  • The Thai backlash against westerners

    Lots of xenophobia showing its ugly head recently, apparently by Thais who usually feel entitled to gouge westerners with over-inflated prices. Talk of shooting any westerners seen enjoying themselves etc.

    These pin-headed entitled Thais will likely have no savings, and in these hard times are blaming the lack of westerners to gouge on those same westerners.

    These Thais, much like those oddball westerners who emigrated to Thailand at a young age and adopted many of the local unpleasant traits, can never accept the blame for any situation they find themselves in.

    You're reading a bit too much into a couple of Sino Thais posting on facebook.

      Not at all. I've heard first-hand reports too.

      A westerner I know was intentionally sneezed at when waiting to cross a road by a peasant passing on a motorbike.

      A westerner I know was refused several hotel booking enquiries and told "Thais only welcome"

      A westerner I know who has lived in Thailand for 25 years and hasn't left for the past four years was refused entry into a pharmacy to buy medicine for his Thai wife and told to come back with his passport to prove his story.

          A more effective lockdown, which should see cases reducing in the coming weeks when Thailand's are going to skyrocket.

          No backlash. It's a more developed, diverse, outward looking country.

            I think thais often blame anything and everything on non thais .unfortunately I believe thais are also very short sighted and don't believe anything will burst the bubble .I think thail tourism was beginning to struggle before the virus and their handling of the situation and need to blame western culture for almost anything will only make more folk steer clear.
            after this trip I don't think I will be back watched the decline over 22 years and the price gouging and views of inferior western culture are a real problem for me their are great folk unfortunately like western culture the youth seem to be pushing for an insular society one I wish no part of.
            If there are as many think like me it will impact thailand drastically as like it or lump it thailand needs tourism way more than tourism needs thailand.

              Are you sure these westerners were not of the kee nok variety?

                  Does their wealth excuse being sneezed on or being denied urgent accommodation and medicine because of their ethnicity?

                  I appreciate that those who have put their eggs in the Thailand basket often seek to displace topics such as that raised on this thread onto something less close to home, but bringing up history from over half a century ago when nowhere in SE Asia was even slightly developed, and which is irrelevant to the thread topic of xenophobia towards westerners, is somewhat futile....

                    You're missing the point. There are racial tensions in Malaysia and Indonesia which are not focused on westerners and still persist. Perhaps you could ask your Chinese friends if they've noticed any increase in hostility.

                      There is no point. You're talking about tensions that exist in any multicultural society. Thailand did its best to eradicate such things in the past by insisting that everyone born in Thailand is Thai regardless of their ethnicity. Personally I find that despicable and similar to what the Chinese are currently doing to their Muslims. Malaysia is far superior with regard to such things.

                      It's an entirely different topic to the pin-headed Thais currently taking out their self-inflicted frustrations on convenient westerner tourist targets.

                        Crime in places like Phuket Samui Pattaya and Chiang Mai where a large proportion of the locals work in tourism is going to skyrocket as the weeks progress and broke peasants begin to take what they need to survive.

                          The 5k a month scam for the unemployed because of the virus lock down is not going to help. 24 mil apply 1.68 mil got anything. It's obvious they had a set limit on applications for each job and any after that had no hope, I expect first come first get, anything else would be too complicated for them. Already there have been idiots boasting on fb they got 5k but were not entitled. Scandalous even by the shameful standards of the crooks who run the place

                            Showed my dogs pics of some sketchy-looking dudes the other day just to get them primed for the kemoy season. It was a hoot watching their lips roll back and hearing the deep guttural noises emanating from their chests! Saliva dripping off their lips.

                            They're ready!
