You forgot the perils of the footpath too.

 

Don't even mention balconies.

What the heck did this Chinese bloke have on him? Decked out in real diamonds? Platinum-plated sneakers? Treasury bonds in his rucksack? Did the taxi driver also pull all his 24K gold teeth before escaping?

 

On second thought, someone might be trying to pull a giant scam.

 

Or was the Chinese possibly an Indonesian national of Chinese descent and the loss amounted to 3.6 million RUPEES?

 

a Patek watch.

 

And that's why i use GRAB.

The irony of a police chief warning of scams in Thailand.  You've only to check out the stick-ups by RTP round Pattaya to get my drift.

I always felt safe in Thailand.

 

The only thing I am afraid of are police and immigration.

The tourism minister lives in a different world than most of us do. He lives in an Ivory Tower, and is completely shielded from the world we live in. He has no idea about the reality of life on the ground. He just says stuff, in a hapless effort to promote tourism, without even the pale shadow of consequence. As of four years ago, these assets were just a partial list of what he has disclosed.

Calling a spade a spade, hey? Or as a very few select members on here call it 'Thai bashing'. 

 

Nowhere in this world is completely safe. Getting beaten or mugged, etc, in Thailand isn't a big worry for me. Having to deal with a corrupt system is. 

Been travelling for 45 years internationally and never felt as safe in any country as I do in Thailand 🙏😊😊😊🙏

The warning comes in stark contrast to written comments made earlier in the week by the tourism minister claiming that Thailand was "a completely safe environment". 

It's OK I don't think anyone takes him seriously anyway.

a friend of mine who is married to a thai woman and lives in thailand many years, told

us he was robbed, few years ago, by a taxi driver, when he returned from a fligth

in suvanbhumi airport.

he said it was day time, he took a taxi from the upper floor of the airport (not

registered like in the bottom floor).

not so far from the airport, the taxi stopped somewhere, another man got into

the car and they robbed him from all his money, with knife point.

GRAB and UBER are more dangerous than official taxi meters,

criminals around the world found ways to fake the UBER call,

sometimes by robbing the acctual legal UBER driver, and this way

to take advantage of the trust customers put in UBER and rob

or rape them .

About time for a feel good story of a taxi driver returning 4,000,000 to a tourist who left it in his cab. Amazing how these things always balance out.

That must have been one of those Chinese people who don't go out drinking and don't spend money (as according to 90% of TVF posters).
