    Top ten things tourists do that are f**king annoying



    We've had enough threads on what the Thais can do to piss us off, now lets take a look at what tourists do that get on my tits.

    1. Travel to Bangkok with baby and a pram / pushchair and expect the pavements / sidewalks to be tailor made for them. Nothing against travelling with kids, but this isn't a civilised city. What did you expect?

    2. Speak perfect english and not pidgeon english to a peasant-Isaarn-street vendor when asking where the nearest hostel is. Use yer f**king brain, dumbass Chris from Exeter and Jill from Bristol.

    3. Sit around on the pavements drinking beer and smoking around Khao San Road (or anywhere) proclaiming that everything is "so cheap" here.

    4. Making your second question "Where you from?" after asking me if the Skytrain goes to Siam.

    5. Handing a 100 baht note to a beggar dragging himself along the pavement.

    6. Asking at the top of your voice "Where's Patpong?" to the nearest taxi driver while in Siam, thus living up to the image of the stereotypical farang that all the locals think you are anyway. Stupid muthafuckas.

    7. Not eating the fruit from street vendors, because you are terrified of getting food poisoning. It's not the refusal to eat it that gets on my tits but the talking about it loudly and wanting to take a picture whilst standing a metre away from the vendor, blocking my path on the sidewalk.

    8. Being surprised that expats actually live here.

    9. Assuming that University girls in their uniforms are schoolkids and giving me dirty looks.

    10. Erm I've exhauseted my brain capacity. Down to you lot.............

    i think most folks here were a tourist in Thailand at some stage, and some still are.

    No-one knows everything in a new country, its all a learning experience

    give them a break.


    oh and you deserve the dirty looks you filthy perv

    1. Telling regular customers and the owner in a bar to go home at closing time because they've been asked to finish up, telling us the 'ladies' want to finish up and go home.

    2. Wearing shorts and sandals in the CBD of a major capital city.

    3. Eating in McDonalds then using the excuse that they only went in there to use the clean toilets.

    4. Wearing Red Bull, Carlsberg and other assorted singlets.

    5. Accusing single gentlemen of being dirty perverts but going along to a red-light area 'just to see what it is like'.

    6. Treating the LP guide as a bible and believing every printed word as if it were the word of God himself.

    7. Continually telling us long term expats how "wonderful the people are" and "how fascinating the culture is".

    8. Asking "where can we watch the football mate", or even worse, the rugger.

    9. Telling people they "lived in Thailand" because they were here on holiday for a couple of months.

    10. Falling in love with the first bar-girl slagdog they shag.
    Mortals you defy the Gods, I sentence you to travel among unknown stars, until you find the Kingdom of Hades, your bodies will stay as lifeless as stone.

    Finding the biggest and loudest rental motor cycle in Pattaya and roar around the streets as fast as they can go and as if they own the place. Normally with no helmet on, no shirt on and think they are so cool.
    Wankers go home.

    I hate the Indian tailors, they sit outside their shops and hassle everyone, they aint got work permits or anything like that so they are tourist scum aswell, now do I dress like someone that is looking for a 3 piece suit and silk shirts and some ties? Like fok I do, so why do these foks keep hassling me? Maybe they can see the potential in me fok if they knew how lazy I was they wouldn't bother, Or maybe they think I am some superstar, well I thought I would throw that last one in for a laugh, nearly had a fight with one of the cnuts at the made in Thailand market a few weeks back, I was stocking up on my normal 100baht shorts and tshirts and this Indian guy shouted at me about his suits, I just ignored him, he then called me a "foking cnut", I have to admit I was in abit of a quandry, had a real lot to do but didn't want some little Indian getting away with this sort of stuff, sadly i let it fall away as i just didn't have the time or inclination, lets just hope I don't turn into a poove

    I don't know why they bother. Perfectly good suits can be obtained from perfectly reputable clothes shops in perfectly reputable malls.

    One of these men told me I "had nice trousers" as I walked by once. If he'd had a closer look then he would have seen that my right trouser leg's turn up had come apart and I have large parcel tape holding it together on the inside, I haven't had the time or inclination to get it sewn up.

    Talk about look before you leap. I should have shown the c*nt. I doubt he'd then think I could afford one of his suits for 300USD.

    These ads are no help:

    DJPat, are you at a bad point in your life or something?

    You seem to be pretty miserable and only start threads that look down on other people.

    Maybe you could find help somewhere.

    I would hardly go as far as to say it was disgraceful.

    Entertaining to witness such harmless inexperience, and I'm sure the bargirls don't mind.

    Many locals actually do have impaired hearing.

    Not so strange considering their indifference to sound pollution and propensity for maxing out every sound system no matter if they are standing 0.5 meters away from the speaker.
