Tuk tuks in Bangkok

The back seat is not built for large westerners. After about ten minutes in a Tuk tuk, your knees and back are really talking to you. Grifters often wait outside popular tourist areas to "assist" unwary tourists. One scam is to say that the attractions is closed for lunch, or guard change, or something; but it will re-open in two hours. They say, "while you're waiting, how about visiting these other sites?" There will be several "museums" en route. The attraction is not closed.
