-Salee and the unnamed foreign tourist were photographed shaking hands-

And the moto taxi driver was very happy, to help Phukets image

How can there be a disagreement about a BEFORE agreed price, taxi driver?

You accepted the fare by picking the person up and driving him to his location.

Oh, I have an idea: Many tourists pay this, because "it is not much"!

He should have refused the ride, and if not been nice and hoped for a tip. The foreigner should realize the fare 56 baht is not much, but then again it also depends on how far. In Bangkok I take motorcylce street taxi all of the time. although i sepak Thai with them they don't inflate the cost. So sometimes it is 40nbahgt and sometimes 60baht or 80 or 100 baht. But I also tip them an extra 20 or so for being good sports.
