There are so many ways to come into harm's way here, especially for those holiday hero types that want to blow off steam but forget where they are.
Safety first here, remember, as cynically always. The cops are nothing more than a mop-up squad....and it's a free-for-all for everyone else.
It would be interesting to actually have real figures released about how many foreigners of all types perish here in one way or another. Never gonna happen though as I bet it is way too high.
Thailand is a very dangerous country and you definitely have to keep your wits about you here. Most foreigner deaths here are either ruled a suicide or a blamed on the foreigner for just being here.
Thailand is still in the 21st Century very uncivilized and third-world.
And very very few foreigner deaths are even reported, the vast majority go unreported.
