Police hunting for taxi-driver charging 1,500 baht from Don Mueang airport to downtown Bangkok


The Thailand Tourist Police Bureau reported on Facebook that they had received an email from a tourist called Neils Huisman who complained about a taxi rip-off.

The tourist said he and his family had got in a taxi at Don Mueang airport to go into central Bangkok and the driver had not turned on the meter and demanded 1,500 baht for the journey.

It would normally be a few hundred baht.

He refused to pay such a fee and was then taken back to the airport wasting 30 minutes.

He sent the police plenty of photo evidence such as a card with the exorbitant prices, a picture of the cabby, his license plate and tax disc.

The TPB said the hunt is now on.
