Please be very careful when choosing a motorbike taxi to get you home, that they fully understand which hotel you want to go to, especially after having a few drinks and needing a ride back to your hotel.
Ask you hotel or resort for a taxi card at reception, whrn going out for the evening.
Stories are circulating around the bars that people are being ripped off by being deliberately taken to the wrong hotel, and then on the return, the taxi driver stops at a dark place where his mates are waiting and yet more money is then demanded in return for safe passage to the proper hotel.
Sad but true. As the area has become ever more popular with tourists, so it has also attracted the bandits too.
If it happens to you, take the bike plate number and report it to the hotel and also the Tourist Police.
SAFETY FIRST. Always ensure that the taxi-bike you are about to ride in, also has all its back lights working. On the many unlit roads around Ao Nang at night, the are almost impossible to see by other drivers until the very last minute.
A cause of many nasty, sometimes fatal accidents.
