      1. So Pai was nice right I heard about the waterfall there. I haven’t been there yet 🙂

      1. If you ever come to Bangkok we can take it a step further then crispy bugs. BTW make sure you took all those vaccines haha

      2. I frequent BKK quite a bit but not lately. The place is becoming a mess. Cab drivers are getting less honest and they are destroying the tourism scene there. Check out my other posts on BKK in the search bar. I wrote one post slamming them and directed to the Tourism of Thailand… Obviously, they didn’t reply me…

      3. Yeah a couple of friends were charged 800 bahts for airport to hotel and when they asked the service counter where they write the paper notes for the cab drivers, they said all prices are like that now.

        I personally encountered a few times the cab driver wanted to charge me 200 bahts for a 3km distance. I opened the door and forced stop the car and got out.

      4. Yeah it takes balls to do that. and you got them. always listen to yourself. sometimes they re very convincing a guy told me normal price to airport 1000 baht. I said put meter. he said it will be more expensive for you bla bla bla. but I have avoided a lot of trouble when I go only with taxa-meter plus my mobile GPS so I know he is not driving around the whole city to get extra payed. Good luck MAN
