We were in MBK yesterday, when a lovely woman started a conversation with us out of the blue. After quite a bit of chit chat, she mentioned a sale of native Thai crafts at some government center. It was the last day and we should definitely go. Not 5 minutes later, a well dressed gentleman approached us, saying he worked at our hotel (named it), recognized us, and then told us about the same sale. We had mentioned our hotel to the previous woman. He went on to say that there was an advertisement on TV and that no one from the hotel would tell us about it because they could not get a commission....."take a tuk tuk.....not 8 minutes away". Now, my ears pricked up on the words commission and tuk tuk. We went on back to the hotel - I was convinced it was a scam, my husband not so much. So, what do you think? I have to say, both interactions were very warm and we were left with a great impression of the generous Thai spirit. Am I jaded and suspicious?
