If there are no tourists to cheat/scam, then go ahead and rip off your fellow countrymen...

Maybe that's a good thing. Maybe the authorities will take more action from angry Thais than foreigners who will be gone in two weeks

travel is down too with 4,160 tickets being returned to bus companies.

4160, wow, what a collapse!

I see empty bus stations 🤣

 

And from the videos: the convoy of vehicles on Mithraphap is still moving(!) 👍

But you said " not polite " ? Which is why I questioned your response.

 

Admittedly it wasn't polite, but I think I, my mrs & and a lot of other people would have said the same, when this thing first hit us many people tried to cash in by upping the price of masks, gels and other safety products.

 

I apologise if I misread your reply but it wasn't difficult to be honest, you need more than 2 words to avoid confusion. 😎

No need to apologise, by saying not polite I was just joking as this phrase is quite common in Thai circles. See it as sarcastic.

"and jail terms of 7 years and fines of 140,000 for price gouging"

 

does that include the prices of AZ vaccines and PCR tests?

RE; advertiising prices, we were in a Thai restaurant reading the menu, i asked  my wife had she any idea as to why no prices for the meals  were shown, she asked  one of the staff, the reply was" its up to who is ordering"..i took that to mean one price for Thai's, another price for foreigners... we left ..

I've noticed the food of prices at restaurants have gone up a little. Is it just my place or everywhere else in Thailand?

This has been a common practice for many restaurants in tourist areas. The prices on the English/Chinese menu is for foreigners. Nothing strange about that.

 

If the menu is all in Thai, then it is Thai price.
