TV has been taken over by the lowest dregs of farangs that hate all thngs Thai in order to make themselves look superior. What they don't know is their comments actually make them look stupid and narrow minded which is the more accurate description. Thailand would be better off reading the comments on Tv and deporting the daily critics who contribute nothing but BS to this country. Bad guys out

The fines for fighting are totally unmotivated - the yank doesn't fight at all and the Thai like a pansy.

I was in patong on saturday.

They wanted 200 THB from the beach (patong seafood) to jungceylon.

Its a 1 minute drive.

I was too exhausted to walk after running around looking for my friends phone in the midday heat.

 

The entire conversation was in thai.. I said paang maak song loy etc.. Tried to get it down to 150.. Nope... 

 

Good news for everyone living there: there's an app called grab and it works really well on phuket. We have been here 4 days and already saved around 2000 baht compared to the prices stated in hotels etc. (From phuket town to patong, 900 thb.. With grab 330!) etc..

 

God they deserve uber on phuket as well.

Where was the fight? the vid shows the  American (who looks handcarts) trying to undo the Tuk Tuk drivers shoe about 5 seconds in, after Mr Tuk Tuk tries to land a kick in but defo no fight... And where was hotel security while this was taking place... As said, american paid 2000B and everyone is happy (we all know the Tuk Tuk did not have to pay, in fact he prob got a cut of the winnings...

very true...all the tuk tuk drivers towards farangs are living monuments of integrity, honesty and highly customer service oriented, who give a memorable image of Thailand, just like the Bangkok Taxis starting from the Air Port...

I do not use tuk tuks, period, no meter, no ride, plus a taxi is safer, more comfortable, usually cheaper, and has ac. I use cycle taxi's before a tuk tuk.
