    The trick with taxis is not to look like a fresh off the banana boat tourist.

    When you get to BKK,Book yourself a flight to Manila, and go enjoy the islands there and the romance your looking for, still 7peso to the pound and not a rip off place as long as your careful, Beer hotels women are cheaper, though the woman you pull make sure they understand its a business arrangement and tell her to put her mobile away. The good thing about Flip flops is they are very accommodating but make sure you don't get caught in the position of getting married to one, they are worse than Thai women in there demands.


    Have fun and if serious about romance try placing adds up in free forums websites craigslist as well.

    Are there particular things that I should be aware of? What are the common negative things that happen to tourists there that I might encounter? I need to know this ahead because I don’t want something bad to happen to me while in there.

    I’ve already read some blogs and other posts about their experience. It was a mix of good and bad reviews. I need other details though that I have to keep in mind. Is there any guide someone can recommend to me? I need more information. I only have three weeks left to prepare.

    Never keep wads of cash in a hotel room safe. Wait till the maid has done your room, remove the bin bag, drop your cash in the bin, replace bag, put junk in the bag and throw a few notes in the safe after checking it's properly anchored.

    Anyway, how safe are safes? You can enter a standard hotel safe without passcode or key; give it a hefty thump at the top above the lock and at the same time twist the door handle; bingo.

    Get drinks from the waitress never allow your "companion" go and get you a drink.
    If she looks too good , she probably isn't. Check how often "she" blinks.
    Never pick up someone on the street after the bars have closed.
    Never take anyone or offer to take anyone you picked up after hours back to your hotel room. ( These three/four go together)

    Never run a bar tab, pay as you go.
    Smile and buy the Mamasan a drink.
    They chose you. You don't chose them.
    (Financial not safety) In BKK always flag down a taxi. Don't get in a stationary lurking one. (See internet for how to hail an Asian cab)

    The taxi driver knows more about smart phone navigation than you, but still cannot read a map.

    Again financial rather than physical safety.
    If you have already organized the "romance" ahead of time.

    Her brother/uncle is her husband
    The family sold their last buffalo in about 1985
    No one in the family is actually sick
    Her father/uncle/brother never take care of their motorbike. Why should you?
    Etc..

    Real physical safety?
    Never join a group of Thais drinking whisky no matter how friendly or how good their English is.
    Avoid stepping on guys feet
    Never argue with Thais
    Anyone picking a fight with you is not alone
    Etc.

    Sorry Mate ... my bad.

    I was reiterating your original question because it was important.

    Hence, top of the list.

    Apologies for the mis-understanding.

    Romantic tour, is that like the YouTube videos of holidays catering specifically for single American men to meet Russian women.
    These types of tours are not available in Thailand, so if you've been sold one, ask for a refund.
