This is going to sound really silly. I really really want to go to Thailand. I love the culture and I long to visit all those beautiful temples. However, I can't help but feel scared from all the stories I hear about tourists being murdered and having read the Foreign Office travel advice about the threat of terroism particularly in tourist areas I am having my doubts. Not to mention bird flu etc.
I live in London which is not the safest of cities but I am used to it and it doesn't bother me so much.
One minute I am encouraged and ready to book my trip and the next I am almost paralysed by fear. I really want to get over my fears as I don't want to miss out on a great experience. I know about 750,000 tourists visit Thailand from the UK alone, soit can't be that bad. Is my fear justified or am I just being silly?
