If there is anybody who has knowledge about the crime or safety in south east asia, please let me know what you know. I read a lot of stuff about it like the borders between Thailand and Cambodia or similar things. I was there two times. But it is hard to get a realistic picture of what is going on there. If you can help me out, please write.

thanks, david

If someone points a gun at you (anywhere in the world) ... just do whatever the person with the gun says

We have been travelling SE asia for 5 months now and we have no problems with safety so far. Just be wary of what is going on around you and avoid being larry after a few drinks. I think it is perfectly safe to travel.

Wocca gives the perfect answer (don't worry about crime, just be careful with your gear and money and enjoy your trip)

so far the terrorists do attack Thai state officials (judges, military and police personel etc) - but not civilians. From what I have heard they are related to organised crime

I've always felt totally safe everywhere in SE Asia. Although I'd probably avoid certain areas now (like many areas in Indonesia, the far South of Thailand).
