"Getting off the boat" Ko Phangan Local Custom Tip by Teledude

Ko Phangan Local Customs: 14 reviews and 21 photos

  Aggressive selling
by Teledude

You will be handily accosted by a mob of guides, cab drivers and others who want you to go with them to their resorts or use their cabs or whatever. You can't avoid going through them but please just be firm but polite. They are just trying to make money by the only means really available. They are aggressive but there's no need to be rude. Just relax enjoy being in Thailand.
