Apparently nobody can tell anybody NOT to do anything here and you might be risking your life if you do. I don’t know WHO she is but probably someone with some power or she wouldn’t even consider it, someone who lived overseas maybe also?  I would certainly appreciate it if that was my dumbass son riding on top of there ....if someone stopped him.

 

That is why tourists do things like this, nobody ever says no here ...most they do is say “up to you” and even fail to warn people of obvious risks ...even when you ask.  Is it safe to do xyz? Yes, of course ...mai pen rai, no problem ...you might be dead at the end of the day but that is no problem for them!!

And no problem for me.

How old are you? I grew up in the  70s

If only you knew what our kids got up to..

 

I had a ball riding on the  top of dads with my mates  car at 70 mph drinking beers but went home all innocent and charming.

Are you drunk?  Glad you survived all that and had fun. Do you do everything like it was the 1970s now?  Avoid all safety features in cars ...only drive cars from that era to be authentic and keep your risk factor going?  Avoid all medical advances since then?  Etc, etc ...keep the logic going if you can.

Completely normal behavior from the Khao San Road/Full Moon Party morons. Shut down Khao San Road and the Full Moon Party end of all these foreigner problems.

The majority of foreigners in Thailand have no common sense . About as dumb as a brick.

Don't be so hard on yourself. I think of your reasoning as comparable to a sack of hammers. :thumbsup:

The driver allowed it in any case.

Of course he did as they probably paid much more than 20 baht/person. (un) fortunately no accident happened, wouldn't have lost any sleep if it would've though.

Not much else to do in ''Chiang Mai'' these days, other than breath in toxic fumes.
