Safety and Precautions for Indians
Thailand is a fairly safe country. However, owing to its large influx of tourists- there are a couple of travel scams and petty crimes you need to be wary of. Also given that Thailand is actually a Kingdom, there are some rules you should be aware of and we’re here to help you with just that. After all, we want nothing to really ruin your holiday. 🙂
- Avoid the tuktuk drivers in Bangkok. Especially if they’re being over friendly or too pushy! Some of them will lure you in by saying they’ll take you around shopping. Don’t listen to them, plus they’re most likely to overcharge you. Additionally, if they ever say so and so temple is closed, don’t believe them! It’s a scam.
- Similarly, don’t believe anyone who says they’ll take you to the Lucky Buddha Temple in Bangkok. That too is a famous scam, usually by tuktuk drivers and scam tour guides- who will probably lure you into buying fake gems later.
- The road traffic can get a little chaotic in the cities. In fact, Thailand comes second in road fatalities per capita in the world! In case you’re going to rent a scooter to roam about, be very careful (and please wear a helmet!) and make sure you have a travel insurance that can cover you in case of any unforeseen circumstances, including minor road hiccups, own vehicle damage, personal accident, etc. (and yes, we do cover them all!)
- If you’re going out drinking, be sure of who is making your drinks and be especially careful in tourist heavy spots. There are many travel scams of foreigners being drugged and robbed at bars and clubs.
- If you’re looking at putting together a vlog or travel video using your drone, be careful as there are several restrictions in specific areas on flying drones and you may need permission from the necessary authorities for the same. Moreover, you’ll need an insurance to protect your drone, and an approval from the Civil Aviation Authority Thailand (CAAT)- which can take up to 100 days!
- Avoid red light areas and even if you’re going there, do not take photos (it’s prohibited in most areas!) and stay cautious of pickpockets and misleading Thai massages, amongst many other scams and rip off tactics that are common in these areas.
- Don’t talk about the King as he’s probably one of the most respected figures in Thailand and even considered as God to many. Talking about him is almost taboo and can get you in a lot trouble with the strict Lese Majeste laws!
- Don’t litter anywhere. There’s a cost for it, especially on the beach! If you’re found littering, authorities in Thailand could fine you between 2000 THB to 100,000 THB (INR 4000 to 2 lakhs!) or you could even face some time in prison!
Smoking is banned in many beaches and public areas, so be careful! Additionally, Electronic cigarettes/vaping have been banned in Thailand since 2014.
