Best Rated Warnings and Dangers in Chiang Mai

  • Western scam artists!

    by Ubiquitous Written May 5, 2013

    When my wife (who is Thai) and I walked near Old Town, we were approached by 2 enthusiastic Aussie men. They were handing out free scratch tickets where you could win prizes. I scratched the wax off my ticket and when one of the men saw I had 3 stars, he became very excited, as did his partner! According to them, we had won a week in an island hotel and just had to accompany them to the travel agency to claim our prize. Suspecting a scam or bait and switch of some sort, I declined. They then tried to appeal to my sympathy because they would receive 1000 baht just by bringing me to the agency!
    Well, we didn't go, so I don't know what the plan was, but the moral is that all touts and scam artists are not necessarily Thais.

    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 ;-)
