Thailand Travel Tips June 25 under armour

 , 2012 | Author: wesleymccormick251 | Posted in Travel
and Leisure
No matter where you go on vacation you always want to be aware of your
surroundings and not do foolish things like flash a wad of cash around or party
too much in an unfamiliar place without friends around. Thailand is no different
in this regard. I’m not saying Thailand isn’t safe for the tourist because it
is.these are just the times we live in.

 

On my trips to Thailand I have been out and about at all hours day and night
in unfamiliar areas and alone but I never felt unsafe and indeed I had no
problems. Even though Thailand is moving along quite nicely on the world scene
it’s people for the most part are poor. The majority of Thais are very hard
working but then there are some that work very hard at parting you from your
money. The money you spend in Thailand on a two week vacation is usually more
than the average Thai makes in a year, and while most are content earning your
tourist dollars there are those that will try and take advantage of you.

 

The first place you might notice this is at the airport. After you’ve
landed under armour on sale , gathered
your bags and headed through customs you will see a sea of people as you walk
out the door from customs and most will be looking to give you a ride. The usual
price to get to Bangkok from the airport is 800-1200 baht and that includes
tolls. The standard price to get to Pattaya is 1200 baht and also includes
tolls. If you haven’t made arrangements to be picked up at the airport then you
have a few options from a private limo to the bus. The most favored option is
the meter taxi. If taking a private limo ( usually a sedan ) ask up front what
the total cost is and if you feel it’s too much move on. There are many drivers
about to haggle with. The meter taxi of course won’t give you a price up front
but you need to make sure of a few things before you agree to a ride. A lot of
taxi drivers will tell you their meter is broken to try and get an inflated
price. If using a taxi demand that the meter is turned on and tell them you’ll
pay the tolls as they arrive.

 

Tip: avoid the sea of cheap taxi touts outside of customs at the airport and
head straight to the taxi rank outside. Make sure the taxi driver uses the meter
and check the meter occasionally during your drive so you’ll be able to gauge if
the fare has suddenly changed. Remember that all meter taxi’s start the ride off
at 35 baht on the meter.

 

Another problem with Thailand taxi’s that comes up is their incentive to take
you to any place other than your destination. Many hotels, massage
parlors under armour clearance , and or
merchants have a deal with the taxi drivers to get customers to their place of
business. The taxi driver in turn receives baht or gas coupons for his part. The
hard sell turns on as soon as you pull away from the airport asking if you want
a woman or have a place to stay or need a new suit. If you have booked a hotel (
which you should have ) they may try to tell you it’s not good or they know of a
better deal. Be firm and tell them to just take you to your hotel. Even then
they will still try and get you to other places. For the most part it’s harmless
banter and the driver is just trying to make a few extra bucks. Tell them no and
they will get you to your hotel.

 

The main modes of transportation in Bangkok is the meter taxi followed by the
tuk tuk ( a three wheeled trike for two ) and then the motorcycle taxi. They all
have incentives to get you to other destinations. The average tuk tuk ride
should cost you 20-30 baht but you’ll hear anything from 50-400 baht. The tuk
tuk driver will tell you he will show you Bangkok for 400 baht or so for the
day. The problem is these guys have heavy incentives to get you to other places
because they make their money that way. On your sight seeing tour of bangkok
they will stop at gem stores, tailors under armour outlet , and
massage parlors. Some will tell you what they are up to and will tell you up
front if you go into the establishment only for a few minutes they will get a
much needed gas coupon or money for gas. There have also been stories of more
nefarious tuk tuk drivers driving you to an unsavory part of town where you are
relieved of any personal belongings you might have.

 

In my experience tuk tuk drivers are to be avoided at all cost. Their main
objective it seems is to become your personal driver and to that end I have seen
them follow their prey around Bangkok, even waiting outside a hotel for you to
show up.

 

Meter taxi’s in Bangkok have the same incentives but usually when you tell
them no they stop the hard sell but being unfamiliar with the territory they may
take the long way to get you back to your hotel or out to dinner at night. I had
been in an area of Bangkok long enough to get my bearings and caught one driver
doing this. Another time I shared a taxi with a Thai woman and she told the
driver off for trying to rip me off. He thought since she was Thai she would let
it slide and help him out. They may also try the broken meter scam and if they
do move on to the next taxi.

 

Tip: You can get across the whole of Bangkok for a few hundred baht. Only use
taxi’s with working meters and check the meter during your drive. If you are
told it’s a few hundred baht for a few minutes drive somewhere don’t be afraid
to speak up and let the driver know it’s not right.

 

If you are ever in a position where you feel you are being taken advantage of
let them know you will contact the tourist police. This alone will usually stop
the problem but if it doesn’t do call the tourist police and they will take care
of any problems you have.

 

Remember to keep your cool and never raise your voice if you find yourself in
a situation where you feel taken advantage of. Calm and collected
