Externally, the mosques do not differ from our usual. However, Thai mosquitoes sometimes carry dangerous diseases, such as malaria and dengue fever. But not everything is so scary. In tourist areas, mosquitoes are very rare. You just do not need to go to the cinema of the jungle.

Despite all the friendliness of the "Smiles Country", even here are not rare cases of crime, especially in relation to tourists.


The main percentage of theft occurs in public transport. There are also cases of hotel rooms. Even the personnel of respectable hotel complexes do not happen a pair of bills from the wallet. All valuable things and documents need to be stored in a safe.

Another not a little important danger of Thailand – Road traffic. In addition to local drivers who do not fully comply with high-speed mode, there are tourists. They are not oriented in an unfamiliar city and often do not have experience in left-hand driving. As a result, on the roads full chaos.

The sidewalks are extremely small, and numerous bikes are parked along the roads so tightly that it comes directly on the roadway.

Pedestrian transitions Drivers usually ignore. You have to wait for the accumulation of people in the transition and go a large stream. Only so cars manage to slow down.

Police officers are on highly lively transitions for safety, adjusting traffic.
