After the years I've spent in Thailand, I've come to realize there's nothing I can do to change this so I just accept what the price is or walk away from it.

sneaky because it's a way from the main entrance, kind of hiding behind some bush/leaves.... insulting because it's discriminatory and I don't like to be discriminated for such stupid non sense rule t

I thought somebody at the Prayut's gang was looking at removing(or already did remove) the discriminatory/discrimination DUAL Over pricing fee to enter parks  here, I guess I was expecting too much from these scum bags, my wrong, so today decided to visit Krabi with some Thai friends, group of 6 people (2 foreigners included) and we went to Krabi Fossil park, were instructed to purchase tickets at the both,  much to our surprise the lady ask for 5 Thai to pay a price and for the 2 of us to pay different price, we all looked at each other with surprising look and asked why, she pointed to a sign located to the left of her booth, Thai friends start to argue and told her we have Pink card, live here for many years and we all should pay same price, she pretended not to understand and kept pointing at the sign... we then realized that it was a lost cause and the park has nothing special to see besides some rocks with some (or they say) fossil gravures dated 75 millions years ago, not my cup of tea and was not looking for any arguments, we did U Turn and left.... there was nobody there, park and stores empty, tourism is down to zero and yet they still practice dual pricing with an attitude.... Thailand should prepare itself for a rude/unpleasant awakening

I (we Thais included) walked away as well, was trying to refresh the government rhetoric as some time (not to long) ago there was an article here at TV referencing the governments idea of completely/fully/totally removing such stuxxx discrimination towards us

Was there a couple of years back with the Mrs (Thai) fortunately the tide was in at the time so nothing to see (yippee 🤣) I also wasn't looking forward to a rather treacherous descent and steep return trip.

 

So we ventured down to the shooting range not far away, much more fun 😎

Thank you for the link, unfortunately I can't join or post as I don't use FB, please feel free to forward that photo as the way is displayed it's (at least) sneaky if not discriminatory insulting

 

Our opinion is that if they want to overcharge foreign tourists by as much as 200% then that is their decision. But, don't do it in a way that is both sneaky and insulting.

How is it sneaky and insulting?

From my experience seems the prices at most of these places are clearly posted, as in your photo.

yeh, kind of annoying. Rented a boat for a day out in the marine 'park', 40 baht for Thai 400 for farang. Having said that the boats are half price compared to last year.

I visited some years ago, got the Thai price by showing my driving license. You didn't miss much unless you are very much into fossils:

Especially now I would expect them to offer dual pricing everywhere there's an attraction.   Because everyone are <deleted> poor due to the pandemic.

So where on the scale does Florida sit on discrimination compared to Thailand again? 

 

No idea, that's why I was asking the question. 

 

As for the dual pricing in Thailand, as they say "up to you", personally I vote with my wallet (as I do in other parts of the world where dual pricing isn't  unique to Thailand as people want to make out).

I think it's reasonable to ask maybe double what a Thai would pay, but 5 to 10 times more is downright rude

 

It's still just $6. 

 

If that's going to ruin someone's day, I suggest they aren't Thailand's target demographic- not the foreigners they want to cater to.

Why ???? Why should you or any foreigner pay 2x (or any more, or less) than a Thai ??? 

 

There is no reason or excuse which justifies any additional charge whatsoever.

Don't go, simple.  There are plenty of other nice places in Thailand to spend your money. I stopped going anywhere near the south of the country years ago after being constantly ripped off by the greedy locals.
