Lucky Buddha in Bangkok ★Beware★ // Siam Ocean World

Lucky Buddha Scam in Bangkok

started just outside Central World. As we were approaching Central world for shopping. A thai

who cliamed to be a manager of Central World approach us and inform us that currently the

attraction that we are planning to visit is having a 70% store wide sale at 2pm sharp. He even

suggest us to a place called "THE LUCKY BUDDHA" which is said to be opened to public only

once in a month. Everything is free for the incense and candles.


He even write down the address for us to navigate with the tuk tuk driver but in the end we

do not intend to visit that place so we proceed to BIG C which is just opposite Central World.


As we are about to cross the road another thai approach us again with the same "LUCKY

BUDDHA" tatics. We find out that this 2 different guys are actually saying the same things all

over again. Which we find it werid and the more we do not believe it so we move on back to

another entrance to Central World.

I have never heard of the story "lucky buddha' in Bangkok, it is a new attraction?

Anyway, thank you for sharing this story.

Quite a number of years ago when we were on our way to visit watpo, some tuk tuk drivers tried similar tricks, first they ask you where you're heading to and then claim that the place is not opened til later, then they offer to bring you to some other attractions first for a hefty fee. Its been going on for the longest time.

If you ever want to take a taxi at the central area and don't want to get in scam. Good way is go to any shopping center's taxi stand to Q for taxi. (yup have to Q sometimes but at least there are ppl at the taxi stand to help you communicate to the driver (some of them dun really understand english) and make sure u get to the right place and also request for meter only - is so much cheaper)
