Krabi travel safety 8-Oct-2012 At 2:34:23 PM singersmith
Wendy hit the nail on the head, it's not really Thailand out there. As far as the "troubles" in the South go, yes, all of that is further south and doesn't make it to Krabi. So don't expect any car bombs or utes full of dudes with guns ambushing your taxi. On the other hand, southern Thailand has it's own host of problems that are worth being aware of: shootings, rapes, muggings, break ins, and lots of nasty drugs (yaba) to fuel it all. My partner got lost on his motorbike, stopped at a police station (unattended) for directions, flagged the first bike going slow enough and the two guys looked at each other then pulled out a pistol and fired five shots at him. Ao Nang has had a bunch of rapes, the latest being in the last two weeks. Somebody was hacked in the neck with a machete at Tonsai about 10 years ago over quickdraw theft. Getting away from people and crowds is the same anywhere you go: get on your two feet and start walking, people disappear in five minutes or less. January is hot in the South, crowds don't taper off until March.
