Metroblogging Bangkok points to a video interview with a professional foreign beggar in Bangkok. “You know those farang who sit on the overpasses with signs begging for Baht to help them buy a plane ticket or something? They usually look like backpackers, and honestly they usually make me pretty sick. I guess more and more of them have been popping up lately, and this video is of an interview with one in Gaysorn. He makes 1,000B a day, meaning, 30,000B a month.”. Farang refers to a person from the west.
