"Do I take a TUK TUK around Bangkok" Thailand Transportation Tip by LimorSchwartz

Thailand Transportation: 413 reviews and 311 photos

When reading about Thailand, they definitely talk about the Tuk Tuks. Well, I have had a local describe them as "Mafia".
You already know that they will take you to shopping stores to get a commission. What they actually get is a coupon for gas.
If you are not in a hurry, which if you think about it, taking a tuk tuk will be faster than foot anyway.
When negotiating price, there is a way, where you can basically get a full day going around a tuk tuk without paying a dime.
Agree that they can take you to 2 or 3 places where they get free gas, and you will only pay 20BHT.
In my case, I ended up not paying a dime.
