    But there is hope for the Philippines...

    Tourist arrivals in Thailand continued to decline in 2009, leaving the industry on track for an extremely poor performance on a full-year basis. Figures released by the Office of Tourism Development (OTD) show that tourist arrivals fell by 11.8% year-on-year (y-o-y) in the first three quarters of the year to 9.89million, down from 11.2million in the same period in 2008.
    If you build it, they will come.

    Almost four million tourists, lured by better infrastructure, a liberalized airline industry and improved facilities, flocked to the Philippines in 2009. Only half of that number came in the whole 2001.

    Limang araw na yung crackdown. It's only isolated in one place in Bangkok.

    Just heard from the news that Thai troops were given shoot-on-sight orders for those inciting unrest. Not a good time to be a tourist in Bangkok.

    Thai protest leaders surrender, call end to sit-in

    BANGKOK – Five leaders of Thailand's Red Shirt protesters have surrendered to authorities after a deadly army assault on their fortified encampment.

    They have been led away by police in central Bangkok. An army spokesman has described them as "terrorist leaders."

    However, grenades exploded nearby as the Red Shirts announced their decision. Two soldiers and a journalist were injured.

    The leaders told followers they are ending their sit-in to prevent more deaths.

    An army assault on their heavily barricaded protest encampment in central Bangkok killed at two protesters and an Italian photographer.

    Shortly after the surrender news, angry protesters tried to set fire to a shopping mall. They drove away journalists who tried to film them.

    they've been under a junta before so i guess they won't mind being under military rule again

    i just wonder if the world's richest monarch is still as influentual as before. with more thais getting more and more educated, i suppose a lot of them may be questioning the status quo more aggressively - more so if there's an agitator/s championing those kinds of thoughts
