It was all smiles at Suvarnabhumi airport for the second time this week as an Australian businessman was reunited with more than 500,000 baht he had dropped in a cab.

taxi-driver-returns-australians-moneyDavid Collinson had brought the money from Australia to give to his Thai family. He took a cab from the airport to Mor Chit but didn’t realize he had dropped the brown envelope until he got back to his Thai wife. There was 20,000 dollars in Australian currency in the dropped envelope.

“I never thought I would get it back”, he said, “as he thanked driver Wimon Triphat who drove back to the airport after being contacted by officials there. He found the package on the floor under a seat at the back.

David gave Wimon a reward and, speaking though his wife as an interpreter,said that he hoped he could use this honest man’s taxi service in the future.

Earlier in the week a UK woman got a considerable sum of money back from another honest cabbie who worked the airport routes.
