This is what I woke up to this morning. It was all refreshingly normal, actually.
Hey tourists: come to Thailand. I mean, buy travel insurance, yeah, but please come. NO ONE WILL HURT YOU. You'll have a good time snorkeling, lying on the beach, visiting temples, and helping revive the economy of the country. Really. I can vouch for it.
Long story short:
"Is it safe to travel to Thailand?"
Safer than Brazil, probably safer than New York City.
"Will anything bad happen to me?"
You may get overcharged for a taxi ride. You may even get a sunburn. Take precautions (SPF 30 and you're good to go).
Sex tourists need not apply.
