Mia Noi's don't have a husband, that's their brother.

That must have been one of those Chinese people who don't go out drinking and don't spend money (as according to 90% of TVF posters).

About time for a feel good story of a taxi driver returning 4,000,000 to a tourist who left it in his cab. Amazing how these things always balance out.

The Thais will pay some Chinese bloke with many missing teeth to take pictures while claiming a taxi driver returned 18 million Baht he accidentally forgot in the taxi.

Or perhaps the story, like most here in Thailand, is inaccurate. 🤔

Well that has to go down as one of the most stupid statements ever uttered, flying in the face of all of the evidence and statistics as it does. One wonders whether it is pure idiocy, or the ability to tell outright falsehoods with a straight face that gets these people the job.

The safest country I have lived  drank  caroused  partied  wanderd the streets late at night..m in..

more than 60 countries.

The UK and most of Europe is really violent and the USA is off the charts. Thailand very mellow.

Or was the Chinese possibly an Indonesian national of Chinese descent and the loss amounted to 3.6 million RUPEES?

Indonesian currency is rupiah (US$1 = 14,151.1 IDR. so 3.8 million is about $268), whilst 3.8 million rupees is nearly $53,000

Anyone who goes out and gets that inebriated is irresponsible. There isn't a country on this planet where you are not an easy mark in that condition.  I have lived in Thsiland for years and never feel my safety and possessions are in danger, but I also keep my wits about me.

You forgot the perils of the footpath too.

 

Don't even mention balconies.

From what I have seen in Jomtien footpaths are just a smaller road for motorbikes ! This must be correct because the motorbikes travel in both directions all day and night RIGHT IN FRONT OF A FULLY MANNED POLICE BOX !

What the heck did this Chinese bloke have on him? Decked out in real diamonds? Platinum-plated sneakers? Treasury bonds in his rucksack? Did the taxi driver also pull all his 24K gold teeth before escaping?

 

On second thought, someone might be trying to pull a giant scam.

 

Or was the Chinese possibly an Indonesian national of Chinese descent and the loss amounted to 3.6 million RUPEES?

and how can he be sure that is was a taxi-driver, maybe the car unloaded him in front of the destination he had asked for.
He then passed out and someone else "found" a bag beside him ...

What he basically means is “don’t trust a Thai “ of course he didn’t word it that way

If you are going to try to be a smart <deleted>, at least get it right. The Rupee is Indian currency, the currency of Indonesia is the Rupiah
