Yes they are a rip off, and yes they try to take you to places where they will receive a commission if you buy a silk suit. BUT - they are also really fun. If you can handle the exhaust fumes, which are pretty much unavoidable anyway in downtown BKK, riding around in a tuk tuk is a fun way to travel between some of the major sites. One time is probably all you will need!
