Some welcome !, why does Thailand keep shooting itself in the foot,

surely there's enough tourists around for everyone to make a living,

There will never be a real public transport system in Chiang Mai,as

the Tuk-Tuk ,and Red truck drivers will not allow it,and this has been

going on for years.

Yet again - Thai (mafia) protectionism.

Is GRAB illegal in Thailand?

I thought UBER had to leave which left Grab approved.

Grab and Uber merged to form one hailing service (Grab) and was approved by the DLT in 2017 provided their cars were properly registered.

It would seem the simplest of ways to do away with undesirable forms of transportation, 

is to not use them.

It is impossible for SongTails/ TukTuks to see what they have done, 

when people still continue to use their services.

If we continue to support that madness, 

the madness will remain.

There is very little if any value in the service which they provide.

It's the most basic from of service which one can receive, 

and yet they feel as though they are doing us a favor of accepting our money.

I've always been amazed at the BKK taxis on how they think this is their place to decorate, 

freshener their vehicles, or at times, even worship the ride from within.

Riders should be appalled by it all, it's so overwhelming, 

and at times disgusting to put it mildly.

So when they refuse to even start the meter, 

it's like the last straw.

I'm compelled to exit anyway I can, 

as quick as I can.

This is before Grabcab came along, 

now at least there is some form of an alternative, 

but the competition still feel they must get their share or at least their word in.

Harmony is not a way of thinking within this country, 

sadly... It's either their way or get out!

With the exception of the mighty Chinese it would seem.

They appears, especially as of lately to be given a pass, 

bow to get away with whatever they wish, 

and forgiven for all their shortcomings, 

even though none of it would be excepted within their home country.

Taxi and bathbus drivers are jealous at Grab taxi but don't make any effort to upgrade their own service. Instead they keep on ripoff customers and start a fight if you tell them to stop cheating. A bunch of a-holes who destroy the tourist reputation of Thailand.

One of the reasons I avoid taxis, tuktuks and similar transportation as the plague while in Thailand. I rather walk hours in scorching heat than use those bloody cockroaches....

There are however good, honest, reliable drivers of course - but they are far between unfortunately.

If someone picks up a pole to start causing damage thats where i drop clutches and atart running people down. Theres no real police in Thailand and this is the result.

Grab is better. We will never use normal smelly, drug addict driving, non meter using, perverted commoner taxis.
