Yep! That is Thailand and many Asian countries for you. I have always been aware of the risks in traveling in these countries. Corruptions, inept governments, lack of regulations down to the enforcement of basic rules of laws. I avoid the tourist hot spots as much as I can. I much prefer to mingle with the locals and visit the less beaten paths.
