Pattaya: Rogues still ripping off tourists for parking near Walking Street, reports Thai media

Recommended Posts

I dont mind paying a few baht for someone to look after my car. This is common practice all over the world. It helps poor people survive.

tourists felt obliged to pay in fear that their cars would be damaged if they didn't.

you could say that about most in Pattaya or Thailand for that matter.

Most of the world really ... 😉 ..... Human nature .. its how we all have survived.  Some countries 'sound more sophisticated about it' but when the chips are down ... its the same the world over in general me thinks...

And when they get into their  cars do they stay so unselfish

NO! I've always said that Thais are great face to face but once they are behind the wheel, they switch that off and become some of the most selfish drivers I've ever encountered.

Pattaya is a tourist destination, therefore, normally it's tourists (farang) getting ripped off.  Due to Covid, there are no tourists here, so statistically they are now ripping off more Thai's.  

 

It wouldn't matter if it was a Toyota Camry, or BMW, driven by Thai's, these guy would have tried it on.  

 

You ideology that it's "perceived wealth" is not correct.  This crime has obviously been sanctioned for years, and anyone parking any vehicle there will pay, rich, or poor, perceived, or not.
