    A taxing argument

    News, Postbag, Published on 24/03/2019

    » A reader in his March 23 letter makes a fair comment on two-tiered pricing for foreigners. But he then goes on to quantify the government's policy of a two-tiered charging system by saying that some farang do not pay taxes. I would dispute this. I am assuming by "some farang" he means tourists, as all foreigners living and working here pay tax in one form or another.

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 17/05/2019

Recognisable by her use of giant woks over two charcoal braziers, ski mask goggles and exuberant energy when cooking, her shophouse restaurant earned a Michelin star in 2017, becoming the first street food restaurant to do so. The eatery has become a popular foodie destination for locals and tourists alike, who are eager to try her signature dishes such as her stir-fried noodles, tom yum and of course, the crab omelette.

    A better Korean option

    Life, Suwitcha Chaiyong, Published on 06/05/2019

    » South Korea is one of the most popular destinations for Thais -- both tourists and illegal workers. According to the Ministry of Labour, there are 165,854 Thais living in South Korea, 143,169 of them illegally. Such a large number of illegal workers has caused Korean immigration officers to strictly screen Thai visitors. On April 20, a Facebook user shared a post saying that only five Thai passengers from a low-cost flight could get through Seoul, while the rest were detained for deportation. On the post, many comments blamed illegal workers for causing trouble for those attempting to travel legitimately. An unlawful worker defended himself by saying others didn't have sympathy for his poverty.

    Life, Suwitcha Chaiyong, Published on 14/05/2019

    » Bangkok's buses are known to offer a Fast And Furious kind of ride. Years ago, the No.8 was voted worst in the city in the Transport Ministry's Facebook survey, due to the horrible experience. Despite a sudden change in driver and conductor behaviour after the survey was released, many public buses are still notorious for their impolite and inefficient services, as well as poor facilities, among many other things.
