Thailand, a country opened by our tourists after Turkey and Egypt, attracts many temptations. There are kilometers of sand beaches, beauty of the underwater world of the tropical seas, ancient pagodas and Buddhist monasteries, joining some forbidden eastern pleasures, including even sex tourism. But here’s what the prison in Thailand is just waiting to careless tourist resting, mouth open in surprise, stumbled, few people think.
According to statistics, every year in Thai thousands of prisoners fall, among them there are and Russians. Impressions from the camps of the Kingdoms Siam is so sharp that you want to avoid dating them. I want even the enemy.
Now let’s take a look at why prison camp in Thailand is not at all what Our compatriots think.

Monarchy is not a pastoral
Thailand – a country with a monarchical form of government. King can be guided in setting the laws by your own ethical and unethical. Absolutely innocent, with a point European view, action or word may lead you from the hotel room to the local monkey’s “monkey” plot, and then in the prison cell.
Entrance to Bangkok Central Prison
Prison camps in Thailand more than 140. They contain about 250 thousand prisoners. What are the conditions of detention in they are reported to the King regularly, but the true state of affairs is silent. On the one hand, this is due to the fact that the prison authorities have a good profit, and the worse the prisoners are contained, the better the Thai chief lives prisons. On the other hand, the King himself is not in the mood to be liberal in respect of violators of the law.
With one of the most crowded prisons in Thailand, you can “meet” right in Bangkok, second in degree of horror located in the center of international tourism in Phuket. BUT now let’s look at the shocking life of prisoners from the inside.

Conditions of detention
Thai prison – a kind of communal. All violators of the law are contained in small sports similarities. halls. Norm area – 1 square. meter per person. Standard Camera – a hundred people. At the same time the servants of Themis do not divide prisoners by categories. Killers, rapists and perpetrators may be together random accidents.
Inmates seize mobile phones and other apatatura. Not about what kind of televisions in the cameras speech can not be. Nearly there is no mythological “praskovya” as such. In one of the corners there is a narrow gutter leading somewhere in the underworld. Clear it a hose twice a day during a daily walk or Intra-jury events.
Learning Thai in Prison
The lights in the cameras do not extinguish the entire 24 hours. Administration in this way insures against possible incidents among prisoners. Sleep in Thai prison – the inheritance of the elect. Happiness may be an opportunity close your eyes while sitting. Many have to stand for days. Raised at six in the morning with a siren, allowed to “sleep” at ten in the evening. Fed twice a day disgustingly and poorly. Can I buy something in prison shop, but no one will give you a guarantee that you have the money cellmates will not be selected on the first day.
In addition to all the possible charms of the regime, prisoners in Thailand suffer from the abundance of harmful insects. Despite the fact that prison uniform and personal locker are sprinkled abundantly insecticide powder, bugs and fleas go to places of detention “herds”.

Note! Those individuals in the comments, Thai prisoners are considered to be subject to conditions of detention better than Russian (although it can, compared to such prisons, like “Black Dolphin” and better, but this is the only ones exceptions), read the real stories of prisoners who have experienced all this “parsley” on yourself!
“Palefaces” we are not brothers
What is the notorious Thai hospitality, you can feel in fully, only in jail. Racism against “white faces” in thai prisons flourishes. Aggression and hellish mockery of hapless tourists from europe are the norm of behavior for all – not only for inmates, but also for prison staff.
On the part of the administration, you will get water cut five times ration If Thais are given five liters for all hygiene needs water per day, the “white” put only one. Besides you “forget” to give the box for personal belongings, so that all belongings will have store right on the floor. In the chamber, by unofficial agreement of the chamber society, you will be given a place near the gutter with sewage. If you have no rich relatives and lawyers, then after two days you find yourself at the bottom of the social prison pyramid.
Women – the lowest link in Thai prison, rape which is not considered a crime
The administration responds to all complaints of imprisoned Europeans. inadequate. At best, you’ll hear something like her from her: “You’ve come here …” For all the violations of the prison regime, you will punished with sophisticated cruelty so that others are disreputable It was.
What you can get in the Thai language
- Do not relax after seeing the warm smiles of Thais. Considering that all people are brothers, you can habitually slap the aborigine on the shoulder. You will definitely not understand, and this innocent gesture may well be enough to be in a bedbug chamber near the gutter with sewage.
- Never rent not that car or tuk-tuk, but even a scooter, leaving no tangible evidence of which able you took possession of it. Do not be lazy take a picture of the vehicle on all sides. It will help you disown the charges of damage to another’s property. Read more about renting a bike in Thailand.
- Do not forget, not only that the PDD Thailand is not particularly observed, so also in the country there is a left-sided motion. In addition, the Thai counterpart DPS always on the side Thais.
- Illegal transaction in the territory of the kingdom is punishable by prison for a period of time.
- A passion for sex tourism in Thailand can lead to charges of rape This type of crime is punishable by death. Whole term to the execution of the sentence guilty conducts in a red robe with with hand and foot shackles.
- Do not consider the abundance of wild drugs in Thailand is an indulgence in their sale and distribution. If a you are caught by the hand with a similar deed, the best that you can expect is a life sentence. The execution of mortals sentences against foreign drug dealers is not for Thailand is something unusual.
- For disrespecting the King you can get into the Thai prison up to 15 years. For example, if you take a photo of his statue, while pretending to embrace him – get ready for the worst.
- For copyright infringement, you can, at best, get rid of a fine of up to 400 thousand baht, and at worst, go to jail for a period of 3 months to 2 years.
Themis works in Thailand clearly and harmoniously. From presentation charges before conviction can go all day. Thai the police get an award for every intruder caught. You can pay off only for the most minor crimes in Thailand, but it must be done literally within a few hours after being caught.
Russians in prisons of Thailand
Russian tourists more and more choose the illegal the profession of guides, guides and agents for Thai real estate. Of these, a small part own their business in Thailand or work officially. To be honest, Thais, who have their own business, would not mind earn on such workers. However, a lot of money from them you do not get, but have to work hard. Again, salary depends on the number of tours sold. Read more about working as a guide in Thailand.
Thai police do not sleep and often arranges raids against Russian guides, and then sends them to a Thai prison, or imposes a fine. They learn about illegal immigrants, mainly due to to their compatriots who strive to push on competing guide taking away his profit.
