Taxi meter at Krabi airport? living here since 2011 never saw one and not only at the airport there are no Taxi meter at all in Krabi. (or maybe they just start the service a few days ago as I was in town on the 7th)

He should be charged with damaging the image of Thailand and apologise to society. Of course, what the Thai's image of Thailand is is not the same as the image that others have, once their rose-cloured glasses have been lost.

Come to Pattaya and watch similar antics. No meter used for Chinese  and Russian tourists. Just fork over 200 + baht, regardless of the distance. The same for songtaews acting as taxi cabs without proper licensing.

 

What a sorry example of impotent will by those entrusted to enforce the law

" He has been fined 1,000 baht for his ‘error of judgment’. "

error of judgement ? no error, he knew exactly what he was doing,

and a small fine like that will do nothing to deter him and others

taking advantage of tourists,I think they will call it a business expense.

They have been there for about a year or so.  Yellow and blue taxis, there are about 20 of them.
