Don't fall for fake tourguides

The Scam: Official-looking guides approach travelers in the streets surrounding
Bangkok’s Grand Palace, away from the main entrance. They’ll tell you, convincingly,
that the palace is closed to visitors that morning, but that they’d be happy to take you on a
“private tour.”


Advice: Ignore them, and check for yourself at the main gate. “In many
countries,” says Anthony Dennis, editor of Travel + Leisure Australia, “it’s
usually best to arrange for a certified guide through your hotel.”
