A good reason not to visit Thailand

British tourist family viciously attacked by mob on Thailand holiday

  • Wow, times have changed. As I recall, from many trips there, the Thais are generally friendly and peaceful. This is not really a mob attack, but the work of one, and later 3 or 4, drunk Thais. You can see most of the crowd are shocked by this behavior. Still, a video like this will reduce tourism. Very stupid of the perps. The police should and probably will come down on them like a ton of bricks. I wouldn’t want anything to do with the cops there – they look pretty tough.

      I’ve not been there but people I know say they generally feel safer than they do in a typical western city at night.

    Pack attack are frequent in Thailand but are rarely reported in the international media.

    The family was attacked in the Thai beach resort of Hua Hin

    They often happen after a tourist queries and refuses to pay a bill and sometimes when tourists are inebriated and cannot tell the mood of the moment.

    They can also follow perceived insults and often happen if a bar girl is short-hanged.

    But Buddhists are so peaceful, much more than any other religion, particularly Christianity… or so my atheist friends keep telling me.

    The BEST reason not to visit Thailand is,
    Because it’s Thailand.
