Strange one this. If the tourists had enough about them to organise the trip with the driver, why was no price agreed? There are a lot of baht bus drivers doing charter work (I use them myself in this way occasionally) and surely it is in his or her interest to agree a rate to avoid a confrontation like this. Involving the police and the press is best avoided.

I have just returned from travelling to the North. I have noticed lately that tuk tuks all over are quoting a per person fare, as an example what used to be 20 Baht is now 40 for 2 people. They prefer not to tell you unless you ask for a clarification. They will tell you 20 Baht and when you arrive to pay it becomes 20 Baht per person.

Mmmm, I thought that not long ago the new City Hall inhabitants applied a new system of routes for Baht buses and strictly prohibited baht-buses to be hired for "private" rides. 

 

I do understand that a lot of destinations are out of the regular routes, but then there's the honest and fair charging taxi-meters, right? :sorry:

As far as what's really a "fair" fare for that ride, I'd say 150, not 250

Well....150 is for the mafia-baht-bus driver and 100 is the quality BIB's cut.

Well calculated.

250 baht easily divisible by 8.

31.25 each passenger.

Did the driver have a pile of satangs I wonder ?

Hope the image of Pattaya did not go further downhill with this attempted rip-off.

Attempted and agreed, by the police.

the police told both parties that a fee of 250 Baht was fair.

150 for the baht bus driver after their negotiation fee had been deducted.
