Thai Officials Investigate a 54% Increase in Foreign Tourists Deaths


BANGKOK – Thailand’s Tourism and Sports Ministry is working to understand and and at the same time address the issue of tourist safety.


The concern comes after Thai Officials noticed a 54% jump in the number of foreign tourists who lost their lives in Thailand past year.


Chadamas Chinmaneevong of the Bangkok Post reported that the Bureau of Prevention and Assistance in Tourist Fraud revealed that 83 foreign tourists died in Thailand last year, up 54% from the previous year. Another 166 were injured, down 160% from the previous year.


These figures were compiled from reports from the ministry’s 10 offices nationwide.

Wait for the minister to say this proves how popular LoS is as foreigners even come here to die.

One step that could be taken is gaoling those responsible for the murder of tourists rather than scapegoats.

Certainly would reduce the chance of these individuals repeating their crimes.

This report probably quoting verbatim from a Ministry press release is predictably ridiculous.

You cannot lump all deaths in together. You need to look at each and every case and categorise and find the reasons and come up with solutions and put them in place.

At best this is just a knee jerk reaction to some stats somebody put together (foreign embassies probably led by the Chinese who seem to be very good at dying here)

However, if 1 life is saved because of this, I suppose it will be worthwhile. I am not confident.

I imagine that 54% of tourist deaths haven't been registered up to now.

How about to stop having farcical investigations and trials into tourist deaths and allowing the islands mafias to go around murdering as they please.
