  Begging
by phil_uk_net
 
 

The begging situation in Bangkok is not nearly as bad as it is in certain other countries. With the abundance of food in Thailand I don't think there are many that genuinely go hungry and the Buddhist system does a good job of taking care of most people in society.
The people on the streets that are looking for money are generally not pushy and try to do something to earn your donation.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
