Actors "600 baht" walk in Chiang Mai ends in whitewash for red taxi mafia

The "rot daeng" mafia in Chiang Mai have been exonerated after a famous Thai actor admitted a "misunderstanding".

 

Guy Ratchanon posted a video-ed walk last week on social media after he said he was quoted 600 baht for a one kilometer ride he refused to take. 

 

The rot daeng (red song thaew) drivers in the city were furious that their service had been disparaged on social media

 

Governor Suphachai Iamsuwan called the actor to Chiang Mai and yesterday - with his girlfriend by his side - they had two meetings in two locations lasting 3 hours. 

 

Reporters were banned. 

 

It took this long to decide that Guy had misunderstood the driver. He said he wanted to go to Doi Suthep Road to do some shopping and the driver thought he wanted to go to the temple of Doi Suthep that is much further. 

 

It has now all ended in wais and smiles.
