In Chiang Mai, for example, tourists should be encouraged to get away to places such as Lampang, Lamphun and Phayao. 

Yes, TM30 certainly encourages "getting away"to other places.

Of course not, you’re Thai. Wouldn’t expect you to look past your own nose to show concern for someone else. Thais wouldn’t give a toss about something unless it concerns their own pocket. Obviously the only reason this is even in the news is because tourism is tanking.

 

Typical Thai logic. How about the guys on here who’ve lived here for decades? Are they not “local” enough for you?

As the Thais say
 

"Even the Farang born in Thai, him not have the Thai blood so him not Thai"

If it was eliminated officially (National Parks, Government Hospitals) "foreigners should pay more" is still completely ingrained in the psyche of those who have become greedy though interaction with tourists. Would take a generation or more to eliminate dual pricing. In the US we have open racists and white supremacists, never even heard of duel pricing supported by their ilk. A completely irrational idea.

The OP is a step in the right direction (a little one). It's never nice to see someone grovel but Thailand's time has come. I hope it's not too late.

Many of us hope it IS too late. 

 

And, it's lovely to see them grovelling.

 

Thailand has earned any bad fortune in its foreign tourism sector.

 

What other countries' ministries need to constantly tell its citizens things like:

1. "No more taking advantage of tourists"

2. "No more dual pricing and over charging of tourists"

3. "Our police love all tourists -- Thai and even foreign tourists"

 

Come on. Why would any foreigner feel sorry for these people? It's crazy.

Tourism minister talks of stimulus measures

The Tourism minister has already talked of stimulating inbound western tourism from Europe. 

He is the one who came up with bright ideas of massage and ganja to draw them in. 

Now he thinks that electronic gaming sports might be the answer.

Dual pricing is firmly entrenched and those who benefit are not going to give it up.

Casinos is the only way to bring in more tourists. But with casinos comes corruption and crime and bad people, however there shouldn't be any noticeable difference to what there is now.

Not everyone. I not piss off. 

So, you like dual pricing?

 

I have an igloo for sale in the north pole. I'll even throw in the refrigerator for free. 

 

How 'bout it?

I think the VERY BEST way to get more tourists here is for the government to forget its Victorian false pride and to sell Thailand on its strengths.

 

1. Encourage more and prettier Thai girls into the massage I mean salon and beauty I mean sex trade.

2. Advertise these prettier, younger Thai girls everywhere they currently advertise the current tourism ads.

 

This is the country's only real tourism value.

How about enforcing retailers to put prices on all products, clearly marked, give receipts and as with western countries, give the consumer rights unlike here whereby the consumer is normally given a much higher Micky mouse price for a product unmarked especially to a foreigner and when bought if the product is faulty, tough luck, the consumer looses out. I can recall many instances where Thai retailers cheated me in that disgusting manner.

What´s wrong with dual pricing? It have worked for years, and all the money-buffed tourists that are visiting Thailand can afford to pay.

Everybody knows:If you can´t pay, there´s no play.

It clearly hasnt worked for years. Lots of people, including myself, feel offended by it. Whether people can afford it or not, is not an issue. The feeling of being ripped off is.

Something positive posted about ending an unfair practice and all you all do is whinge. 
 

IF I were Thai and considered TV posters are typical of Farangs in Thailand then I would want them all out. Nothing but whinging, know it alls who are bitter and twisted to the core.

Will happen just after Thailand agrees to become a province of Cambodia. 

LOL. Unlikely that will happen since Cambodia is already becoming a province of China.

So many times I have seen red being charged more than the locals. I even stopped going to parks because of this atrocity of being raped. It would be a good direction to go. They could have discounts to seniors and students and such, but as average human beings, same same, not different. 

Alot of places do have discounts or free entry for students in uniform

Now I won't bother explaining myself as one would have to take off their blinkers first, or go out of the country to see how others are treated as equals in most western countries, including tourists, but this could be like losing face for some, as the truth can hurt 🙂

You say you block me! I think frial ego.

 

But you answer!!! 555555555 you lie!!!
