"Beware of the 'Tourist Police'" Government Trade Centre Tip by lazuli

Government Trade Centre, Bangkok: 3 reviews and 1 photos

They are official & they do work for the government but the con is.....
They will tell you that there is a government jewelery sale but it is only happening on that day!!! They will then get you a tuk-tuk & barter him down to 40 baht to take you there & maybe to a Temple or two. There is no such jewelery place, it's a con to take you round the most expensive shops in Bangkok. I suppose it's worth the 40 baht if you've got nothing to do one day, the tuk-tuk guy gets his weekly petrol allowance too.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
