Recommended Posts

Swap dropping it for getting rid of TM 30 and 90 day reporting. If they have given me a 365 day extension i dont need to see them for another year!

Sure, go to the monkey temple /ruin in Lopburi as I did, it was around 15/20 baht for a Thai and 200 baht for me. If hadn't been for the kids enjoyment I would have walked away.

 

Had similar at a waterfall somewhere that was 10/1 as well.

I note what you say. At times when I am a lone tourist the foreigner price is often quite reasonable in the absolute scale of things. What does get to me, though, is when we go out as a family group with associated hangers-on.  They wouldn't be there without me driving them but at times I'm still asked for the higher fee.

Fair enough, 200baht seems to be the average tourist fee for a national park.

What a local pays is not important to me, unless I'm taking the in-laws and various

kids from the village. Then 200baht a pop would be a little worrisome with the tribe

packing out the flat bed!!

Not everyone. I not piss off. 

Giving "local people" a discount is a good way to entice locals to visit venues that they might not otherwise visit. I have no problem with that. But, there are many "local people" who are not Thai. 

Where I lived, in the States, there were "resident" discounts offered - amusement parks, restaurants, and even college tuition. However, "resident" wasn't defined as "American". It was defined by post code. 

Where I find the Thai system most distasteful is at government run venues. Foreign residents pay as much, and often more, in taxes as many Thais.

Is being the 'big wife' is considered a senior management position?

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! 

 

 

I couldn't think of any worse than living there. Thailand has taught me how lucky I am to come from the UK.

I used to take visiting friends to the Chiang Mai Botanical Gardens as it is a delightful place, but once the prices quadrupled, I stopped doing this.

 

Maybe a page out of the Chinese system:  If you're over 60, you enter such places for free or at a discount.   Just show your driver's licence or passport.  😁

It's free if you're over 60.

You only pay for the parking.
