There are ongoing disruptions due to attacks in the southern provinces of Thailand where civilians and members of the security services have been targeted.

The political situation in Thailand is unpredictable and sometimes volatile. Over recent years there have been instances of civil and political unrest resulting in large demonstrations and in some cases violence. Most criminal activity is limited to “non-confrontational” street crimes (pickpocketing, purse snatching, jewelry-schemes, tourism fraud, credit card theft). Foreigners have had items snatched by thieves on motorbikes when walking along busy streets.
Western tourists have been victims of vicious, unprovoked attacks by individuals and gangs in Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, and Koh Tao. Attacks have also occurred in other tourist districts in Thailand including Chiang Mai, Pattaya and Krabi.
FAQ’s for Secure Travel to Thailand
Traffic incidents are the biggest danger to travelers in Thailand. Collisions are extremely common, and often result in serious injuries and fatalities. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), Thailand has the second highest death rate in the world as a result of traffic collisions. Travelers with little experience of driving in Thailand are at increased risk due to the challenges on the road.
Thailand is one of the safest regions in South Asia, however due to the high volume of tourists arriving every year it’s a breeding ground for criminals. Opportunistic crime such as pickpocketing and theft is extremely common. Females are also vulnerable to unwanted attention from the local male community and sexual assault is a very real risk. Please read our article Female Travel Safety Advice when Abroad.
Terrorism is also a serious concern in the region; extremist groups are capable and it’s possible they will target areas where foreign travelers regularly visit. Remain cautious to the risk and increase situational awareness. To learn more about improving your travel security please visit www.exploresecure.com
