The action begins as you land with the cracks in the Runway..

 

If you make it you get to pay for the privilege of a safe landing by paying for its repairs on the way out

This increase was announced a long time ago, before the new airport opened and the tax is going to be included in ticket costs from now on as well so you will no longer have to worry about keeping enough baht in your pocket to leave the country. My eticket from Air Canada for my trip next week has the departure tax included in the cost of the ticket. On my eticket it is listed as the Thailand Domestic Psgr. Service and cost me $22.96 CAD. It took me a bit to figure out what it was because it says domestic on my ticket but as my flights are international I finally realized it was the departure tax.

Ok but will they try to get it on the way out too? It being so new, you not knowing what it is..hmm.

The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it?

 

A death. What's that, a bonus ? I think the life cycle is all backwards.

 

You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you're too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work.

 

You work forty years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement.

 

You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities.

 

You become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating... you finish off as an orgasm.

 

It's perfect !

My understanding is that they will no longer be able to collect it on the way out. They will remove the dispensing machines. I am not completely up to date on all of the relevant information but this was my understanding some time ago. I'll be finding out from first hand information soon though.

I think that the reason that they didn't create good infrastructure to collect the tax at the new airport was because they knew that the tax would be collected when a ticket was bought. The crappy booth that they have been using at the airport will disappear soon (oh shit, I forgot that TiT so maybe not!!.. :D )

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6
