Essential travel information for Bangkok

Beware of tuk-tuk drivers who want to take you anywhere other than your intended destination (such as a jewellery shop or tailor), as this will add time and hassle onto your trip. If a driver says your intended destination is closed, it probably isn't, but they prefer to take you somewhere they get commission for taking tourists.
