The following is our weekly feature in which we ask our readers a news topical question and get their insight and opinions. We then share their feedback a week later and pick a variety of diverse and interesting responses.
This week, we want to ask: What exactly is, in your opinion, a “quality” tourist?
Some context around this question:
We often hear from the Thai government that they want to attract more “Quality” tourists. This is usually not given any sort of explanation and is open to wide interpretation.
So, we wanted to ask YOU, our readers, what you think a quality tourist is. Is it spending? Is it tourists who don’t drink or party? Is it tourists who try to truly learn about Thai culture? Is it tourists who visit outside of big tourist areas like Pattaya or Phuket? Is it someone who doesn’t post negative reviews or feedback online? Is it someone on a tour group? What do YOU think?
