Thai nightclubs are infamous for their scams! There are stories of people getting scammed and not being allowed to leave the premises until they pay a huge bill. So, it is best to avoid bars and night clubs in shady areas and it is recommended that you only visit the ones with a good reputation.
Attractions that fund animal cruelty

Agreeing for a flat rate with a taxi driver is a surefire way to get scammed. So, insist you, driver, to use the meter and it is illegal for them to refuse.
