it appears not only foreigners get scammed 555

But when Thais complain action will be taken.  Same thing happened last year.  Thais complained and the restaurants got their pee pee's spanked.

They should have known better. Nothing is free not even -no cover charge- as it fronts for what comes next.

Why didn't they ask for a menu.?

I had lunch on the beach with some Thais in Rayong ,atleast we had a table and bench.

Only reason I agreed to eating on the beach was because I wasn't paying. Lol

Bill  for 3 or so basic rice dishes,  a fish plate and a couple of Singhas630 ml bottles 2000 b thereabouts.

Waste of money.

Often no prices on these menus, especially seafood, which sells at daily market prices. If prices are shown they'll be the highest, to cover price fluctuations. Even so, I've found the "beachside premium" way too much for what you get.

They charge 1000 euros to rent an umbrella for the day!

Free means free. If the sign  said " sit here but please order something" then i would  have done so

 

If me i would  have pointed to the sign saying  free

 

Then  not order  anything 

 

As false advertising

There are two easy ways to solve these issues.

 

1. Mr. Prayuth should use his super power of article 44 to make a new law:

Every location, shop, restaurant has to show clear prices for all items, services or products they offer.

 

2. The embassies from all the nation should make some clear detailed warnings on their homepages about the scam, frauds, dual pricing and cheatings in Thailand. Then people could consider to come or not.

But since the most embassies are only tools to help the rich companies to establish a cheap production location, nothing really will be change.

 

I see only one way. Put all the scam, frauds, dual pricing and cheating locations in a Google maps review. Over the time people will avoid these locations.

Mavideol...   I am a cheap charlie?

Yep, if thats what you call it.

There is very little in Thailand worth paying western money for. Local food is terrific except  most seafood.    30 -50 b for A full meal...never had food poisoning. Hookers ,  if you want one,30 dollars, clothes dirt cheap,rent dirt cheap with a/c.,even Buddha statues that farangs pay 800- 5000b for are given away free by temples to regulars who give alms.

Many end up in soi markets...farang are gullible.

If I am defined as a  cheap charlie so be it.

 

with so much/many "bad" things here, why are u still around....

your quote """ Only reason I agreed to eating on the beach was because I wasn't paying. Lol """ for me that's being a cheap charlie.... but opinions may differ

Eight people - 2300 Baht - a seafood feast. Not really a rip-off. Bit expensive.

Prawn fried rice. Bt400. For that not to be a rip-off it would want to be one very big plate of food. It's all way over priced. Guess they need the money to pay off the BIB daily visits.😎
