There is not much you can do if you arrive by boat with your family and can choose between paying 200 Baht or going back with the same boat.

If that were to the case, then my wife would be yelling obscenities in Thai, and we would be returning on the same boat, trust me !

 

I would go on to make sure to do what I could to get this out and about whether it be via a Youtube channel, media, disgruntled farang etc etc over 10 x pricing, as we know it's not the money but the principal and if others are willing to pay it because "they can afford it", then the Thai's will continue to laugh at us.

This small island is now eagerly welcoming domestic visitors

The beaches are lined with soldiers, ready to demand 400 baht from Thai based foreigners?

7,800,000,000 people in the world, 670,000 ish have died from covid - so, 99.9992% are now living with 20-30% of total economic destruction of the planet for 0.0008 of the world population that died, whilst growing the earth population 40,000,000 more than covid deaths at the same time. Let that sink in !

 

Just get on with life, this is complete bull toilet now.

 

Open the planet, wear a mask and get on with it. 

 

I would think that just avoiding people who are coughing and sneezing would be the easiest and most sensible practice 🙂 that and staying off Thai roads !

Batten down the hatches, Thailand.  The Wuhan storm’s coming back.  Nobody wants to fly here and go into quarantine.

If they market the state quarantine as “going on retreat” and throw in some token buddhist stuff they could

probably raise the prices and make it all look quite appealing. Being stuck in quarantine sucks, but going on retreat makes your spirit grow. Or your ass. I’m not sure.

Its not 400, its 200. Better to not say anything when you dont know what your talking about.

Put a nightclub with bargirls (and/or ladyboys) completely masked, of course, into each of these government-approved quarantine hotels.  You’ll witness a huge spike in tourism.

From that photo, the beach and sea look absolutely filthy.

Yep, let's hunt down the individual who put those rocks on the sand and that seaweed in the water.

If you can go into my kitchen when about once a month my wife decides to start mustard gas production, sorry, cook some strange Thai dish I doubt you would manage to stop sneezing and coughing. 😆😆

Disagree. Some of the clearest seas/beaches I have ever seen in Thailand were on Samet, albeit nearly 3 decades ago. What they are like now, I have no idea.
