Because Thailand (35 mill.) has proportionately more tourist visitors and foreign residents than Cambodia (5 mill) and Vietnam (13 mill.), plus Thailand is known as beach vacation spot whereas Cambodia and Vietnam less so, Laos even much less so (just google Laos beaches)! 

 

Btw, do you follow the number of tourist deaths in those countries!

From the OP:: found dead on Mae Ram Phueng beach. I've been swimming at the beach many times, IMO not dangerous to swim, maybe the deceased had a medical problem.

Jeez, how many foreigners have been killed/died/committed "suicide" in Thailand already this year?

There seem to have been an awful lot already!

Planning a holiday to Rayong after my busy season for work and the GF is keen to get a place with a big pool as among Thai's at least the beaches in Rayong are considered dangerous, she doesn't want the kids in the ocean there.

 

edit: to clarify she's talking about currents etc. and folks drowning when they get in trouble.

If he was a Chinese tourist then it would be more understandable but Aussies are usually savvy and strong enough to not get caught out.  Whatever the cause it's a life lost. RIP
