Pickpockets

Recommended Posts

3-4 years ago I was in ibar with a friend and his wallet got stolen, he suspected it was some tg he knew that stopped by for a chat. Next Day we went to ask The security boss If we could see the surveillance tapes (we had some ex boss of Insomnia with us), well he didn't allow us in the security room but he didn't show us a video of us standing there The night before from his phone, but we were in a bit of bad camera angle so it filmed mostly our feet only.

I've sometimes used the sock wallet. Big notes in the sock under the foot and small notes spread over 2 or 3 pockets. Simply use a rest room to remove big notes for payment of drink bill or barfine ect. More likely to use this method if wandering Soi 6  or another area like beach road late at night which by the way I haven't been too either place in ages.

makes you wonder , if they all work together , suppose would be different if she said you had robbed her , recon they would of gladly shown her , just to grab you 

they have the video evidence , whats the harm in showing it ... only reason is to protect her

I've been to a few countries where pickpocketing is supposedly super common and rampant and have never had my stuff swiped.

Basic common sense is key really - keep your stuff secure, whether that be zipped pockets or money straps under your shirt. Be wary of your surroundings, don't get yourself stuck in crowded groups, don't let yourself get distracted when you see a crowd forming. If someone is standing too close to you, either move or let then know that you are aware they are there somehow without being a dick to them. Even having a dummy wallet in your back pocket isn't a bad idea - if someone is gonna swipe your wallet, they'll go for the obvious grab and likely won't attempt a second swipe on the same person.

Also, don't flaunt your cash or act like your top dog everywhere. If you paint yourself a target, you will be one. Expensive jewellery and hear isn't necessary for a holiday - all you are gonna do is impress the guy that snatches your watch or wallet.

I've been really paranoid about picpockets since someone stole my wallet when I was around 14-15 (with ~100 euros insdie? A fortune for me back then!). So Im always tense in crowds, even tho I keep my cash split between the pockets, and when i carry bigger notes I usually put them in a belt with zipper on the inside.

You have to have care of your pocket but my impression is tha tailand is safer than other countries like brazil or spain. Anyway is better not to have all the money in the same pocket

I've gotten my phone knicked once in Thailand, and that was in Patong back in 2012. I was walking home blind drunk with a burger in one hand and a 7/11 bag full of goodies in the other. It was just at closing so tons of people were leaving Bangla. All of a sudden, out of nowhere, a ladyboy step in front of me and grabs my dick way too hard for comfort making me freeze in place. The whole ordeal ended after 2 seconds and it took me another 5 seconds to regain spatial awareness. At that point, I realized my phone was gone along with the LB

Other than that I've never had an issue with being pickpocketed.

In all the times I have been to Thailand I have had only one encounter with a pickpocket. Occurred on a crowded baht bus. Pickpocket sat to the right of me. I had my travel wallet in the back pocket of my shorts, but it has this sort of clip thing that goes on your belt, so the wallet can't be stolen, but can be removed from the pocket (only had my drinking/going out money in it anyway). The thief had it completely out of my pocket before I realized, grabbed his wrist, yanked the wallet back and shoved him against the back of the truck cab. His eyes got wide as saucers, he rang the buzzer and quickly jumped off. 

I noticed all the locals on board looking at me like I was a crazy man for shoving the guy, so about two blocks later I hit the buzzer and jumped ship. For some reason I was paranoid I would get in trouble, so I went back to my hotel, showered, changed clothes before I went back out a couple of hours later.
