胡慧沖 | 31st Mar 2009 | 泰國生活
久不久就會有朋友在自己的Forum中訴說,在曼谷旅行遇到什麼什麼事情很激氣。看來又是時候作出久不久的一些提點。根據顯示,到曼谷旅遊最常遇到的中招事件有以下幾項:

1.帶煙酒被罰
泰國法例規定,每位旅客入侵只可帶一條煙、一枝酒,如多過數目便會被罰。事實上除了超過數目之外,如果幫朋友帶都會充公兼罰款。例如,朋友二人一起入境,朋友甲一人前後腳出替朋友乙帶煙一樣有問題。不要問點解,沒有能解答你,總之就要罰。不想被罰,自己帶自己的一條,就一定無問題。


2.坐的士被騙
其實只要你是遊客,在任何國家坐的士都可能會被騙。泰國的士常用手法有:
用調較過的meter
不用meter
兜路
上車前遇到不用meter的問題,最簡單是找過另一部,其次是報警。﹝但小弟向來怕事兼怕阻時間,故不會這樣做,除非你有時間同佢玩﹞至於上了車發現meter跳快了或兜路,當然方法一又是報警,方法二是調較自己--算了吧,俾多少少都只是100港紙不用,當做善事吧!這種說法會有機會縱容一些不良司機,但你卻不用因此大動肝火不開心。你會揀邊種做法?當然更可以先君子後小人,到步後記低車牌,及找酒店的人與之理論,但不一定會成功。

3.假建興食貴野
真建興英文叫Somboom,假的叫Somboomdee。多了dee在尾,且中文名叫建興好。因他們給了不少回佣的士司機,故遊客一旦上車叫去Somboom時,有時會被車了去假的這間。真的不好彩遇上了,唯一可做的當然是報警﹝只要你不怕麻煩和有時間﹞,其次當自己不好彩,馬上離開現場再去第二處。與司機理論則看你好彩不好彩了……

4.泰好人兜搭
在大皇宮外、四面佛外、CentralWorld的象神對開、Siam Square的True旁邊,都有一班會流利英語的泰人,有男有女,其中Siam Square更有位穿上背有”Police”的jacket,他們會主動向遊客問好,問你去邊,又或者說皇宮今日休息,繼而遊說你去珠寶店。只要你ok,一分鐘之內就會有篤篤車馬上出現送你去,買的當然是假寶玉吧。遇上這些人,說聲Thank You後走開便可以,不要理直氣壯問他點解騙遊客或影他的相,否則得到麻煩的會是自己。

5.拋垃圾煙頭被罰款
有人在街上,尤其MBK對出天橋、Siam Square一帶,因拋垃圾或煙頭,而被一些啡色制服人員捉住罰錢,價錢由數百至數千不等。最佳防止方法是不要做垃圾蟲,那麼你沒做錯,誰都不能把你罰。


6.信用卡資料被盜
這點很難避免,是否說在泰國用卡一定被盜?這也不然。自己在泰國生活多年,也從來未試過發生這種事。相反某年在港簽卡,一週後會發生資料被盜的事。只能說壞人全世界都有,真的看你好不好彩。

7.看真人表演被屈
從自己出道至今,已不斷講紅燈區,尤其上樓的店不要去。但奈何人微言輕,看到聽到的不是全港每一個人。一旦被屈要比多多錢可以點?拳頭在近,官府在遠,只有講數希望可以俾少一些。要避免,一是透過導遊安排,一是不要去。﹝其實在曼谷好玩的夜生活多的是,何必去看這些表演﹞明知山有虎,偏向虎山行,到頭來煩到的都是自己。

8.被旅遊書的內容騙了
市面上有關曼谷的旅遊書多的是,每本的作者都只是為了工作飛去數週。胡慧沖的書有300內容,他多找多100,共400多過自己的。地址電話check對了嗎?真的值得推介嗎?你對泰國有多熟?

那麼自己的最好?其實也不然。自己的泰國助手經常偷懶,替我check的資料也會有錯。加上曼谷變化多多,09-10版的內容,你在今天買可能書中部份店舖已結業。最好其實是在Forum上找資料,書始終是參考。正如自己的,每區所介紹的,基本上不是必吃必做,而是告訴你,一旦住在該區可以有何選擇而已。住在老遠的半島,不必專登坐1小時的士,去食我推介的地方。每人口味不同,感覺亦不同。

胡慧沖不是蘇絲黃,沒有資格去告訴你那間一定要去,那間一定聽執。老土的說,旅遊書等於風水運程書,說好也未必好,說差也不一定差,只可作參考。假若真的有地方想去,不妨上我的Forum www.thailandfans.com/forum

check 一check該店還健在與否,或問問其他人意見,這樣才穩陣。

Hey Roger:
Thank u for these information. No wonder that every time I went to BKK my bf will come to pick me up^^He said that taxi is not the quite safe.

I heard abt ur name long time ago, but still haven't got the chance to watch 「潮遊泰國」, may i ask which channel i can watch and when coz I just moved to HK not long ago. (I lived in mainland China before)

I think you did excellent job promoting Thailand and I really love Thailand now. Part of the reasons is because my bf is Thai. ^^But my parents still have misunderstandings to Thailand tho. Like u said, most people thought Thailand is quite poor. My dad even thought that Thai men can marry more than 2 wives! My god...Don't know how to tell them the truth tho. So I've got lots of concern about my long distance relationship with my Thai bf. Sigh...

Anyway, nice reading your diary here and I really enjoy reading these!!! Su su na ka!
p.s. Where I can learn Thai properly in HK? Thanks v much na ka!

[2] one more addition

Not sure how true but better take note - better be careful. The bets is alwyas ask and don't be greedy! Freebies can "kill".

Dear ALL

Becareful when you have to go or transit in Bangkok airport.

Do not be penny wise and pound foolish. In times for the world financial crises people are trying all ways to make a buck.

Dear All,

My Dept secretary informed on this. Her cousin was detained in Bangkok for
stealing a box of cigarettes in a duty-free shop in Bangkok International
Airport.

He had paid for chocolates and a carton of cigarettes. The cashier put a
packet of smokes into his bag and he thought it was a free pack. He was
arrested for shop-lifting and the Thai Police extortion price was RM30,000

for his release. He spent two nights in jail and paid RM50 for an air-cond
cell, 200-300 baht for each visitor, and RM11,000 for his final release. The
Police shared the money in front of his eyes. On top of that, he was charged

in court and fined RM2,000 by the magistrate and handcuffed and escorted to
his plane. His passport was stamped "Thief". While there, his
relatives
requested help from the
Malaysian Embassy and was told that they are
helpless, as M'sians are victimised similarly daily and letters and
phone-calls to the Thai Authorities are ignored.

He shared a cell with a Singaporean the 1st night who paid RM60,000 for his release. The 2nd night was an Indian national who paid USD70,000.

Mind you this is not in a shag downtown Bangkok but in a duty free shop in
Bangkok's Int'l Airport.

BE WARNED.

Thank you.

Regards,
