    I have heard from many friends that security in this area is sketchy at best...thanks for the post.

    Tongue firmly in cheek. And ruminants have big tongues mind you.

    The post i was responding too was rather odd.

    Got it. I am not a big Phuket fan- as it is simply too busy for me- however I have found it to be relatively safe.

    I don't care for it either, but I tend to avoid tourist areas anyway. I'm much more comfortable with locals, or in a local setting, than surrounded by foreigners on vacation.*

    In general Thailand is very safe and other than theft and graft most foreigners don't deal with crime. Those that do more than likely have searched out something that is inviting the presence of a dodgier group of people.

    *Tourists do the stupidest things. :D
