‘Mafia island’: From paradise to bloodshed


Lite Beer

Recommended Posts

What's all the fuss? We all know that this will be covered up just like the last murders. There is no rule of law against the rich and powerful.

No, I think you are wrong. This mafia island is coming too much in the spotlight now so they will soon understand they cannot afford any wrongdoing anymore.

May be even justice will be done one day.

Guessing that things like the recent gruesome double murder (of course "not committed by Thai"), the suspicious death of an Englishman one year ago, the recent death of a diver and now this unclear death have happened all the time and been swept under the carpet it is good that the crimes over there are now coming into public and the internet is watching.

Sometimes things have to become worse until they can get better - even if I doubt in this Koh Tao case that they are worse now - it might be just things are uncovered.

This won't slow down tourism there.

How many check for sinister news stories when booking a ticket?

You're kidding, right?

Nope.

The only reason I know is from being a member here. How did you find out?

Stories like this don't even make the news in most countries.

Plenty of murders happen in Thailand, it's not these things that stop tourists. You stop and think to keep your wits about you perhaps, but still holiday there.

Let's see how tourist numbers drop from this particular case.

According to people i know on the island they've already plummeted. Its big news in the UK and it continues on social media as do other incidences that look suspicious.

In the age of social media things are very different, for good or bad.

Seeing as it put up as Travel Advice - Warnings at least a few ought to see it and hopefully change their plans to visit the bl00dy place

Indonesia has been upgraded to full heightened terrorist alert.

It didn't stop anyone from going.

How many check the travel advice sites for Thailand? Not many, especially the younger 25yo groups which seem to find trouble.

Koh tao is a beautyful place with 1 mio visitor coming every year with in total 12 fatality in 2014 incl accident and homocuid and suicide

So do the math that nothing

On the phollipones on 2014 more than 300 tourist lost their live just in manila not the 7000 islands with ransome kidnapping incl
