I know they stopped the physical 500 Baht leaving tax , but didn't they just incorporate that into the flight ticket , same as your home Airport taxes

Deja vu all over again.

From May last year
Tourism and Sports Ministry mulls levy for tourists

And then in September
Ministry postpones levy on foreign visitors

The Tourism and Sports Ministry has decided to delay plans to collect a tourism levy from foreign visitors.

Last Wednesday, permanent tourism secretary Chote Trachu said the levy could result in psychological deterrence among foreign visitors and further harm the stagnant sector.

 

All I can say is amazing Thailand.
