Well said, @HiuMak, but actually a foreign taxpayer does get subsidised treatment at Thai state hospitals as they're Tier 3.
Tier 1 is Thais with a full subsidy, Tier 2 is nationals from neighbouring countries with a reciprocal agreement who get a slightly reduced subsidy, then Tier 3, then non-resident foreigners who haven't contributed who pay a full (but very reasonable) price.
That could hardly be fairer, but for the entitled fairness isn't even a consideration - only unjustified entitlement.
Although my thread is not exactly where to buy, but more of a 'buyer beware' regarding buying online.
Last week I was looking for some hair clippers, the last one we had my wife had ordered, were rechargeable and came from China.
To be fair they have lasted almost two years before my wife's ham-fisted brother borrowed them again to cut his son's hair, only to tell her they had 'broken'.
I thought I'd look for a mains powered pair of hair clippers, to avoid having to recharge them for 24 hours in advance.
I looked on Lazada for some that didn't come from China. Hey presto! A Philips one for 900 Baht.
There was a photo of the box too, showing they were Philips. I asked the seller for the model number just to check. The seller replied with a model number and said they were genuine, not a copy.
I couldn't find the model on the Philips website, but thought perhaps it was a regional model not listed, seeing as they were genuine. I ordered them
They arrived. I plugged them in just to check they worked - fine. I looked at the item. On the back of the hair clippers it said 'Made In China' On the front of the clippers it said Philips.
Then I noticed on the box where it said 'Philips' - it was only a sticker, not put on quite straight either. I called Philips who confirmed they were not a genuine product.
When the inevitable Lazada customer satisfaction email arrived I gave the seller a bed rating and told Lazada they had deliberately lied to me about the product, and to tell them to stop doing that.
I'm keeping the hair clippers, see how they perform.
