Travel – Thailand: Deadly Destination

Thailand Deadly DestinationThailand: Deadly Destination
By John Stapleton
Publisher: A Sense of Place Publishing
Published: November 2014
ISBN: 978-0992548735
ASIN: B00PQ6BB8S
Pages: 270
Genre: Travel

The daily robbing, bashing, drugging, extortion and murder of foreign tourists on Thai soil, along with numerous scandals involving unsafe facilities and well established scams, has led to frequent predictions that Thailand’s multi-billion dollar tourist industry will self-destruct. Instead tourist numbers more than doubled in the decade to 2014. The world might not have come to the hometowns of the many visitors fascinated by Thailand, but it certainly came to the Land of Smiles.

While the Thai media is heavily censored, and bad news stories about tourists suppressed, nonetheless there is more than enough evidence to demonstrate that something has gone seriously awry with the nation’s tourist industry.

In 2014, just as in the years preceding it, there were train, bus, ferry, speedboat, motorbike and car accidents, murders, knifings, unexplained deaths, numerous suicides, diving accidents, robberies gone wrong, anonymous bodies washing up on the shores and a string of alcohol and drug related incidents.

Thailand had a dying king and serious succession problems, weak democratic institutions, an economy slipping into recession, faced issues of corruption across many of its key services and was host to international crime syndicates, awash with despised foreigners and drifting perilously towards civil war.

Tourists choose one destination over another for a number of reasons, most of which Thailand scores highly on. But on the core issue of tourist safety, Thailand scores very badly indeed.

About the Author:
Thailand Deadly Destination AuthorThe first money John Stapleton ever made out of writing was in 1972 when he was co-;winner of a short story competition held by what was then Australia’s then leading cultural celebration, the Adelaide Arts Festival. He graduated from Macquarie University in Sydney in 1975 with a double major in philosophy and anthropology and did post- graduate work with the Sociology Department at Flinders University.

In 2004 he moved to The Australian, leaving after 15 years. As a general news reporter in Sydney John Stapleton, or “Stapo” as he was widely known, covered literally thousands of stories: from the funerals of bikies, children and dignitaries to fires, floods, droughts and demonstrations of all kinds. In 2000 he helped found the world’s longest running father’s show, Dads On The Air. After leaving The Australian in 2009 he established A Sense of Place Publishing while traveling in S.E. Asia. He is the author of Chaos at the Crossroads, Hunting the Famous and Thailand: Deadly Destination.
