"Tuk-Tuk Drivers" Thailand Tourist Trap Tip by Spach

Thailand Tourist Traps: 173 reviews and 73 photos

Upon haling one of these drivers the asking price for your destination may be too good to be true. These drivers will try to convince you that you need to go by one of his suggested shops before your requested destination. These shops give the Tuk-Tuk driver money or gas coupons for taking you there. These shops will harass you until you buy something. It's not worth it. Tell the Tuk-Tuk driver your destination and tell him to go straight there and I guarantee that his price will double.
