    Firstly, I think Thailand is one of the safest foreign countries I have been to. The people are nice and people are mannerly. Take all the advice people have given you but make your own decisions.

    I don’t think going on a romance tour (if what I believe it is that you are set up on numerous dates to find a partner) is a good idea as it is a fake environment and it will constantly be on your mind if your dates are genuine which in all likelihood they are not.

    Don’t let yourself be wound up because things don’t go your way as that is the starting point of an argument which escalated quickly. Don’t get jealous as there is no point. If someone isn’t treating you the way you want then move on immediately. All too often holidays are ruined by letting someone away with things that you wouldn’t tolerate at home.

    Expect to be scammed a little e.g. padded bills, girls taking liberties with drinks etc. if this happens move somewhere else but don’t let a few quid cause you to get angry or say something out of order.

    Don’t go down the beach by yourself at night as this can lead to awkward situations or worse. Always stay relaxed because this is one of the best places you will ever go to, especially the first time. I wouldn’t read private dancer until after you come back because it can spoil the illusion.

    Don’t think you are special or the fact you are young makes you better than some of the more mature travlellers. Don’t believe a girl who professes feelings that you would laugh at at home because it is so early.

    Wrap up when you have s3x even if you feel that she is special and you want to show her that you feel the same. If they do that with you, they do it with others.

    Above all enjoy yourself ya lucky bastrd.

    As someone from Ireland it is very rare that I ever stand up for my British neighbors but....my god this is one of the bizarre posts. Be amazing if true but it is just not.

    555... well, not entirely true anyway ... but if you have not met at least ONE of the Poms that Oldfella is talking about then it really is your first trip to Thailand ..555..

    IMHO on any 10 minute walk on Beach Road Pattaya you will spot a few ...

    the only ex criminals I've ever met in Thailand ( to my knowledge) were a couple of Aussies that had done time for fixing horse races , trainer and jockey , I'd bought them drinks when I rang the bell for my 25th B'day , they were also staying at the Expat and had a few drinks with them by the pool the next day , nice guys

    I've met plenty of exSAS, Special Forces, and Navy Seals in Thailand...pure fantasists all of them...555...

    But there was only 2 criminals I knowingly had anything to do with...one was a Brit guy who used to be a fence (his occupation was a jeweller) and the other was an Aussie who was a time share agent that ripped off his partners..AFAIK he is still in the monkey house over in Phuket

    Its uncanny how many Ex forces guys in Thailand were Special forces, SAS etc. I've never sat and had a beer with one that was simply a plain old Squaddie, Sailor or Airman. 555

    That reminds me of one of my favourite movies... "Second hand Lions" with Michael Caine and Robert Duval. It was about two old buggers who had an adventure filled life, and told others about it that everyone else thought were "Tall tails". In the end the stories turned out to be true.

    Probably one of my best skills

    I can spot a bullshitter, sometimes just by looks and am able to keep a wide berth of this mutts in Thailand

    And there is a ton of them there!

    You're forgetting one of your best mates couldn't go home for a long long time or he'd get locked up?

    They are from many other countries as well as the U.K. I was making the point that most Brits you meet in Thailand aren’t criminals.

    Or have you forgotten your history lessons on how in the late 1700s after years of plague, fire and lawlessness those healthy and honest people that could fled Britain under the guise of Transportation and founded the great Southern paradise?
