      On a recent trip to Bangkok, we decided to venture out in our first Tuk Tuk ride. We had the travel books and had read up on what you were supposed to do ie negotiate a price before getting in.

      The strange part is though being in a place that is totally foreign to you how do you know what is a fair price.

      /> Well that aside we set about negotiating a price to go to our destination, we were happy with the price of $100 Baht each.

      However once accepted the driver turned to the other drivers waiting in line they all laughed and off we went.

      We reached our destination paid our money and off we went.

      The next day we took a tour and found ...

      • out why the driver was laughing so much.

        The tour guide advised that to go anywhere in the city in a Tuk Tuk shouldnt cost anymore than $50 Baht.

        Needless to say we thought it funny too.

        Mind you in comparision for what we would pay for a taxi here we were still way infront.

        So even though there is a chance you may

        pay more for your Tuk Tuk ride as a tourist, I would fully recommended that you do after all that is all part of the fun of travelling.

        The thrill and ecitement of where are we going having no idea was brilliant.

        So my advice to you if you are ever in Bangkok make sure you have a Tuk Tuk ride high up there on your list of things to do!
