Thailand, a small country situated in the center of the Indochina peninsula in Southeast Asia, has plenty of gorgeous scenery, excellent cuisine, and exciting destinations to offer tourists. However, you could find much safer places to spend your vacation.
In recent years, the land that used to be referred to as the “Land of Smiles” has been named one of the most dangerous tourist destinations in the world. Contributing to this designation are violence, crime, and widespread police corruption.
The boom of tourism in Thailand since the 1960s has created a disdain among locals toward the millions of tourist foreigners they feel have invaded their country.

If you choose to visit this seemingly amazing paradise, you may, as many others do, leave happy. However, why run the risk of leaving unhappy or disillusioned, if you are able to leave safely at all?
