Yet the airlines can get away with charging exorbitant prices

Wait until this is over and we might see these prices are the new norm!

They should get their butts up to Pattaya, they would have a field day ! I have bought 2 masks so far, average price 20Bht for one, and which obviously could not have cost more than 50 satang to make 😞

Was offered the very same style box of 50 for 875 baht at my regular high street pharmacy yesterday, or price for a few was 20 baht each which I accepted as most pharmacies nearby dont have any, let alone at the correct price.

That is dirt cheap. I was asked 99 Baht for a similar mask at the below pharmacy at Rompo about 15 km outside Pattaya, and it wasn't farang price, since the price was written on the box.

 

Later I got one for FREE from the lady selling opticals outside the local post office. I think government advice price is 2 baht.

You mean the 140,000-baht fine they've declared?

 

I feel sorry for her, probably trying to make a few hundred baht from this.  

How many members here regularly spend more than that on a night out drinking?
