A Singaporean taxi driver has been heralded as a hero after he returned S$1.1 million (26 million baht) in cash to a vacationing Thai couple who had left the money in his cab. 

Sia Ka Tian, 70, was shocked to find the money in a black paper bag on the back seat on Monday after he dropped the couple off at a shopping centre.

"When I saw the money, I thought, trouble is here. I was sure there was at least $200,000 in the bag,'' the Straits Times quoted the 31-year veteran in the taxi business as saying.
