Bangkok rated 47th safest city in the world

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Safe in terms of what? Define safe?

As I said to my brother when he visited me in Phnom Penh, there is a lot of crime here, people do get shot and killed, people get deliberately run over and bag snatches and mobile phone thefts are commonplace.

However, to be shot and killed, you have to be involved in it in some way. People aren't randomly shot and killed here. To get run over, or have all your belongings destroyed and your clothes cut up, you have to have really annoyed someone, typically an emotionally unstable girlfriend, And to have your phone or bag snatched, you just have to be careless. Not crazily careless, just a little bit careless usually does the trick.

But do I personally ever feel unsafe walking around PP? Never.

There are many degrees of the definition of safety.

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.
