I ever read about Bangkok Taxi which tried to fooled the passengers. But I didn’t think that it happened to me.
I traveled with my 80 year-old & 78 year-old parents. We tried to be careful. We waited in the official Taxi stand at MBK shopping mall. But, after minutes later, the driver started rambling angrily and cynicism at something we didn’t understand. He turned to the wrong direction, pretended forget about the address. He was rambling all the way from MBK to our hotel in Ramkhamhaeng area. He took us around, in the traffic jam condition. Although finally we arrived safely at the hotel, he left bad feeling & impression to me.
Actually the Taxi fare isn’t expensive (eventhough he had taken us around), I would have had no objection to give him extra money, if he’d been nice & polite.
I don’t understand...why in the country which depends 70% on tourism, still has that kind of Taxi driver, although it’s official & registered.
Here is the identity of the driver:
Name: Somdach Termsook
Taxi code: 133161
Call center: 1584
His Taxi is green & yellow color.
Be careful.

Taxi line can be super long at BKK, but if less than 10 km, there is a desk between the lines that is much faster. Driver was clear from outset as to cost to hotel. REALLY appreciated a 20% tip on relatively cheap 200-bhat fare. Taxi clean and rode better than most in Bangkok.

Always make sure the Taxi driver puts metre on before you start your journey as there are good & bad drivers out there.
If they say to you, have no metre or metre broken & l give you good price.

An Interpreter will tell you that this means "you are silly white person & l will over charge you for trip".
Be careful
