    I am a chain vaper and use only sub ohm tanks direct hit which means going through a lot of juice.
    So when buying juice price is always important.

    I have noticed rather interesting thing, which is Thai made juices always more expensive than Malay and even more expensive than well known US brands.

    Is there any reason why that would be the case, anyone can explain and how does Thai made being so expensive justifies it?

    Even the bottles, packaging and stickers, Thai is just plain bottles, very not pretty(if thats the right word to use), no color, no boxes and yet double the price to Malay and as mentioned some US brands.

    Perhaps the individual components (e.g., base, flavors, nic, etc.) are more expensive here. There's also the "risk" factor as well.
    Just a guess. ;)

    Have thought about all the points you had mentioned and while it does make sense, in my opinion does not justify high prices to complete with known brands of Malaysia or US.

    Its like someone selling a no name sportscar for double the price of a Ferrari because it it cost them more to make.

    Unless quality is superior then yes may be, but i honestly do not see the superior quality when they can not even get nice packaging

    Beside what is mentioned, then legal mass production help being able to keep cost down a lot. Also Malaysia (US too) as an example have flavor manufactures which got vaping as focus in their flavor production lineup, and some of the best VG comes from there (Thailand produce good VG too) so no import fees, tax, vat, shipping and so forth.

    All that being said, product presentation does make a difference and a label does not cost a fortune... designing a label on the other hand can cost a fair bit if one does not posses such skills or experience.
