    a massive amount ᴡork? I аm brand new to running

    Been there with number 9 in Thailand, I was so furious and refused to get out of the tuk tuk after the third shop, he took us straight back . But to be fair we did see some great sites too.

    O boy, reading through your list I think we have encountered most of the scams! Not that we fell into any one of them. I think we are pretty wary of things like this but there were a few I hadn’t heard about before. So thanks for the overview. Very useful article! It’s not only in Asia though. I think we had the worst in Morocco. They get so persistent and even aggressive. I find people are easier to ‘get rid of’ in Asia.

      Aboslutely, Southeast Asians are some of the nicest people you will encounter visiting. However, many people tend to think that all of them are kind and honest and subsequently fall victim to one of these scams. That was the point of this article. I haven’t visited Morocco yet but I did hear some similar things to what you said. Compared to that, I’m sure Southeast Asia is a much more convenient destination. 🙂

    Very informative! I almost got scammed when I was crossing the border from Malaysia into Thailand. Didn’t lose a penny but still it’s sad that people love to take advantage of tourists, becoming the victim of a travel scam can really ruin your vacation… https://qompanion.my/articles/travel-scams-every-malaysian-could-fall-for-while-travelling-in-asia i also found this article when i was looking for information about this topic, hopefully, others will find it helpful too!
