I'll be heading for Thailand very soon and will stay there for some months.
Since I'm not yet 20 years old, I've realized I could get in trouble if caught by police as beeing minor at a club/bar.
My idea is to either borrow a friends (who is 20 ofc) ID-card and use it as ID to get in to clubs who are asking for ID, and in case police raids, show them that ID.
Or the other alternative is to scan my passport, photoshop my birth month (making me 20y old), and printing a forged passport copy, which I only intend to use while going out.
Which of the alternatives do you think is the best? I guess getting into clubs will be no problem (doubtfull they'll even ask for ID), but in case of police raid at a club, which is the best alternatvie for tricking the police that I'm 20? Will they even accept a national ID-card from EU-country or a passport copy as ID?
Answers are very much appreciated!
EDIT: I googled "forged passport copy thailand" and found this link: http://www.bkkapt.com/laws_fight_pas...gery-1188.html
The main thrust of the bill is to double the maximum jail term for possession of fake international passports to 10 years.
Reading that makes me 100% confident that I will NOT use a forged passport copy in Thailand. I don't think showing another persons idea to police is such a bright idea now either...
So I think the best thing to do if being at a club/bar while it's raided by police, is to say I dont carry my passport on me, and offer them some bahts just to get out. And even if I would be caught as minor at a bar/club by the police, at least I would not get 10 years in prison...
