How it works:
- At temples/shrines, someone offers you the chance to release a bird for good fortune.
- In most cases, the birds are weak and will be caught again or trained to return. However, a big sum of money will be demanded from you.
Places to beware:
- Bangkok: Erawan Shrine, Wat Traimit
- Chiang Mai: Wat Chedi Luang
