    Thai Tourist Quiz - Brits Must Now Score 7/10 Before Entering Thailand

    Are you a moron? Click here to find out!



    Question 1 / 10:

    If I get caught smuggling drugs into Thailand, what’s the worst that could happen?

    1) You will be sent home and dealt with by the police from your home country
    2) You will be sent to a Thai jail and may be sentenced to death by lethal injection
    3) Nothing, the Thais have a pretty relaxed attitude to drugs


    Question 2 / 10:

    I am a recreational user; in Thailand, it is safe to buy drugs from:

    1) Other travellers
    2) The Locals
    3) No one


    Question 3 / 10:

    Thai prisons are most like:

    1) Prisons here in the UK, except a bit hotter
    2) Posh hotels. That’s why they named one the 'Bangkok Hilton' right?
    3) Hell on earth


    Question 4 / 10:

    Which of the following is the best way to protect your bag from being tampered with?

    1) Locking your bag at the airport
    2) Locking your bag before you leave home or your hotel
    3) Locking your bag with a keyless lock as soon as you have finished packing


    Question 5 / 10:

    You met someone travelling and have arranged to meet up again in a different destination in a couple of week’s time. He has asked you to take his bag for him as he is going exploring and wont need it - what do you do?

    1) Say no - it’s his bag, his responsibility
    2) Say 'OK' - you've known him a month already and can trust him
    3) Agree, but only after he shows you what's inside it


    Question 6 / 10:

    Which of these statements is true?

    1) Only black market drugs can get you in trouble if you are caught carrying them through customs
    2) Some prescription drugs may be seen as illegal in Thailand
    3) If you are caught with drugs at the border, you can pay your way out of trouble using US dollars


    Question 7 / 10:

    Which of the following is not a legal drug in Thailand?

    1) Paracetamol
    2) The local Thai Ecstasy, or “Yaa Baa”
    3) Temazapan


    Question 8 / 10:

    You hear about a group of British travellers you met recently planning a trip to Vietnam in a hired car, they invite you along too. Do you:

    1) Jump at the chance, at last - an opportunity to get off the well-worn travellers trail
    2) Decline, you are not sure if travelling by car is safe
    3) Go along, but you make sure that no one gives you anything to take over the border to Vietnam


    Question 9 / 10:

    You have been arrested, what should you do?

    1) Shout, complain and kick up a fuss - you are innocent and pretty sure the Thai authorities are just after some money
    2) Contact The British Consulate or High Commission immediately
    3) Ring your mum


    Question 10 / 10:

    If you are arrested with drugs in Thailand, which of these is true:

    1) You will not have a criminal record in the UK because it happened overseas
    2) You will get bail and could then escape the country
    3) You will never be able to visit Thailand again

    Their advice for question 8.

    8) Never travel across a border in a car with people you don’t know, or drive across borders with unknown companions. If they are smuggling drugs in the car, you too could be liable for prosecution and could be charged as an accomplice
    So organised border runs are a no no?
