Around Bangkok Travel Guide

Health and Safety

The region is generally safe, and the towns mentioned have hospitals. Take normal precautions and keep valuables on your person at all times when traveling by bus or train. Too-good-to-be-true deals—particularly involving gems—are always a rip-off. On a more amusing note, the monkeys of Phetchaburi are cute but cunning, and may relieve you of your possessions, especially food.
