Hi all, I recently read in a different travel forum (maybe Travelfish or LP, can't remember) that you should have little padlocks on your suitcase to ensure things don't get stolen from your room (I guess by hotel personnel, etc...), and also to be very careful about making sure your door locks properly.
...maybe I am naive, but this came as a surprise to me. We plan on staying in mid-range hotels (e.g. Loy LaLong in Bangkok, Baan Orapin in CM...) and will keep our valuables (passport, money) in the hotel safe, as many TA-ers advise. I have not read or heard many horror stories about safety in Thailand.
Other than the aforementioned and an iPad, I will not have anything terribly valuable with me. That said, should I keep the iPad locked up somewhere when I am not in the room? I don't intend to carry it around with me. Or is it better to leave it at home and not tempt the fates?
Thanks all in advance!
