Re: Thailand returns

thx for the info so far.

This topic came to my mind bc i read some stuff about thieves etc.
overrated tourist stuff?

let u sleep the thai girls in your home all night? i mean the girls you know for 5 hours and 15 drinks.
The idea of getting robbed during sleep... oh dear...
I guess its a little rude kicking her out of my house at 4am (kata beach area).

How do you guys handle this?
Call a taxi?

i never had a problem with this, they don't seem generally dishonest, why rob you when you will prolly give her 1000 baht anyway

fletcher says he hides his stuff under the lining of the bin, which is a good idea, i never bothered tho as i am an incredibly light sleeper, no1 could get away with anything or i'd wake up

i don't fully understand why but thai's seem to have an ingrained cultural aversion to stealing. they'll lie to you and deceive you into paying too much money or giving them money for bogus reasons, but they wont straight take your money (on the average, obv there are exceptions).

999/1000 times you can pass out drunk with a stack of money at the end of your bed and when you wake up it and the girl will be right where you left them

Plus if the girl knows you live in Thailand, she realizes that there's a good chance you'll run into her again or find out who she is.

I used to have mad paranoia about this sort of stuff. So much so that one day after a girl left I was CONVINCED that she stole my cell phone (the maids found it later and put it on top of my dresser).

But yeah, no point in stealing from you if you've got a super high chance of seeing her again. Thai girls will not steal your passport/wallet but they WILL steal you heart

Re: Thailand returns

Ha, I was once convinced a girl stole my ipod but later I realized I hid it under a cushion so she wouldn't steal it. It's still a good idea to hide/lock up small valuable stuff. You can always use the "wait outside while I clean up for a minute" excuse.

Re: Thailand returns

Just arrived back in Bangkok after a couple weeks in Vegas. Going to be alone until I meet up with some people again on the 17th or 18th or so. Any 2+2ers feel like meeting up for a drink or something? I really don't have very much to do for the next few days other than some shopping. First round'll be on me.
