"The usual suspects... Taxi..." Malaysia Tourist Trap Tip by lostgweilo

Malaysia Tourist Traps: 53 reviews and 22 photos


The usual suspects... Taxi drivers!
They are not quite as bad as in some other Asian countries, but they can still be quite annoying. They are supposed to use the meter. But some of them, (like the ones on this picture) will just park outside a popular area, then wait and try to impose a fixed and expensive price on unsuspecting customers. Always insist on paying the meter price. Shame on these people who make a living out of tricking others!

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
