Well, get a tub of Vaseline, drop your pants, bend over and customs will take it from there....

Sorry, I am as frustrated as anyone about the wine import situation in Thailand. :)

..and remember that when you purchase next time a bottle of plonk @ 299 Baht...the CIF value was in that case little over the costs for the cork. :)

Good luck, I cannot describe the trouble I have gone to get a decent wine value in this country. But, I do keep trying.

So,I think it's better for me forget my idea to import wine,because in cause I do it,I will pay that wine more than one I can find here in the wine shop.

But Istill misunderstaind how the distributor can get the price lower than mine,because I mind the have to pay the tax and duty like me.

thanks to everybody for your answer
