Several hotels are lighting rooms to express a resistance message by writing “FIGHT” in Thai language. The tourism industry is totally shut down by the drastic decisions by the authorities in a bid to avoid the covid-19 spread. Most people have lost their jobs, and the most lucky ones who were working at the biggest brands are receiving half the normal wages which is barely enough to survive.
People are going to work every day even if they are not paid because these hotels are providing food for free to the staff. This is a ridiculously bad situation of all the tourism sector and all the ones who were linked like the restaurants and the small businesses, the taxis and street food owners.
This message of hope and courage sure is a warm reminder of how Thai people are keeping their positive spirit through adversity.
