    Thailand tops the list of deadly destinations for Australian travellers



    Thailand is the most dangerous destination for Australian tourists, with 203 deaths recorded in the last year.

    Key points:


    • Philippines, Indonesia, US and Vietnam follow Thailand on list
    • Thailand also topped number of hospitalisations, missing persons reports
    • DFAT warns there is no legal right to consular assistance


    Philippines was next with 126 deaths, followed by Indonesia, the United States and Vietnam.

    The main causes of death were illness, natural causes and accidents.
    The figures are part of an annual Consular State of Play report, issued by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).

    Thailand also topped the list of consular cases (893), hospitalisations (195) and missing persons reports (74) during the 2016/17 financial year.
    Officials urged Australians to take out travel insurance and warned of the limits to the consular services available.

    "Although we are proud of the level of assistance we can offer, there is no legal right to consular assistance and no-one
    should assume that assistance will be provided," DFAT said in the report.
    "We may limit our assistance if we consider the circumstances warrant, for example, where the person's actions were illegal, or has put
    themselves or others at risk through deliberate or repeated reckless or negligent acts, or the person has a pattern of behaviour that has
    required multiple instances of consular assistance previously.

    "The Australian Government cannot get Australians out of prison or detention overseas, or prevent an Australian from being deported."
    Australians made 10 million overseas trips in the 2016/17 financial year.

    Ocker land is surprisingly close to most of these Asian destinations. As things get more expensive at home, they will be attracted by cheap beer and dirty wimmin.

    I don't think the Thai health tourism is supposed to work this way.

    Actually ... Sydney -> Bangkok is about 10 hours (for the first 5 hours, you are still flying over Australia!)

    London -> Bangkok is about 11 & 1/2 hours


    That said ... flying out of Darwin changes that equation dramatically.

    From Sydney/Melbourne you fly over Darwin.
    Darwin to BKK isn't too bad with Jetstar. Only 3 hours more or less in SIN. Going the other way is another matter. 10 hours in SIN.
    Malaysian was OK via KL but they've gone. I shall be trying Philippines in December and we'll see how they go.
    Hey JJ,

    Don't go to sleep,

    Time is tickin.

    it would be interesting to see the actual ratio of tourist number versus deaths/injuries.
    just the number of deaths is meaningless unless you can show a ratio.

    When all the good white Aussies die in Thailand the Government will start sending the coons over.

    No worries.
