I've heard his son hates all backpackers and will ban tourism. Is this true?
Sorry, when the king dies will his son ban tourism
Any links with info? Thanks
Uh, I very much doubt it, imagine what it would do to their economy.
I read the blog i find intersting that, and its true that some backpackers and tourists have the minimal respect for the local culture and i feel sad.
But not all are the same.
Well, plenty of other countries to visit.
The kings son is no stranger to disrespecting others, so one would think he would have some tolerance for tourists who are 'disrespecting'.
I don't think they will. they're getting 20%!o(MISSING)f their GNP from tourism. It's going to make them suffer if they ban it
What does the death of King Bumipol have to do with tourism? Rumour mongers love feeding this kind of information. The King is the King, tourism is tourism. The King has been dead for many years his wife runs the show in Thailand. The son is suspected of having aids and although he has claim to the throne may never see it.
If this would be true, which I doubt it is, I regret all the efforts that Thailand has made pushing their tourism like that. They're one of the leading in SEAsia along with Malaysia.

And what would be done with all those resorts and hotels, that nature was destroyed to make room for?
Thanks for the info, I've just heard this rumor from more than one person, so I figured I'd do a little research before I believed them.
I would suggest that tourism will carry on as per normal.
The King is not dead-he is ill.I would'nt go around stating things like you have in your post.In Thailand that sort of statement could get you arrested on a charge of 'Lese Majeste'.

Yeah, there is a thread or two here on TravelBlog about people getting arrested and imprisoned for saying just about anything negative about the king. Ridiculous, but true.
It's still strict there, like in Dubai. Read of some stories (in Dubai) of foreigners really having horror stories due to debts. Anyways, heard the king's better.
The king himself is reasonable and an impressive leader, but the Thai police are not so reasonable and think it is their duty to protect the king by imprisoning anybody who says, writes.... anything at all against him.
Can't really blame the police,Mell -they're only carrying out their duties according to the law.It's the laws that need changing.
Well, the king supports the changing of that particular law... Thank goodness, there is a leader with some common sense. For some reason, the police and the general public are not supporting/ are ignoring this particular opinion of the king, despite the widespread belief that the king is always right.
It maybe possible but tourism is a part where a country may benefit because of the tourist. Even there are issues about the backpacker, there are some solutions to solve this and it will take a long deliberation on this.
I dont think the kings son cares about solving any problems tourists cause. I think he thinks no further than he doesnt like tourists.
