Key Tips
In Bangkok, when taking a taxi, be sure to insist on the meter. If the driver refuses, or quotes silly prices, just walk out and get a different one. If multiple taxis refuse to take you, or you just want to ride it once, you can take a Tuk-Tuk, but always agree on a price in advance. 
In the go-go bar zones, beware of touts who try to drag you into the upstairs bars with offers of ping-pong shows and 100-baht beer. The beer may well be 100 baht, but the "show" you'll be treated to will be 1,000 baht or more.
