As a Japanese expat travelling from country to country, Bangkok is fairly safer than many major EU countries, and far safer than US cities. Love the Bangkok nightlife and can always walk alone. But don't do that in London or NYC.

It's my fifth stay in Bangkok. I feel safe here. But I feel safe anywhere since I'm Christian and God is always with me.

Bangkok Thailand is a complete dump, scammers left and right, women trying to hook up with foreigners to get out of this country, child trafficking and strict abortion laws punishable by jail time, to keep the exploitation going since single mothers who can’t afford to raise kids send them to orphanages where the abuse starts. Land of scams, not smiles, definitely not going back to that dump again.

Friendly and safe city everywhere despite the huge crowds. Only thing I experienced on my first visitwere tuk tuk drivers and their coworkers who try to scam you promising full sightseeing or local festivals for a ridiculous sums just to drive you to businesses who sell stuff you don't need to, like suits. I was better prepared in my 2nd and 3rd visits and just enjoyed it

i came to bangkok 25 years ago and live here since 8 years. never had any problems with thais. got attacked by a drunken foreigner once..
thais in general are very polite, and as long as you are polite to them too, you wont get into any trouble.
