- Negotiate a price with taxi or tuk-tuk drivers before you get in.

- Order a drink for Thai girls in pubs but remember extra THB 100 per ordering will be added to the bill.

- During the night attractions such as Go-Go, Ping Pong and strip shows you will have to order any drinks with the value of THB 1000. 

- Avoid using ATMs of old models, or located in dark places, or when you are drunk.

- Wear a shirt walking along Bangla Road at night, it will help you to avoid police intervention and fines.
