The fact that flowers continue to blossom throughout the winter in Thailand is simply another reason why visitors to the country should consider going there.

Police on tourism caution tourists about Thai scams

Suvarnabhumi Airport is launching a data hub to combine data from the tourist police and the police force in an effort to advance their technological capabilities. Additionally, license plate recognition cameras will be installed in patrol vehicles, and officers will wear body cameras. Additionally, they are developing a system to share security footage among 33 tourist police stations. The Thai tourist police are eager to stress out, however, that international tourism in Thailand is mostly risk-free. The great majority of crimes conducted against foreign visitors are committed simply for the purpose of stealing their money. In Bangkok, tuk-tuk and taxi drivers will loiter near tourist attractions and deceive consumers by pretending the attractions are closed. This is done so that drivers can take passengers to expensive souvenir shops that pay them a commission. Others are exploited by jewelry businesses that sell imitation gems and tailors that sell knock-off clothing manufactured…

Sellers of cannabis on Pattaya Walking Street require licenses but cannot obtain them

After cannabis was decriminalized, the street vendors of Pattaya could be the next target in the ongoing battle to bring cannabis sales under control. The police are informing market and street vendors that they cannot sell cannabis products without a license and are issuing a warning.
