DO YOU NEED BODYGUARD SERVICES IN THAILAND? IT ALL DEPENDS ON YOUR GOALS
Green. The most significant portion of Thailand is colored green on the map of the official Foreign Travel Advice issued by the British government. Only a small section in the south (Pattani, Yala, Narathiwat, and the Songkhla province) is indicated orange, where it is advised against traveling for foreigners due to conflicts of a racial and ethnic nature.

Thailand is a versatile country for traveling (especially for leisure purposes). For many people from all over the world who want to go backpacking through Asia, Thailand ranks high on their list. It is famous for its resorts and bustling cities, but holidaymakers also spend time on the water, in the national parks, or a combination of these. Besides leisure, Thailand offers business opportunities in the travel or catering business, real estate, and health care, for instance. And let us not forget about the food.
THAILAND TRAVEL WARINING
As far as safety is concerned, Thailand is one of the safest Asian countries to live, work, and reside in. However, it would be best to consider that facilities and services (infrastructure, public transport, health care, etc.) do not meet Western standards. That does not mean you will not enjoy the luxury accommodations and the comfort of the country’s hospitality.
A few aspects to take into account when you prepare to fly out to Thailand include:
Criminals come in all sizes and shapes, and they do not only target the rich and famous. Opportunity makes a thief, so be a clever and seasoned traveler by not flashing your valuables, save copies of your travel documents in a separate location (e.g., in the cloud), avoid using public Wi-Fi, and password-protect your smartphone and computer devices. Stealing your identity can cause problems in the long-run.
In recent years, several terrorist attacks have been carried out in the capital and other regions. This involved bombings and throwing grenades in public areas. Beaches, places of interest, and international meetings (e.g., conferences) could be a target. If you come from a country whose military is involved in the Iraq, Afghanistan or Syria conflict, be especially careful. Follow the news carefully and gather local advice.
There are a few law-related issues that you need to take very seriously. Using, selling, or having any type of (soft) drugs in your possession, even a tiny amount, can result in imprisonment. The risk of having the death penalty hanging over your head when you are found guilty of possessing Class A drugs, including amphetamines, is significant. If you are charged with a felony or misdemeanor, for instance, ridiculing the royal family, you run the risk of spending time in a harsh prison environment.
Traffic in Thailand is different from Western countries, especially in Bangkok. It is generally safe to take a taxi or tuk-tuk, but be aware of scams. The best advice we can give is to plan ahead or contact a local to help you out.
Severe storms and heavy rain can lead to floods and landslips during the monsoon season in Thailand. When this happens, the basic infrastructure and facilities can become seriously disturbed. Communication and transportation may be impossible for a more extended period of time. Make sure to check the local weather and follow the instructions of local authorities.
