Safety and Precautions

As in most of Thailand, Samui is a safe place. Crime rarely affects visitors, but there is the odd report of thefts from hotel rooms and late-night robberies. Take sensible precautions, and the risks are minimal.

The greatest safety issue stems from hazardous roads and reckless drivers who know there's little law enforcement to hinder their progress. Combine that with visitors with no experience who rent motorcycles and don't bother wearing helmets.
