Malaysia Taxi - Alagappan A/L Rajamanikam Eksekutif

Beware, tourists in KL. Remember the name, the taxi and beware. For those who know, Malaysia taxi fare is relatively cheap compared to Singapore, but we paid $15 sing dollars from Mid-Valley to KLCC (No traffic jam, not because of long distance). This asshole simply took us for a tour literally by taking the longer route.

Not that we recognise the roads, but we can read the road sign. We were travelling at the express way and there was an exit named Bukit Bintang KLCC. He ignored it and kept travelling towards the airport direction. I felt uneasy and asked if he was going to bring us to airport. He smiled and replied no and exit immediately at the next exit which is don’t know where.

The taxi he is driving already charges more than normal ones because of the size. He should be making a lot more money compared to the others, but he chose to scoop to such lowly method. Not that we don't understand their plight and bother over this little money. In fact I always gave in one or two dollars extra to normal taxi when haggling the price as I understand they are making a living too and already had a harder time making money. However, I don't think it is ok for people to cheat others purposely.
I hope someone report him to tourist police soon!
