I think it’s worth reminding people again to be careful of snatch thieves. I saw this sign in Bangkok the other day. There are quite a few around. So, don’t say no-one told you. Snatch robberies like this unfortunately happen too often. Usually there are two people on a motorcycle. They usually have a knife to cut your shoulder strap. It’s best to walk towards oncoming traffic, as far away from the road as you can, and carry your bag on the shoulder furthest away from the road. If you do encounter a snatch thief, you do need to make a decision as to whether the contents are worth more than your life. An Australian tourist in Phuket didn’t want to give up her bag. The thief tried to cut the straps but in the struggle the tourist was sadly fatally stabbed.
