At least he rewarded the driver with 200 euros (B 7,500). A decent reward, not quite the 10% expected in most western countries.

What?  an honest taxi driver in Phuket ?  There's always a first I guess.

Maybe the driver was afraid the black bag contained a bomb or anthrax so he took it to police to open instead.  Or perhaps he was looking for a publicized deed of merit.    And 10% is an insult in the US.  Try 20%.

Because of all the hassling going on with the Thai Immigration chaps asking to see cash!!!..

 

Hope this remarkable van driver gets to keep the full amount and is not racketed after the press leaves, by the greasy looking eyeglassed cooper who is passionately eyeing the 100 € bill!!!
