Unjustified. The western media tend to go over thr top. I live here and read about the violence and murders in London so l better stay away, or is that over reacting?

Like anyplace in the world you want trouble you can find it, thailand certainly is no exception. However if you have street smarts and stay out of trouble at home them shouldnt have an issue in thailand.

as previous poster said, id bet there would be more murders/unexplained deaths & violence in London, so Patong should be a haven,

Like that stupid British show "Big Trouble in Thailand" Over the TOP

but if you want trouble youll find it (like anywhere)

We have been going to Thailand for years and feel much safer there than I do in Milan.
