    Thai Prison

    by frankcanfly Updated Apr 2, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you choose to be involved with drugs in Thailand, you will end up in a Thai prison. Period. I guess this is better than the alternative in Malaysia: DEATH

    While you are in Chiang Mai, you may want to go to the prison and visit 'Tourist Prisoners.' Whether you condone or support what they've done, they would love to talk to you and hear about things on the outside. Bring shorts or t-shirts for them if possible. They will usually want cigarettes, but, well, I don't smoke.......

    The climate in Thailand can be very hot, while hanging around remember to have a break for some drinks, can be cool smoothly in the city or just coconut in the jungle.

    Stray dogs

    All over town, as well as the temples, you will see many stray dogs. At some temples there are donation boxes for the dogs. I’m sure these dogs are best avoided, not to get bitten.

    Thais respect their king a lot and want you to do so. There is a fine for anyway who would destroy a bill, since the face of the king is on every bill. Be nice ;-)
