Hi all,

Had a heated discussion on friday night (followed my me getting done for DUI) with some ignorant thai friends who say the tourist numbers in Thailand have not decreased lately.

I argued the opposite. Of course, as i'm only a farang what would i know?

Any online articles i can use as backup?

"Last week the government forecast 3.2 million fewer visitors to Thailand as a result of the unrest. Thailand last year recorded 14.1 million foreign visitors into the kingdom."

Your Thai friends aren't paying attention. Guess they don't work in the tourist industry.
