    Check the Gender

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You have to understand that all sexy girls are not females. There are many beautiful 'ladies' that actually are men; transvestites or transsexuals (katoeys). These groups can be extremely rude, dangerous and revengeful if a promise is broken. Be careful.

    Thai Prison

    If for any reason you think you should bring drugs into Thailand be warned - if you get caught you stand the chance of the death penalty. Even foreigners are punished by death.

    Beware apes !

    Just outside cave temple Wat Suwannakahu

    These apes are very friendly at first but after a while they will show tooth and want every bit of nuts, bananas etc.. Give all to them and leave as they might have rabies.

    Swimming Dangers

    by keeweechic Written Sep 3, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you see a red flag on the beach, don't go swimming. There are many dangerous rip currents in the 'low season' and the beaches in Phuket do not have lifeguards.
