Phuket: Ladyboy death - farang claims she jumped, mum says it was murder

Phuket police are investigating the death of a 28 year old ladyboy yesterday. The farang who took her for sex claims she jumped from the balcony of his hotel after going through his possessions.



But family and friends say there is no way she would have killed herself. She didn't need money and was not stressed out.



They are demanding a transparent police investigation claiming that it was murder.



Lt-Col Jessada Saengsuree deputy chief of police went to find 28 year old Apinyo Kaewkhao dead after falling from the seventh floor. She had a broken neck and facial injuries, reported Daily News.



The body was taken to Patong Hospital for autopsy.



Ramasan A. from Turkey said that he had been out with a compatriot friend to the bars in Soi Bangla, Patong. He took a ladyboy to his room and the friend took a woman. They had separate rooms.



He told police that while he was taking a shower he heard the sound of the victim rifling through his possessions and getting his key card. He confronted her and she tried to get away via the balcony, he claimed.



After stopping her he said that Apinyo then went to the friend's room and knocked and spoke to the woman there.



After walking to and fro in the friend's room she headed to the balcony, he said. Her final act was to take the hand of the woman and say: "I'm going now". (In Thai: พี่ไปก่อน Phee pai gorn)



Then she allegedly jumped.



Apinyo's mother Amphan, 62, and father Thawee, 64, dismissed this as nonsense saying they believe their son was murdered.



She had called earlier at 9.30 pm and there was no sign of any problem. She had transferred 3,000 baht to her mother. They described her as the main bread-winner of the family who had no money problems and was loved by all.



They called for a full investigation.



Daily News also spoke to a 28 year old ladyboy friend of the victim who they called Mr A.



She echoed the parents' assessment of the case saying that Apinyo loved herself and was scared of heights. She had no need to steal from a tourist.



And if she did she wouldn't have jumped from the seventh floor.



Mr A said that the victim did not know the woman in the other room and there is no way she would have taken her hand then said that she was going to end it all.



Mr A called for a transparent investigation from the police.

Thai media Manager painted a grim picture of tourism in Phuket in an article in which they quoted leading industry figures and analysts.



They said that tourism on the holiday island needed a "big injection" - and the private sector was demanding action from the government in delivering the medicine.



Expectations are that tourism in Phuket will see a 20% decline in 2020. Without government help it could be worse still.



In thirty years of Phuket tourism the island had faced many challenges, they said. And pulled through.



But this was the worst. Experts said that the root cause was the strong baht that showed no signs of weakening any time soon.



There was also a massive oversupply of hotel accommodation. For this year it is expected that the hotel industry will see 50% occupancy if they are lucky.



They think that the low season will be very low - 20% occupancy only contributing to the year round malaise.



Other factors are increasing competition from neighboring countries offering environmental holidays at new destinations. For many tourists the likes of Vietnam are both cheaper and more appealing as well as new.



Manager said that Phuket has enjoyed 14 million visitors annually in the past and they spend 44 billion baht a year.



But all this is now under threat.

  Les plages thaïlandaises aussi chères qu’en Europe
Posté par : Axl - 24/11/2019, 18:39 - Forum : News - Pas de réponse

La faute en grande partie au taux de change du baht thaïlandais : les vacances en Thaïlande sont devenues 40% plus chères pour les Européens




Certaines plages thaïlandaises sont maintenant aussi chères que leurs homologues en Europe selon une étude du site Skift.com.

Réputée pour être une destination exotique mais bon marché, la Thaïlande est de moins en abordable pour les touristes occidentaux en raison de la hausse baht thaïlandais.

C’est surtout le cas si on compare les prix dans la catégorie des hébergements haut de gamme.



Dans les sites touristiques de Koh Samui, Koh Phangan et Koh Samed les prix peuvent atteindre l’équivalent de 500 dollars (environ 15000 bahts) par chambre et par nuit, petit-déjeuner américain compris, dans un resort haut de gamme.

Des prix désormais similaires au coût d’un hébergement cinq étoiles dans une station balnéaire en Grèce, en Italie et en Espagne, et plus élevés qu’un hébergement comparable en Turquie ou en Égypte, qui coûte 350 $ la nuit, selon Diethelm Travel Group.

Une inflation de 40% pour les touristes européens
Le tarif des vacances en Thaïlande a augmenté d’environ 30% en dollars US et de 40% en euros au cours des cinq dernières années en raison de l’appréciation du baht selon Stephan Roemer, PDG du groupe Diethelm.



Il y atout juste un an, un euro permettait d’acheter 37,5 baht : aujourd’hui il ne vaut plus que 33,2 baht.

évolution du taux de change EUR/THB sur un an
L’évolution du taux de change EUR/THB sur un an représente un surcoût important pour les touristes européens qui se rendent en Thaïlande
Le baht n’a cessé de se renforcer depuis janvier, en raison d’un l’excédent persistant du compte courant du pays, et de réserves de change importantes, avec un taux de change dollar-baht maintenant de 30 bahts comparé à 36 baht auparavant.

Le tourisme européen en baisse
Le Centre de recherche économique de la banque Kasikorn s’attend à ce que le nombre de touristes européens en Thaïlande baisse de 1,5% cette année par rapport à 2018, pour atteindre 6,66 millions avec des recettes en baisse de 1% en un an à 15,4 milliards de dollars (468 milliards de bahts).
