Try it now! You might be able to get a taxi here cheaper than a flight!

^^This 100%. Works with Motodops as well of course. Although I usually call my regular guy now to come pick me up.

your op was clear.
glue sniffing kids in the philippines known as rugby boys try the pocket grabbing nonsense too. ive try to dissuade them from doing it but then some 10yo kid with a can to his nose tries to stab me in the thighs or arse with a meat skewer.
i run around a jeepney & the girl i was with shouted at the kid but he continues to do it.
the only thing that brought that to an end was the trike driving off with me in it.
it does build the anxiety to awful high levels.

Doesn't sound like the OP is cut out for this place if he can't manage to walk around without getting scared.

Hi , i used the taxi service, used your code and got a discount.


I walked by the Riverside tonight, a farang man was been held by a group of Cambodians surrounded by a crowd about 9pm tonight.

Some Cambodian woman was going off at the spectacled farang.

Police came and took him away along with a young boy.
Not sure what was going on.

Everything was going alright until i got a mototuk tuk ,at the traffic a woman carrying a baby demands money , i didnt want to get my wallet out and snyway a two small boys jump in as well and grab my shirt and pants in a playful way, the tuk tuk driver is laughing and not moving the tuk tuk !! So i decided to get out and he demanded $2 for a fare that was just one street, niw i didnt want to get my wallet out in front of Ma Baker and her two young sins so i just gave him a $5 note i had.
I was really angry with myself for not pushing them out but how can i push kids away?
