Cabbies

Did you know that in Hong Kong, you pay more when you put stuff in the trunk of the cab?

Did you know that in Singapore, when you hail a cab after midnight, you pay a 50% surcharge on the total fare?

Did you know that in Seoul, you pay more for an English speaking cabbie?

Did you know that in Hanoi, when you ride a cab, you'll hear the driver press that horn every minute - for no apparent reason.

Did you know that in Bangkok, if you want the cheaper cabs, you go to the line just outside the departure area in the airport?

Did you know that Manila's the only city I've visited in Southeast Asia where cabbies don't give receipts?
