Full moon party !! Drunks , drugs , assaults, . A great image for Thailand as a family holiday destination.

 

All those kids at the parties from families! Just families more tolerant and realistic than you.

That headline made me see Anutin with a pipe, raving like a beast.

"The spokesman also said that the next normal is very different when it comes to the shape of tourism - it's far more about small groups, families and FIT - fully independent travellers."

 

I dont think that TAT or any government agency really has much say in what the makeup of future tourists will be.

 

If they could really control this, the private jets full of the elusive high quality tourists would have been crowding the local airport's runways years ago.

I think they have moved full moon parties to the nearest weekend.

The previous one was taking place during Songkran with 10k participants. This month already done during the extended weekend. 

That indicates it's also thai youngsters taking part in them.

With many guesthouses still closed, islands tourist infrastructure is not in good shape to take care of that many visitors. 

For health reasons there should be limit for entering this island.

New TAT slogan: "Welcome to Thailand, your family-friendly, drug-binging paradise".

ban on alcohol sales,

Which "alcohol sales ban" is that, the one that you just made up that doesn't exist, perhaps?

So much so that next month's return of the famed "Full Moon Party" in Koh Phangan (June 14th) is set to be something of a watershed moment for what the spokesman called the NEXT NORMAL.

The old normal, a beach party full of drunk backpackers.

No lessons learnt at all for a brighter sustainable future.

There's me thinking the Thai tourist board were after more up market tourists families ect 

Now seem to be after hippies getting involved in full moon parties getting drunk 🥴 

I think they need to review their future long term strategy in promoting  Tourism back to the beaches sight seeing  Temples restaurants.  ect

Change of Government policy keep entry restrictions and allow in back packers to attend the full moon party whilst the few high spending quality tourists and family tourists avoid Thailand for other countries

The ban on alcohol sales that is still in effect in many provinces perhaps?

You know the night time curfews, the inability for restaurants and most enclosed bars to be able to sell alcohol between 11-1400 the bans that haven't been lifted throughout most of the country. Those bans?
