Mae Sai Duty Free....Complete Fraud.....

Recommended Posts

Been to Mexico two hundred times (I used to place my sports bets there, as I lived near the border). Never seen the type of tequilla they are selling for 1200 thb per bottle. "reposado" is not a brand but rather a type--aged. The other thing was the cigars. I was there first thing in the morning and one humidor the door was left open. The other one would have had about One million baht worth of goods if you added up the price tags. One box had an ant infestation. Do you really think they would be that careless with something that costly. As a shareholder of Altria I will bet that the Marlboros are fake. The wine was really crappy and was suspicious as well. Big selections of Vodka, but which liquor would be most easy to couinterfeit? Cheers..don't get robbed. And I have serious doubts about the Viagra and Cialis from those aggressive bastards that won't leave you alone on the street. They will try to pick your pocket, and they do work in teams of two. Notice how close they will trya nd get to you. Wouldn't trust them with a pile of sand.

What...you are not suggesting the Marlboros are fakes, and the viagra and cialis, surely not fakes, how shocking; wine fake,....hope you paid with counterfeit

Jees mate, everything is so disappointing for you here. and showing a lot of naivity

why exactly did you come, your 2nd thread no less.

why not do a review on your hotel now while i go and get some valium (fake no doubt)

This has been discussed here before. Still many believers that their stuff is genuine.

My brother bought me a bottle of Jim Beam at the Duty Free there and it tasted like crap...that was sort of bad but even worse it didn't even get you tanked. At least the IPhones are genuine.

Met a bloke on the Green Bus last year who bought some cartons of smokes, and when he opened a pack on the bus there was only two inside a 20 pack. Opened up a few more and the most in one pack I saw was five.

All "tax free" in the world is a scam - there is no such thing as tax free any more.

And the OP is right, many tax free shops take it a little further, by selling counterfeit stuff.

No doubt at a higher price than not-duty-free.

No, either not available in Thailand, or about 50% discount.

Never had a problem buying anything in Tachilek market. The owner of the grog shop sells imported alcohol which is the real deal. He also has the concession in Vientiane.

But almost everything is fake/copied down in the market area, you can buy a nice Brietling or Rolex watch 200 times less than the real one. I have a friend who has a Rolex Oyster bought 18Yrs ago (In Sukhimvit Bkk) and it still keeps perfect time.

The old story Caveat Emptor.
