Safety & Security
* Do not leave your things unattended on
the beach while you go swimming or into your
bungalow, even briefly.
* Beware of illegal drugs. Enforcement and penalties, even
for simple possession, have been stepped up considerably.
* Be alert for snatch & grab thieves, usually on motorcycles.
Stow your bag securely in tuk-tuks and carry your bag/camera away
from the street side.
* Traffic laws, including helmet and driver license laws are
being more strictly enforced. Mind the law.
* Boat safety practices are not up to international
standards. It is up to YOU to make sure your boat has sufficient
safety equipment and is not overloaded.
