Skyscanner Taiwan Listed Thailand as Dangerous Country to Travel!
SkyScanner Taiwan posted a very interesting story a few days ago. The title is 拉警報！10大危險旅遊國家 or ‘Shocking!’ 10 most dangerous destinations! Travel writer Cynthia Chang listed 10 countries in her own opinion as 10 most dangerous destinations. The countries include Belgium, India, Turkey, Brazil, Thailand, Mexico, South Africa, Mongolia, Italy and Philippines.
According to the travel writer, Thailand is dangerous because of fraud, violence and sexual assault. Thus, there are many cheating cases, tourist got robbed in bars and it is also a dangerous for women tourists as they are targeted as reported in Daily Mail’s Travel Edition of Most Dangerous Holiday Destinations for Women.
We shall not comment on the other nine countries as we never travel to those countries before. However, we are unsure whether it is right to list Thailand as a dangerous country to travel. This year alone, we travel to Thailand four times and we didn’t encounter any issues listed by the writer. Thus, we spent almost a month on average every year in Thailand and we never had any problems at all! Hence, we have female readers who travel to Thailand often alone with a group of female friends and bloggers and we never heard any complaints from them. We have been traveling to Thailand since 1992 and never had issues at all!
We hope this famous travel writer Cynthia Chang should write what she understands and not by taking quotes from one or two articles. It makes me wonder if Cynthia Chang been to Thailand at all? SkyScanner Taiwan should be more responsible checking the content of the articles before publishing them as this will affects their reputation.
If Thailand is dangerous, it will be their good food, shopping, places of interest, spa, beautiful islands, sandy white beaches and Thai hospitality.
