Malaysia: Cheating Penang Cab Drivers

Blueheeler has a post on the cheating taxi drivers in Malaysian city of Penang. “I still enjoyed Penang, but when it was time to get a taxi, it pissed me off slightly, knowing that all the bloody drivers are out to make more money from me than they should. Today, on the plane home, my wife and I figured that more than 50% of our cash was paid to taxi drivers. If I'm now complaining about getting cheated by Penang taxi drivers, I hate to think how much European/Australian/American tourists get fleeced by Penang taxi drivers.”
