Temple and Rip-Off

Posted by admin On January - 26 - 2007

So this is my first day in Bangkok and my first day in Asia anyway. I decided to visit some of the numerous temple and Buddhas. Later on the other German I met and I went to a governmental travel agency (T.A.T.) – big mistake! Its the first time when I became so conscious about the “two faces of the Thai”. I had a really nice and friendly girl offering me good advice. So I booked way to expensive 10 days on Ko Phagnan (cost 8500baht; around 1000baht are 21Euro). But I had no idea, it was my first time in Thailand and I just wanted to have my little bungalow with beach front waiting for me. If I had known by then what was awaiting me… I booked as well a halfday trip to the floating markets for 600baht, first she wanted 700baht. Of course she cheated me another time. I can just tell you I learned my lesson.
