Thailand mulls ID wristbands, curfews for tourists

Recommended Posts

Why not spend the effort on tracking and catching the criminals, rather that tracking people that want to have fun. Rising stupidity will see this country become a tourist nightmare.

The only problems here in Thailand appear to happen in the places most people know to avoid anyway - Pattaya, Phuket and Bangkok.

The 3 areas comfortably make up more than 90%+ of tourist numbers to Thailand.

Who exactly is avoiding them?

Great advert for the country , you need an escort from your own personal bodyguard for a trip down Family Mart to get 20 fags and a half bottle of Mekong

Perhaps you should clarify that remark for the sakes of our American cousins. By getting 20 fags you mean cigarettes.biggrin.png

We have just had the "push bike" debate on another thread. I wouldn't want there to be an unfortunate misunderstanding.cheesy.gif

2 nations divided by a common language.

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 theyre 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.

So we have two unsolved murders currently being investigated a Russian woman in Phuket was raped a Spanish woman in Bkk was raped a body washes ashore in Phuket with arms and legs tied with rope another body washes ashore in samed with obvious blows to the back of the head. I'm sure I have missed something out here.

However we re advised the above is being considered for when we are out partying late drunk or lost....

Is this BEYOND offensive or is this just me ?

I could seriously vomit right now.

Oh please forgive - the Australian boy stabbed in the guts a few days ago in Phuket and the Hansen kid jumped and attacked in Samui by the wang and chang pair I believe it was.

The German gentle man stabbed in Samui who owned the bar.

Still more are coming to mind .....

Whate ever....when ever.....there is crime commited........foreigners first.

Typical victimising a whole nation as there tourist's getting drunk, wearing bikini's or even provoke Thainess lads.

not a word abou.......t, hey ? com'on people, we love the dollars, lets give them a real good time and respect our tourist industry.

NO...it needs an army to clean up house and restore order, if they don't this whole circus is destroying their reputation for them.

I cant believe this, this will destroy tourism in Thailand. I think USA cabinet knew what is coming that why all this warnings but nobody listened. It will get only worse. Safe areas a.k.a Ghettos same in WW II for Jews and gipsies, and as somebody mentioned it is best we get bar code and around arm BIG T. Every day passes i see more and more influence of Army state, may R.I.P. victims that were killed in Koh tao but this is only excuse for repress tourists more and more. I am thinking when somebody from Thailand come to Europe, Australia or USA we should give a big V as visitor and bar code so he dont get lost. This is pure represion and racism. And after 10 years maybe they should give us only bus with big windows bulletproof and put us in same in Jurrasic park to drive us route Pattaya or Krabi to "safe" zone or making some routes.

I bet next time you are out having a beer the street sellers will have jumped the gun and have the wrist bands for sale! With the guarantee you wont have to get visa anymore or do 90 day reporting and of course no one will ever hurt you! As they have been blessed in the temple....
