Some 50 Malaysian tourists refuse to pay park fee at Lipe island

Recommended Posts

it is funny, since malaysia have also dual pricing,

Except Malaysia parks and attractions work very fairly around a residents card.. White, pink yellow or brown skinned people are defined as living there (discount) or international tourist (no discount).

To me this system seems pretty fair.

Australia has dual pricing, residents of beach side suburbs get a parking sticker for free local parking at the beach. Tourists and visitors from other areas have to pay to come to the beach. In a way it makes sense as the ratepayers carry the cost of the mess that visitors make. It is the basis of the user pays system. I can understand why Thailand charges a different price for visitors.

Prayuth could save this country by clearing house at TAT.

If they had any brains in their head which they dont, they would charge ALL 50 baht and that would even things out. Is 50 baht too much for Thais to pay? How many bottles of beer does that buy when they have all their friends over?

Just do not visit these locations.

Further, if some store does not have proper prices on their goods. Tell them, you can't buy any item,

because you don't know how to make sure they tell you a proper price and do not want to cheat on you.

I agree proper prices should be shown at all times but this will never happen.

Go along to just about any second hand car dealer and their are no prices shown on the actual cars.

It's a matter what they think they can get, so pluck a figure out of the air and if you are a farang add another 100,000 or so.

Hm, well

I earn 10 times the money a skilled Thai worker does. Cancelling double pricing could mean the Thais pay the same as foreigners, meaning a Thai family could never ever afford a visit to a National Park in their own country.

Maybe the reasons the Malays were that upset ist the fact, that their National Parks are freeof charge (visited one on Penang, just registration, so they can go after you in the case you got lst, but no pay booth at all)

Maybe if all the money collected from tourists throughout the country was properly used the locals wouldnt have to pay more. It is a form of tax if you like and one that is totally wrong

In my country Thais would be paying about 5,000 baht to visit the zoo.

Sounds exactly right.

If a Thai can afford to travel abroad then they should pay more, as they must be wealthy.

And if they want to see something different outside of Thailand, then they should be paying more. (some Thai politician came out with something like that)

The NP entry fee will be added to the tour operators pricing and then the operator will have the problem of explaining to the farang. Fisty cuffs modve from NP, everyone happy but the tourist farang

so you mention that all foreigners earn 10x more than the Thais?

even not 50% of all tourist do earn this amount, the fees is not about how much somebody earns, it is about your nationality and your race, and this is discrimination.

BTW you also would pay 10x more in 7-11 for a beer because you earning 10 times more?

before writing such a comment start your brain and read what you like to post and delete b*llsh*t

Good for them.

We should all do more of this when these attractions insist on the outrageous double pricing policy.

Double pricing? This is tenfold.

???

you really want to compare this with thailand?

In Australia everybody who not lives there will pay the same, but not foreigners pay 10 times more.

So you understand why Thailand charge 10 times more? Yes I also!

Because they think they can do it, because they are not educated to understand this is rasism and discrimitation.

And because the workers in the parks can make extra money, because no control who paid what.

Everybody who pays the prices in the parks suport a crime, discimination!

It s the same you are a shopping clothes who are produced with child work or you eat products, produced with slavery.

Yes i want to compare it to Australia to show that this type of policy is not just isolated to Thailand.

No it is not about racism. It is about taxpayers and ratepayer not having to support the costs of visitors. Visitors should pay more than locals; whether 10x is the appropriate amount or not is open for debate.

In a free market, people should be able to charge what the market can stand. With the proviso that price gouging in the times of economic turmoil is not acceptable.

Well, aren't you a fortunate individual. Must be a labouring job 'cause you ain't no teacher with your logic.

Read the extract rom below and weep....they will only get the Tour Companies to hide the cost of admission by adding it to their Tour price,which they then pay the park,no cash changing hands by the Tourists at the National parks etc!

Panapol said he did not want to get tough with tourists so he would hold a meeting with tourist boast and tourist company operators to discuss how to collect the entry fee from their clients.

As the saying goes.....There's more than one way to skin a ...Farang!!! TIT.
