Smoked goods into Thailand?

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

What's the wors that could happen?

Not much - 5 or 6 hours 'detained', interrogated and a 30.000 baht fine (no receipt). If you don't have the 30,000... off to the 'klink' until you do (and raise it quickly because it goes up every day you don't pay).

:hattip:

It's OK, it was probably the wurst pun I've ever penned.

For a moment there, I was in a roll.

Possibly, but most Customs/Quarantine officers are not known for their sense of humour. You're flying an Australian flag, you should know that. Ever seen a plane from China land at Kingsford Smith? :D

It's best not to rely on Thai incompetence.
You could be next.

Yeah no problems, I bring some foodstuffs with me every 5 months including sausages on occasion. I did get stopped once in Bangkok with a suitcase full of assorted goodies from the UK but as luck would have it they seemed to have a good laugh about the stupid farang bringing noodles to Thailand. :oops:
Never trust a man who when left alone with a tea cosey, doesn't try it on.
