Cigarette prices - inflation


Recommended Posts

I know this might be off topic, but I have just been told by a mate (who is in Pattaya at present) that cigarettes have doubled in price in the last couple of years ... and are now 2 pound (about 90baht) per pack ... so 40 pound for two cartons for him to bring back to the UK.

Can anyone confirm or deny this price hike? If it is true, then inflation is really on a rampage !!

I smoked L & M in October and can confirm they are 58 Baht at 7 - 11.

I have been paying 78 for Marlboro light too. My mate smokes Benson & Hedges Gold and I think he was paying 95 baht from 7-11

Taxes are up.


Cheaper prices can be found when you buy a carton(sleeve) at one of the shops selling wholesale drinks.

Cigarettes have gone up in price over the last couple of years, but they haven't doubled...if you take into consideration the worsening exchange rate, then taking a few cartons of tobacco back to the UK would have cost you half the price of todays prices in £'s 5 years ago.

Nowhere near doubled.


4 years ago I smoked Marboro and they were 50 baht a pack. In fact they were 50 baht a pack for a long time before that too. I think they were 50 baht 10 years ago too.


Now 78 baht a pack so thats a 55% increase over 10 years.


I think there was a large hike about 2 years ago when the government added duty but now thats done the price increases are small if at all.


Like many I have switched to L&M whcih are the pick of the Thai brands and they are 58 baht a packet.

Just a thought, but what happened with the hawkers that used to sell the contraband Marboro, they where always about 15/20 baht cheaper than 7/11 shops.


Never been offered any round the bars on my last 2 or 3 trips.


Have the BIB stamped it out!

    • 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
