Thailand? Thailand's the worst place for ripping people off! Are you sure you've been to Thailand? Example, a shirt for sale in the market; 60 baht for locals, 900 baht for foreigners. True you can haggle the price down, but not too many tourist, or even non tourist travelers have the balls to do that. Thailand is just one great big fishing net set up to trap foreign tourists. The big net containing said foreign tourists is then hoisted up above the ground thus allowing local Thai folk waiting below to catch the dripping money from...you know who.
As for your experience after your accident, you were turned away? This isn't the USA. Why did they turn you away? Did they tell you?
Please, tell us more.

When I got there I was surprised to discover that someone had found my wallet, my ID and my address, and returned it to my home. Pretty damn nice.
(If I could give the OP a little advice though I'd say don't start threads saying that everybody knows how this or that your nationality is. It sounds simplistic and egotistical and that is why everybody is giving you a hard time in this thread.)
