Bangkok Airport/Taxi Scams-Traveling Authentically In Southeast Asia With MJ Klein

My guest MJ Klein shares his Bangkok taxi scams at the airports and we chat about traveling authentically in Southeast Asia. These taxi scams are for the most part easily avoidable either by using a ride share app or being prepared. It also helps to know which airport in Bangkok your flight is leaving from. Just remember there are two international airports in Bangkok, Don Mueang and Suvarnabhumi , and I’ve heard this scam before. Tourist visiting Bangkok asks for an airport transfer and gets taken to the wrong airport. With little time to catch their flight the taxi driver offers to take them to the other airport for $200USD. Or in the case of MJ’s incident they don’t have change, and you’re in a hurry to catch your flight when they drop you off. We also talk about getting off the beaten path when traveling in Southeast Asia, and how to handle situtations calmly. Thanks so much for listening!
