If you a Aussie visit Tasmania safe. Too many Aussie travel to dangerous places and never travel there own country. I travelled Australia extensively before going overseas. 

When I lived in Adelaide I met many people always holidayed in Bali but never ever visited another state except airport transfer.

 

Australia is too expensive, can just as easily get dead there too.

Could have summed it in a sentence.

 

Don't ride mopeds in Thailand, dope.

I might be an excellent example of living here for 17 years. 

 

 It's obvious that quite a few longtime posters here are fully aware what's going on and they never have such problems we always read about here.

 

"Does my (bar) gf really love me?" ( And other nonsense questions>>>)

 

It's incredible to see how some people on their holiday behave.

 

  People who've never ridden a big bike all in a sudden rent a big bike and then crash seems to happen way too often. Including GoFundMe PLEASE.

 

Not wearing a helmet and being drunk only multiplies the dangers on Thailand's roads. 

 

  Never get into a fight with a Thai, even when you'd consider it as your right. You'll never win an argument here. Never ever. 

 

Using common sense and "reading between the lines" helps a lot.

 When traveling on a bus, the use of NCA is highly recommended.

 

They have new busses, two drivers with a lot of experience and you very seldom hear of a bus accident where this company was in involved.

 

  Would I walk around in the Bronx, or Caracas in the morning hours with a golden bracelet around my neck and a wallet full of $$$?

Of course not. Why are people doing that here?

 

 Many problems include bar girls who are there to play the caring wife, but she gets paid for it. Prostitutes here are perhaps more likable, and they learn very fast what foreigners like to hear.

 

If somebody never had a woman before and a bar girl then tell him that she loves him too much, that's just the beginning of a never ending nightmare. 

 

  If you don't ride a bike drunk without a license, you're already wise.


  When you understand that prostitutes only want your money and not your company for the next 50 years, you're already wise and clever.

 

 And if you have the ability to differentiate between being a walking ATM, or a customer of a prostitute, you're good to go and an expert.

 

Prostitutes in our countries make the fast cash and it's clear that you only get what you've paid for. In advance.

 

Unfortunately, do many people here believe that their bar girls are so different that they have to safe her from this bad world sent money every month and truly believe that she'd quit her job and is waiting for him in Baan Pee Baa. 

 

 Life's too short to look for troubles in a country where you neither understand what the people say, nor do you know much about their culture.

 

  If you respect others the way you'd like to be recognized, you won't have problems in this country. Don't be arrogant and stupid and people will realize that. 

 

  But if you believe that you've paid a lot of money for your flight and hotel and bought a sort of a right to behave like an idiot, you don't need to be surprised when all goes wrong and you end up badly. 

 

 Too many people leave their countries with a lot of problems. You can't leave them at the airport, and they're all the time with you.

 

 Some alcohol and the wrong people and the chaos is programmed.

 

But not only in Thailand. You can use the girls and have a great time, but don't let them abuse you, or your credit card. Or mom's cash. 

 

Don't fall in love with an illusion how things could be.

That’s because airport transfers are safe and air conditioned.. and .. you can see the world walk past you 😊

Well said. So true. May I add: while you’re in Thailand, go see Isaan, you’ll be out of the beaten tracks and nicely surprised.

Love from Phon Charoen

Film says he was 25, old enough to know better.

"Old enough to know better" extends to knowing when not to say others are old enough to know better after they have been injured.
