Yeah what everyone says about the corruption is true,but its a fact of everyday life throughout the world. The only difference being is that the Thai way of corruption is> yeah i'm corrupt more powerful than you and can have your ass locked up for a few years.......so what are you gonna do about it. Whereas in so called Developed nations...corruption is firmly riddled throughout government and large multi-national companies,and done in a more law abiding corrupt way.!!!!!!!!..........take Wal-Mart,McDonalds etc etc. Also look at Emron a few years ago!!!!!!!!!................yeah all you yanks reading this know what i'm talking about NB Oh yeah and all those people who say corruption is disgusting.......yeah it is but if i was on the receiving end who gives a ****,cos i'm sure you would'nt either. So the bottom line is pay your 1200 baht or get in line for the shuttle bus.
