Hi guys basically my 22 year old girlfriend and her 4 friends are planning a holiday to Thailand, I have no idea why thats the destination that they
are totally set on. My gf is a very beautiful, blonde haired young girl and a friend of mine who went there a couple years ago said that she was
gettig her blonde hair stroked all the time nby passers by in the street which I thought was a bit odd.
In the press in the last couple years there have been cases of British girls being raped or murdered over there which is why im so concerned, Also due
to the polital unstability a while ago which resulting in riots and airports closing. My gf is a loverley, very sensible girl, but not terribly street
smart. She had £20 stolen from her the other week when she was in a bar and im really worried that something could happen to her.
I've also heard cases of police corruption over there and if she was arrested (not that she would ever do something to get herself in the situation,
but abroad who knows what they might do) I would be terrified for her.Her older brother has also come back from tavelling.including Thailand and he is
telling her not to go as its too dangerous and since he has recently been there I cant help feeling that his concerns are rightfully justified.
I want to know more though and if avnyone can shed some light on the country it would be appreciated as I know that the total % of these crimes are
probably very low, but I cant help feeling really worried about her planning a trip to there. I'd much rather them go somewhere safer, but my
knowledge is mostly coming from the paper so Im hoping that I am just being the typical ott concerned bf and getting worried more than I shoould. So
please anyone with first hand knowledge or any knowledge please share so I can decide if I need to convince her to change the desination or if I need
to just stop worrying so much and just make sure she knows which areas to avoid/stick to.
This is concerning me a lot so I appreciate taking your times to reply and help me out, thanks guys n girls
