    Thai Customs

    I read on another site that Thai customs have been searching and fining tourists who are over the limit when bringing duty free into the country.
    Has anyone any recent experiences of customs at the new airport ??

    at the old airport never heard of any problems
    the thais were as a norm searched and rightly so, the smuggling fuckers they are, but never or nearly ever a tourist

    perhaps a reverse trend in the red carpet "tourist are welcome" policy
    or perhaps the officials have just become more needy, go figure

    now everybody gets a piece of Customs shitty stick

    but why am I getting more and more the "you are not welcome here" feeling?

    We have discussed this before.........

    I was search in the old airport - as well as the other farangs. Still the chances being stopped and searched were very low.

    in the old airport they had only 1 xray mashine per terminal - now there is some 28 of them and some 200 more custom officers. They all have to work and by chance they discovered that farangs are a good source of an extra income.
    not for spamming

    one thai custom I quite like is when a group of peolpe are eating elderest person there should pay.

    the yellow T-shirt thing for the King is also a good one...

    no, I was flying with lufthansa from frankfurt but there were many other flights at that time and customs did not ask first for a boarding pass and passport as they do in the UK. Everybody had to put their luggage on the x-ray machine
