Autobahngebühren gehen in Thailand meist Extra, es sei denn, das etwas anderes vereinbart wurde. Mit eingeschaltetem Taxameter käme die […]

Tipp: Immer ganz nach unten und dort Taxi mit Ticket nehmen. Taxi vom Flughhafen in die City sollte nie mehr als 350-400 Baht kosten. Sparen und wohlfühlen. Wer nicht […]
