Honest Bangkok taxi driver returns 400,000 baht to Danish tourist

Recommended Posts

well if true  hope the taxi driver was well rewarded

seems to be a few  tourists carrying a lot of cash when they arrive in Thailand 

would have thought  credit cards,  bank transfers were more in order

sorry but he certainly isn't dressed like a guy carrying that much cash... these stories are becoming suspect to say the least....

If anyone in Britain was walking around with 400,000 thb in cash they would be arrested by the police and made to account for it.

Right, he is more dressed for a beach party. 

 

The only reason for carrying that sum of money is if they were on their way to a car dealer and just been visiting the bank.

I paid for my car with cash, and that was the only time, the seller followed me to the bank.

I haven't yet read how much of a reward our lucky Dane actually gave driver Somsri for his honesty. Usually that fact alone is enough for two pages of discussion on this type of topic.

Complete BS as usual ! Exactly why didn’t he go back to the hotel where he dropped them off ? I guess he had to make it public just for the photo shoot 🤦🏻‍♂️ 

He appears as if he could use new clothes for himself just after having showed he’s honesty perhaps 🤔

He had no choice but to return it,  he would have been easy to track down by cameras at the Airport and hotel, I left video camera in a taxi once, only got it back after police contacted my hotel I stayed at got the cab details then went to the cab drivers house and got the camera

Erm....if he dropped them off at the 13 Coins Hotel.....why didn't he simply go back to that hotel to look for them in the first instance?

Perhaps it was they who contacted the airport to find him....and since their trip was recorded, he had little choice.

A substantially different scenario.

My thoughts exactly about contacting the Hotel to locate them

30k maximum per day in most ATMs.
