What sort of decline are you talking about? A month ago spent two weeks there, still no signs of declining :).

In my opinion Egypt is more likely to experience sort of decrease in popularity because it takes only four hours for Russian and Ukranian tourists to get there comparing with nine hours to get to Thailand. I mean it's sort of expensive for many here.

In addition, Thailand is famous for its go-go bars. I saw a lot of men even quite old ones enjoying being with girls in Pattata. Quite compelling reason for going to Thailand.

I was talking about two Russian female tourists killed on a beach in Pattaya just a few days ago. It’s so sad.

Of course, it's possible. Yet, I have some doubts whether this event will make any impact on popularity of Thailad. Tourism is one of Thailand's priorities. I hope, we will do everything possile to investigate this case and eventually to reassure tourists that it's safe to be there.

My own impression is that Thailnd is pretty good place for tourists. Even such a crowded city as Pattaya is quite safe. When I was there I saw only once two men who were going to fight. Besides there are other resorts. So if this is the only incident and there are no other ones of this sort in my opinion there will be no consequences.

As far as I understand you should not have put the definite article before "girls". Seems you are not talking about particular girls.

rather cheap resources with drinks and hookers and Russian tourists will never give up frittering away their money there. Remember, after the tsunami in Indonesia not so long time ago Russian contingent there was still pretty numerous... I mean nothing can stop them, even human deaths

as for me I don't feel anything special to these young ladies, death is a thing that's always happening :roll:

I mixed up two expressions :oops:

To me it sounds like you emphasize that it is russian tourists who are kind of bad guys. If it is your point it is not correct. I saw lots of people from Western Europe and guys looking like they were from Japan or Korea. They enjoyed being there as well as Russians. So there is nothing spesical about Russians .

Besides, as far as I know Pattaya was not hit by the tsunami. So wasn't Koh-Chang. It was the island of Phuket.

so you say you have seen, does it mean you witnessed? I'm just curious if you were there those unlucky days :roll: I'm not talking about the current situation in Pattaya but I'm talking about the year of tsunami.

there are many bad guys in the world - and so are the groups of russian tourists spending their time in Phuket.

No, I was not there then. Probably I didn't get you when I was writing my last post in which I described the current situation.

Understood. To be honest I am sitting and keep thinking about it. If I had had a chance to spend my holidays in Pattaya in the year of tsunami would I have went there? Still can't find why it's wrong. If I had been there for example in Pattaya could it have created obstacles for rescue operations? If not why not go? Is it immoral? What do you think? Take into consideration that Pattaya is long away from Phuket.

What do you mean by that? Didn't get your point.
