  • it`s not so much how many tourists you get it`s how much you can sell them. there is a huge range of luxury products in panama city airport. santiago de chile isn`t bad. better than sydney. even panama city could be improved with a greater range of expensive toys and jewelry from $10 to $10,000. same watches. same luxury clothing and handbags. most fashion clothing and handbags are made in china now.the british tourism plan is to sell 4 GUCCI handbags for $1,000 to chinese women. same japan.

  • self employed workers in the thai tourism industry, 6% of the workforce when thailand had 10 million tourists a year, 15 million now, are to a large extent people who have added a few rooms to their house, one at a time, for a hostel. then there´s the street food vendors. cut fruit, fresh squeezed orange juice, noodles with fish and meatballs, toast with toppings, kebabs and felafel, grilled fish and vegetables etc. the second hand book stalls with books collected by hotel maids, the tee shirt vendors in the street and che shirts are popular with these thai petty capitalists. the thais, like filipinos, spend years working out what the tourists like. cubans could take a great leap forward. wholemeal bread, schnitzel for the germans, sushi for you know who, and when hotel maids sell books left behind you soon have books in the languages of your tourists. take a walk down khao sahn road and you can see what the backpacker tourists want. DVD movies and music in the cafes. beer, beer, beer, beer, beer and ron. and pepsi snack foods. healthy stuff !!! at least 5 million a year must pass through khao sahn road on the way to ko samui, backpacker island, and chiang mai and chiang rai. think of bayamo and an island in the islas del rey. think how you would spend 15 billion a year. i know. jim beam and lucky strikes!!!! what is the foreign debt without the bullshit claims? it´s not 72 billion. imagine your credit card accepted again.
