Got off the boat and this little Thai man ran over to us and started to show us things on our map proclaiming “I show you for free, no money”. He explained that it was a Buddhist holiday today so all the temples were free and the tuk tuks and taxis were cheap. He put us in a tuk tuk set it all up, told them to charge us 10Bhat each (about 50 cents) and then disappeared faster than arrived. So for two hours Jerry (a 27 Taiwanese guy from New York who I meat whilst cleaning my teeth) and I were toured around in the terrifying Bangkok traffic and the many Buddhist temples for literally pennies.
