Is Thailand Safe to Live? Safe to Visit?

I’ve posted related to this topic a number of times, but never did a video about it. Recently I even talked my mother into considering making a journey to Thailand – so, that’s news. Is Thailand a safe place for a vacation? For living long-term? I try to answer the question in the video and provide some helpful guidelines.

In short, the answer is – Thailand is safe to visit or live. There are some things you should be aware of, but there are something like 100,000 expats living in Thailand – and I think overall the feeling is that it’s a safe country to live in.

What do you think? Are you fearing for your life in Thailand?

One thought on “Is Thailand Safe to Live? Safe to Visit?”

  1. I think Thailand is safer than many of our own countries. In all the years I have been in Thailand I can count the number of crimes I am directly aware of on one hand.
