How not to be a tourist
Let's face it, it just isn't cool to be a tourist. Taxi drivers rip you off & you're the lowest of the low on the food chain. Yet every year millions of travellers fall into the largest trap of looking, acting & living like a tourist. You may score an A for studying your travel guide, but there ain't no smart like street smart.
Don’t assume everything’s cheaper in Bangkok or haggle flailingly. There are places and activities with prices and standards matching those back home if you can afford them.
