Travel Tips - Travel Scams Around The World

This is not a travel journal. This is just a good precaution I accidentally stumble upon on Facebook.

For all travellers out there, be careful when you are at other people's place. I have a friend who really got scammed in Bangkok with jewellery scam. He was told by a fake policeman that particular day was a public holiday and taking tuk-tuk would be free. He and his wife were then brought by that tuk-tuk to 'a temple' but that temple was closed that day. So, they were then lured to a jewelry shop nearby. Somebody already waited for them in front of the jewelry shop, welcomed them, praised them, and lured them to spend a fortune on jewellery that nobody knew was fake or not. They only realized they were being scammed a few hours later.

Scary, huh?

So, let's be careful. And of course, I always pray that God will protect me on every step of my journey.


Happy traveling!

Love is in the air,
