Bangkok to make taxi drivers ‘ambassadors of tourism’

Taxi Drivers#Bangkok to make taxi drivers ‘ambassadors of tourism’

Bangkok Administration plans to make taxi drivers the “ambassadors of tourism” to help build a positive image of Thailand and to advise tourists on exotic trips around town.

Governor Sukhumbhad Paripatra handed out certificates to 500 taxi drivers who passed the official “Taxi Driver’s Service Training Program” at Rajabhat Dusit University Friday.

The governor said the taxi drivers are the first people most tourists see when they come to Thailand, and hopefully they will use the knowledge they received from the training program in their jobs to help boost the image of Thailand and become ambassadors of tourism.

Hopefully, tourists will be taken to places they actually want to go, not the sneaky bars that give taxi drivers commissions.

The program taught the importance of road safety and customer service, topped off with basic English, Matichon reported.
