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:
