Sorry! Test and Go is all about a Thai govt revenue rape scheme  imop!

I don’t support anybody (tourists) who uses it ! I hope tourists go to other vacation spots ,where there aren’t restrictions ,especially the Covid Insurance.As long as travelers use this scheme ,it gives these crooks here incentive to keep it forever.

If they come and get caught up in a forced Q room, som nam na!

The baht is a 'safe' currency. It doesn't matter if it comes in or not. It's held offshore.

Yeah. And any such entry programs have little to do with the speculation and fluctuation of the Baht. 

That's not how it works.

Sorry, but the  relative value of currencies have a significant impact on tourism. 
it is well known that currency appreciation can cause travel and spending to stagnate. 
A weaker currency on the others hand is attracting people from around the world. 
Having a Thai Baht upward give more per USD or dollar 

For Foreigners coming to Thailand or retired they definitely prefer to receive 35.00 THB per USD instead of 30.00 Having the THB going down from nearly 34.00 down to 30.00 will not help ! 

Hope this make sense
