.47 percent compared to the same period last year, likely due to the political unrest. Revenues from tourism for the same period also dropped by eight percent.

      things that Westerners want to see
      Quite, things like human rights, dignity, equality before the law, fair treatment and equal opportunity, universal suffrage, independent judiciary. Stuff like that.
      Or perhaps what is in mind are documentaries from some raunchy GoGo bars, which will attract an equally keen audience. But they are not meaningful investors.

        He should have them made in Chinese and Russian. Tourism is always in flux. Next dream destination will soon emerge.
