Thailand mulls ID wristbands, curfews for tourists

Recommended Posts

More like red concentric circles with a big dot in the middle on our backs.

How about a yellow T on our coats?

This is what they come up with when cultural restraints prevent them from saying the truth, a Thai may have murdered people, the police cant solve the crime, we don't really care, etc etc.

Of course a computer network worthy of the NSA to track all tourists will be rolled out soon, or maybe later.

For a minute I thought this was April Fools. Does anyone in their right mind think that people will come to Thailand as Tourists if they thought they had to wear a wrist band or an electronic device.

Someone in the tourist ministry's are off their Rocker.

If I understand, fully, the tourism minister... if a tourist doesn't wear his/her wristband, doesn't stay inside during curfew, doesn't wear his/her tracking device, he /she will be entitled to a number of extra benefits such as: rape, murder, theft, etc.

Adding insult to injury, he/she will be held fully responsible and be prosecuted for not respecting the law.

How nice!

“When tourists check-in to a hotel they will be given a wristband with a serial number that matches their I.D. and shows the contact details of the resort they are staying in so that if they’re out partying late and, for example, get drunk or lost, they can be easily assisted,” Kobkarn said.

or - how the Thai government visualizes the typical tourist.

I love these own goals.

This is ridiculous pairing tourists with minders........ their on holiday why on earth would you come here if you need a minder and have to wear a wristband. Instead of blaming it on the stupid tourist who need a wristband and a babysitter as they think why not clean up the crime instead. Wouldn't its ring alarm bells in potential tourist if they are being supplied with I. D. bracelets especially families thinking of visiting.

Un-Fing-Beliveable!

Why not tag known criminals and low life scums who are living like a parasite over tourists in these areas?

Agreed. However, they are saying, in no uncertain terms, that they cannot or will not put bad guys in jail. So we must be tracked, and call for immediate response.

Wristbands would of course be a Crazy idea , as it would Highlight the Tourist and potentially cause more trouble ,

this point has been made prior .

Microchip everyone , Citizen and Tourist ..Might help with quick ID , but will not achieve much else .

Want to destroy tourism ..completely :( ..Run with this idea .
