Sigh.....predictable ignorant CM expat post.

Touche! Typical ignorance and obvious grapes from someone who's never lived here but perhaps was ripped off once in the wrong hole of a weekend 🙂

I think this is hilarious, and all the more funny for seeing the horror in the replies from the good upstanding farung residents, living in Chiang Mai Spa for the benefit of its clean air and many temples.

I always thought these rows of pretty girls showing their legs along the walkways were employed by TAT to brighten up the City, just  like the rows of fairy lights along Brighton seafront. It did seem an extraordinary price to pay for public entertainment but I had no idea there were iffy goings on behind the curtains.

Same thing happened to a mate of mine, but he was 'only' charged THB80,000 for two beers, then physically assaulted by the manageress when he questioned the bill. The police, who were conveniently waiting outside the karaoke bar, were called and the magnaminous bar owner eventually settled for THB40,000. Avoid these places like the plague

Chiang Mai - infamous for their Karaoke scams and worst Immigration on the Planet … s-hole

People complain alot but in my eight years in Chiang Mai never had a problem with immigration. Karaoke Bars nver been forced into one nor have any desire to go, plenty of places to drink and have fun

Traveled all over the world for work and pleasure. Tourist rip offs happen in every country in the world, every race, every religion, every culture especially in Karoke bars. Sometimes I think some TVF posters have been to two countries in their life - their home country and Thailand. Their home country was so great that they move thousands of miles to Thailand to live and bash it every day.

To me that is a waste of time and a miserable way of life. Peace ✌️

Ive always found CM immigration to be very polite and helpful as well .

Even when it got busy a few years ago , they often stayed working to 8 PM to serve everyone and it wasnt their fault that they were understaffed .

  They suffered as much as the customers and they spent years appealing to BKK for a bigger immigration office with more staff .

At this rate Thailand is gong to find itself off the "top destination to visit" map in SE. Asia

But maintain a strong lead in the "top destination to avoid"  !!!!!

Jeong Geunbok, 46, agreed to withdraw his police complaint against the Forever karaoke bar after its manager Chaiwat Songchaiwan, 35, showed up at police station and returned the money.

I think the guys is a complete moron. However, it would be interesting to know who actually owns the bar, how many cops it has on it's payroll, and what the 'discount' would be if he was a Chinese tourist?

Some Thais think you need to screw everybody you can today as there may not be an opportunity tomorrow. They are masters at doing so.
