    If the Cabbie says he won't drive you to parts of Bangkok at certain times of the day there is usually a very good reason.
    He knows that you will travel 500 meters in the first minute and then 5 kilometres in the next two or three hours. No-one wants that.
    And where the hell was Biggles.....?....when you needed him last Saturday....?

    A small tip upfront or an agreed overall price guarantees a ride. The most it has cost me is 100 baht on top of the fare, but usually much less.

    Never bothered me in BKK, if a taxi does not want the fare, because there is bound to be another dozen come by in the next few minutes anyway. Now if you could just get a taxi to stop in Perth after 10pm in your first dozen attempts that would become an episode on Amazing Stories.

    If it was a female cabbie I wouldn't be complaining... 555

    I am sure he just had short shorts on...
