School officials in the Hanka district in Chainat, central Thailand have now upgraded the quality of the daily school lunches for their students after receiving a deluge of complaints from parents.

The story was reported in khaosod.co.th.

The scandal, one repeated too often around the state schools, broke after the students told their parents that only one or two dishes were served by the school each day, and were often inedible. Desserts or fresh fruits were served only occasionally.

Various similar stories have occurred over the years with school lunch budgets being ‘reallocated’ or simply going missing.

But the Chainat students have now told local reporters they were “very happy” about the changes in their daily lunch menu.

“Now we get two lunch menus with desserts.”

Mmmmm, dessert!

Minister encourages Thai hotels to stop price-gouging expats | The Thaiger

The thorny issue of dual pricing has raised its ugly head again, this time with the current offerings for hotels as Thailand slowly winds up its tourism industry again. Tourism and Sports Ministry, Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn, is asking hotels to offer “fair packages to expats and avoid price discrimination”. He said that there are 2 million foreign residents who would be able to travel domestically at this stage and contribute to a local revival of tourism before the borders are re-opened for general tourism.
