    From what I've heard the Red Shirts are pretty neutral (if not quite friendly) towards foreigners. It's not us they have the gripe with

    I've lived in Thailand for a year when this shit all began... never felt a damn thing. Even more, those who are not protesting treat you even better, since there is a lack of tourists.

    Stay out the trouble zone and you should be fine.

    P.S. and take it easy with them ladyboys...

    you are right but in war people do not see foreigner or countrymen. I hope this ends soon as Thai govmnt is ready to take some massive action against them.

    I have been to both Bangkok and Pattya. Its safe place.
    When I was there the locals were very friendly and spoke english.

    In Pattya you will find a ton of White middle aged men and beautiful asian women. The bars there on the beach are filled with them.
    For little money you can pick one up and have a nice time. She will stay with you for how ever long you are there.

    Its also best to find a tour agent. They can show you the best places to eat and where to find the real fun. Be sure to check out the "tiger show"

    Why not go to Vietnam ? It's safer than Thailand.Go to Nha Trang,Phan Thiet,Mui Ne,Better than Pattaya

    heya Carson - going back again I see - that's great! I just got back on April 1... the Reds are definitely heating things up. Just steer clear of BKK for the majority of your trip and you'll be fine. Expect martial law (eh that would be bad for your nightlife efforts in BKK) if they cannot control the Reds soon. So if you haven't booked your ticket yet... wait or base your travels out of Vietnam as someone else suggested - you can visit Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and parts of Thai..

    I would just fly into Bangkok and stay in Pattaya about an hour away. There is nothing to worry about outside of Bangkok. Though the whole red shirt thing has escalated your not really going to have a problem unless your in Silom. The king isn't taking any chances. So in Bangkok the sky train and major malls may be shut down when you arrive.

    As I said Pattaya is super chill and you won't have a single issue.

    I have many friends that are retired over there, so if anyone knows it would be them.

    The that extorted about 3 billion dollars from Thailand got merked. So the red shirt BS is over with. My friends over in Bangkok told me all about it, but that is the cliff notes version.
