Next episode please, shift away some of the agressive poney-horse ride vendors (with the horse poo), who are aggresssively posted right at the entrance of the beach. Thank you.


(assuming they are still around ? ? )

That's an easy one:

You make a shocked face, freaking out and run with the words 'AAAHHHH! I am scared of horses, they are so big!'

to the next sun chair on the beach.

Mission completed, Vendor stunned for seconds..

Are you saying that the National parks had a dual pricing system?


I have been here for a while, yet had never heard of such nefarious affairs!










50 Bahts for Thais.   300 Bahts for Tourist. That's normal in Thailand.

Went to the beach yesterday, got a sun lounger and ordered a couple of drinks while there (no food). The bill included 100 baht charge for the chair. I said to the lady behind the counter "you're not allowed to charge 100 baht anymore". A very nervous smile followed, there were other loungers (tourists) within earshot, and she called over the boss. When I told him the police said he cannot charge that much for the chair he just kept repeating, "thank you boss, thank you boss, thank you boss". I didn't make a big deal of it, because I actually like this particular place, their food prices are very fair, and the boys that attend the chairs friendly. Life goes on in LOS.
