CANADIAN EMBASSY ADVISES
HAT YAI – Thailand – Exercise a high degree of caution
There is no nationwide advisory in effect for Thailand. However, you should exercise a high degree of caution due to ongoing political tensions and sporadic demonstrations in Bangkok and elsewhere in the country. See Security for more details.
Southern provinces of Narathiwat, Pattani, Songkhla and Yala – Avoid all travel
Global Affairs Canada advises against all travel to and through the far southern provinces of Narathiwat, Pattani, Songkhla (including the city of Hat Yai) and Yala. These provinces have been experiencing criminally and politically motivated violent incidents.
Good morning Mr. De Caermichael,
I am sorry to hear about the incidents you experienced yesterday and understand how insecure you can feel.
If you need to file a complaint, you can contact the Songkla Tourist Police at 074 220778, they can escort you to the nearest police station and act as interpreter if necessary.
(Please note that the police that came were very confused and only 1 Trainee officer could speak very little English. So there was a lot of pantomiming and gestures and confusion. So an interpreter was not provided and who knows what – took place. )
I have tried to join you at the hotel but have been informed that the hotel cannot facilitate communication.
We advise against travel to the provinces of Pattani, Yala, Narathiwat and Songkhla on the Thai-Malaysia border. There is a high threat from terrorism. There have been recent incidents in a number of locations. If you plan to stay in the area, you should follow the advice of the local authorities, monitor local media reports and remain vigilant.

- The compiled video -in case – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=746Vz4hQb_c
The only thing that saved me from permanent injury as per being run down by 6 guys on 3 motor bike -who had a weapon was that I was only 30 feet from my hotel.
- I came to Thailand to explore and got more than I expected. The Videos tell the Story – From Air Asia – Malaysia – Krabi to Hat Yai. But the BS in Hat Yai took over the tone of the journey.
I love the Art, so I start with that and then it get Mundane but – you want to see what life is like – here it goes. FOOD – ART – SITES – BEACH
It’s all Random but at least if you heading to KRABI you know what you can find – or expect to find.
There is more of the story here;
- CHA WON in KRABI has Bed bugs or spiders -as these bites are intense – so beware.
- As you see the bites have grown – it is swollen -itchy as all hell- If it’s Bed bugs? it should have gone by now its 10 days later. Its probably flea – ticks and that means as a rash has formed and growing, its a sign of LYME DISEASE. I’m treating it as best as I can, but it requires better care than I can get in Hat Yai or Malaysia. I have stuff to use from Canada in Malaysia. so?
- I HAD TOLD MR.PANG THERE WAS BED BUGS. HE DENIED IT BUT THERE OTHER POSTS SUPPORTING MY CLAIM. PLUS I THINK I HAD SPIDER BITES AS WELL. THE BITES HAVE NOT GONE DOWN – COULD THERE BE FLEAS/TICKS AS WELL – CREATING LYME DISEASE
- BOOKING.COM Kept sending me these Junk emails asking for Ratings on the Hotels and areas. BOOKINGS.COM had many comments on Chawon regarding Bed Bugs and Critters that are biting the Guests. The Assault in HatYai is “common” I shared the info to Bookings.com as they are promoting a Dangerous Destination to many tourists. Not sure of they will listen.
The Little Home In Ao-Nang great staff. so try there and there are others I will add as time goes by.
Little Home Ao Nang
- email – Mathilde She is uber Fantastic firstname.lastname@example.org
- 155/13-15 Moo 3, Muang, Krabi, 81180 Ao Nang Beach, Thailand
- I was in the water at Krabi – looking at the 4 islands – and thought a Tsunami is coming soon. I had called the 2004 Tsunami 6 months ahead – having a vision while on a Jet-ski – and it happenned – so once again I am here having a great time – and see a Tsunami coming. I slapped myself and said Stop it! . It was November 21 2016. I went to bed and woke up at 4.30 tossing and turning – and wondering why as I was so agitated. I went to google news and saw a Tsunami had hit – Fukashima Japan. I was so pissed off – that I was too sensitive and that even if I get a POV of the future I still cant relate to it.
HAT YAI – its-no-where to no where
- Hat Yai Buddhist shrines 11/2016
- Going Native on the Pillion side of life
SO far its a mixed bag – but I get to explore and see what I would not have ever known.
- THE BEDROOM – THINK IKEA DORM! DON’T TAKE ROOM 208 – no internet wifi – any room to the back of the building… is a no zone internet. The Internet failed many times. The staff are a mixed bag. One of them did a little Drag show. Her/His name is GET.
- I laughed as one of the Malay guests was hitting on GET not realizing that GET was not fuly transitioned. So he was wooing her. I saw him the next day after they went on a date. I asked how did it go? He looked me – and just turned white, put his face down. I guess he got a surprise.
WARNING IN HAT YAI – STREET GANGS ON BIKES ARE ATTACKING FOREIGNERS. At 10.20 pm, 2016-11-24 I was taking a walk in this quiet neighborhood – when suddenly a group of motorbikes – maybe 4 with 2 people on each bike sped by. I had to wait to cross the street and as the 3 rd bike came by – this punk threw water all over me and they sped off laughing. It was only water could have been anything flammable.
There was no information given to me at all. Like I said it was a very confused meeting, Poor communication and I am trying to give you a video that points out the CCTV camera that they missed. I thought as you or someone who summoned them would have access to my passport information – that they took.

- Where I went was very sketchy. The very ugly girls wanted sex – but if you say NO! they stop massaging- the guys want to have sex and say pay 1000 Baht – and I say no sex – just strong deep tissue – I had him massage me so hard that I was screaming in pain, but it was not him that was causing me pain but the state of my body In Korea I had JIAP massage and that hurt like hell but I was immediately better and stronger.
