Chaos at the border as Malaysians continue to flood into Thailand

Is it just my poor understanding of currency exchange, but doesn't that mean the THB has deceased in value against the Ringgit? It looks like the Malaysians will now get 125THB for their 10 Ringgit. Maybe this could explain the sudden interest in Malaysians to travel to the southern provinces.

Correct. We need a new proof reader as well as a writer that can do math.

It is an error in the article. For many years it cost 10 Ringgit to buy 100 baht, now it costs over 12 which means the Ringgit has devalued!

Common sense, now is year end school holidays for Singapore and Malaysia.  Most parents would bring their children oversea for holiday. As the Malaysia economy is not good now, they choose a nearer and cheaper country for holiday.  The RM not only fare poor to BAHT only,it's over RM3 to SGD 1 now.

Wonder if TAT or Thai immigration actually have a calendar that shows Malaysian holidays.  Monday is a holiday in Malaysia.  Also many may be using up what is left of their company holiday time which can be up to 18 days a year.  Both organizations may wish to note this when planning marketing or staffing. 

 

No, no, no! You must not think like that. That is western style logical thinking. Not readily welcome in Thailand. Tut tut tut........

Not the brightest spark in the fusebox but these graphs show how the Ringgit has lost value quite alot over the past year and especially the past month as it has touched a new low.

My milk monitor skills helped alot.

Yeah! This is the way I see it to.

 

If 100 Baht bought you 10 Ringgit before, and now only buys you 8, then either the Ringgit increased against the Thai Baht, or the Thai Baht decrease over the Ringgit. Same! Same! But different!

 

One Ringgit now buys 1.25 Baht where before it bought 1 Baht. So the Ringgit increased over the Thai Baht by 25%.

how do you guys get along with currency exchange in this world?  right now 1 Riggit buys 8 baht or 0.125 baht is equal to 1 riggit

(for the slower guys 1 baht / 8 riggit = 0.125 baht)

Is it really that hard to understand currency conversion?

 

10 baht at the beginning of 2016 would get you 1 Malaysian ringgit.

 

Presently it takes only 8.05 baht to buy 1 Malaysian ringgit. This is a devaluation of the ringgit.

 

For those still confused if a Malaysian was to purchase a drink for 10 baht 1 year ago he would now have to  pay 1.2 Malaysian ringgit for that same 10 baht drink.

 

Despite this the Malaysians are still happy to come to Thailand for whatever reason.

I may be the summit of human thought, but I am the first to admit my numeracy is complete horse manure. However anyone not getting it after this post... Well I don't know what to say.

I know that's a typo, but I think the Thai baht is still alive and kicking   :thumbsup:

Kicking is right... it's been KICKING the AUSSIE Dollar for more than a year.
