A Japanese man who has made Thailand is home for the last ten years has detailed what he describes as a miserable experience at Suvarnabhumi airport and his complaints have gone viral. He says that Thais should be ashamed of their national gateway and it seems that many agree with his opinion.

japanese man complaints about Bangkok airportOnline Koki Aki posted in both Thai and Japanese “I can say Suvarnabhumi Airport is the disgrace of Thailand, Thai people show terrible service to foreigners at their national airport, the very first entry point to their country.”

Aki made a list of things that he believes are wrong at the airport, starting with the immigration checkpoint where he had to wait for thirty minutes, he also mentions that a taxi driver tried to rip him off by charging him THB 700 to go to Saphan Kwai. He said the taxi stand told Aki to get a bigger taxi and gave him a ticket, but instead he asked for the manager, who only asked him to return the ticket and told him to figure things out with the driver.

“That’s weird. The driver wouldn’t use the meter. This is a decision made by one side. It’s not a negotiation. You accept this kind of rip-off here? You don’t care about these bad drivers?” he complained to staff, who then proceeded to ignore him. Japanese man shaming Suvarnabhumi in Thai goes viral

Chaiyan will no longer be able to pick up passengers at the airport.
