I know people who have stayed years with tourist visas. They do visit their native countries at least once a year though. I would still rather live in Thailand than any of its neighboring countries or Vietnam.

I could stay there if it was close to the BTS, which is a bit overrated though but makes moving around easier. This line is also less crowded than the Sukhumvit line. The area has looked quite nice with many green zones.
Hey folks,

Im here for a while.


[Mod: Edit]


p.s. I am on the outskirts in "bangsue". Ive seen like 2 white dudes and I dont think many people speak english. Airbnb rent is much cheaper here (as with food etc.) andI just grab to nightlife. pretty decent setup but I did potentially lose a bang as the girl lived far but she seemed tired and was prolly going home for real anyway.

A 21 year old Australian man was stabbed in a Thai club by the boyfriend of a woman he just pinched.


He survived, but it shows how stupidity can get you hurt, especially with the fog of alcohol and cultural differences.

This is stupid and has nothing to do with bangkok/thailand. It could happen anywhere in the world especially on clubs. the girl was on her boyfriend arms i am not sure what he was looking for? If he was looking for trouble then he got it.

i have a 2/3 beers max policy + no drugs. So far, i guess, have kept me minding my own business and staying away from such situations.

Yea that guy was a prick, but no it couldn't happen anywhere in the world. Shit like this happens daily in Thailand.

Shoot your ex/neighbors in day light? Too, daily

Why do you think they haven't found him? Because he is well connected/rich. They have CCTV cameras everywhere, a monkey could identify him after 15 minutes of work.

Wouldn't happen in Caracas? Rio? Detroit? Paris? Sure, there are very safe places in the world but most of the world is not safe if you look for trouble.

point is, thailand is pretty safe but you have to take care and keep away from trouble + authority. It's not a western country, a rich country or a developed country. It just has a great cost/quality of living and easier girls. that's why people move there.

'daily' is a bit of an exaggeration. Thailand is plenty safe if you're not a dumbass (like anywhere?). People aren't getting shot daily in broad daylight and getting away with it.

It's a ridiculously corrupt country but police aren't just taking bribes for ignoring murder, like they would for other things

That said there are ways to avoid jail for things like this if you've got enough money and know-how.. scary stuff. Don't be an idiot
After a quick Google

- Thailand highest reported rate of gun-related deaths in Asia
- triple of Cambodia
- 50% more than Philippines
- I found number "2300 deaths in 2015 report" so yes, daily

I'm not saying it is horrible, dangerous place. But you are more likely to die in Thailand than anywhere else in Asia (let's not forget #1 country in road fatalities).

Just saying that "could happen anywhere" is bullshit argument

That's not very useful. First, Asia is way safer than the western world. A quick google search shows 2015 US homicides at 15.000. So worse or on bar with the Thailand.

But I don't buy these reports for the simple reason: It's a big country and the problem is not equally distributed. You can have an overall violent country but violence is distributed unequally between regions. Even regions of the same city. So as long as you keep inside the 'safe zones' you are fine.

In my part of "west" it has been 65 homicides in 2016. Cherry picking doesn't equal the whole picture.

Also, under-reporting in the US or other Western countries isn't as likely as in corrupt Asia.

2300 was more than I expected, but you're right it doesn't tell the whole story. The crime stats are also hard to come by, and I'm not entirely sure how accurate they are.

My thoughts are it comes down to what you're involved in. More dangerous than a western country if you're around things that attract violence.. less than or equal if you're not.

Sleep with a guys girlfriend or walk down dark alleys alone and you have more chance of getting stabbed here than you would in the US.. but if you're not outright pissing people off you don't have much to worry about IMO
Garbage. Thailand is much safer than any western country I've ever been to. Paris, London, NYC, Chicago (hah) all much more dangerous than Bangkok by any measure.

I have spent about 6 months in Wongwian Yai......not much quality in that local area and what you do see is not receptive to pickups.

It's only 5 stops to Patpong or 7 stops to Siam on the BTS.

Good food, Cheap area to live.
I can concur with above info...

I am here in Bang sue.... and while its amazing to have a cheap fresh nightmarket, fresh Tesco Lotus, I am in no way banging sue here.

It was an Israeli that did that stabbing, he managed to get on a flight back home by the time they identified him too.
JJH that's BS. Maybe you were raised in some deliverance type village so big Bangkok seems dangerous to you. But it's much, much safer than cities in the west, let alone Cambodia or the Philippines.. The road accidents I can agree with, but as far as violence you are completely off.
Yep, never felt unsafe anywhere in Bangkok. It’s a peaceful Buddhist culture and Thai guys are usually pussies.
Location for logistics is probably the most important thing about BKK. ABC! And to do that you need volume. I have a crap hotel but I like my location because I have access to so many prime areas. Shit I even have a Starbucks outside my door.

the only place with obvious crime that I found so far was the royal palace area (that compound with all the golden buddha etc.). pickpockets and other petty crimes happen every single minute there.

There are signs everywhere in the tourist spots - beware of pickpockets.
Must be rampant.

This time around I booked wrong location. No girl (that I want) wants to visit my area. So workaround is to meet them 2 stops away and taxi back. Bangtown ever since. Lesson Learnt.
Yes logistics is extremely important in Bangkok. The best is having a condo in Thonglor (or other cool area) with a private tuk-tuk. When the girl arrives at the bts you can just call the tuktuk to drop you there, then walk the girl straight back home in a decent street. It will feel natural unlike in one of those subpar areas like onnut (what kind of guy would want to live there seriously, it reminds me of Vietnam), where your ears are aggressed by the noise and you must dodge the scooters everywhere. Thai girls are much easier when you live in a nice area and condo.
