Tourism: An end to dual pricing? Tourism minister talks of stimulus measures

I agree it is. I also think tourists should be charged more, that is part of a holiday.

 

What really makes me annoyed is the fact that each year I pay around 156,000b / year in tax to the Thai economy and I am never allowed to enter places at a reduced rate. Sometimes it is 6 - 8 times the price what is scandalous for someone who actually lives here full time. 

maybe you should look for a better paying job..

Good for local people get the discount.

Why should a Doctor or dentist who gets paid more than me pay half the price i have to pay? Unemployed or low income ppl i agree but not the wealthy.

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. 

they come from places where complaining is a national sport, hopefully exchange rates and stricter adherence and enhancement of immigration laws will thin this diseased herd..

But it's not a discount for locals; they pay the right price. It's a bloody great surcharge for foreigners, like 1000% in National Parks!

Can you explain the 1000% concept and give an example.

Interesting. I'll chalk that off to Somchai, who's just too lazy to work at all, never mind top jobs. Let women do them.

I know 95% of farang ok good people. Happy and polite. Welcome to Thailand sure.

 

But only maybe 70% of thaivisa poster ok. 5555555

some the guy weird people. Angry. 

 

Many marry sex worker, and complain, criticize, ridicule and mock thai people everyday. And still want live here! 

 

 

because no one would even give them the time of day back in their own failed state countries and they would probably be living in a box in the street after drinking their life away..

Some good ideas at last, but we all know none of these suggestions is likely to happen. I could suggest other ideas to make Thailand more attractive to tourists.

Stop the immigration queue farce (every time I have visited only around half of the desks have been open).

New driving tests and licences for anyone driving buses, mini buses and taxis, and other measures to drastically reduce the road carnage.

Clean up the sea, what's the point of a seaside resort if the sea is filthy.

The main one at the moment, stop promoting a high Baht because that above all is the reason tourism is on the way down.

And finally , what happened to the land of smiles, it's now the land of rip offs and miserable people.

They are angry at everything they see, whether it's litter, driving standards, rogue ladyboys

or whatever, and this is the place they come to vent and feel superior.

 

It must be awful to be a constantly unhappy and one does wonder why they stay.

 Divorce (and the attached economic devastation), alcoholism, and a lack of self worth plague many in this land. Couple that with being taken for a ride emotionally and financially by a young girl in the immature quest of trying to buy love and that's a heady mix of disappointment. Bitter and twisted, many need a little nudge to go and try to bring their good cheers elsewhere.
