Thailand Emergency Numbers
As a rule, people have a wonderful and safe time while staying in Thailand. However, accidents do occasionally take place too. Like anywhere else in the world, the climate, traffic, food, crime and health problems can potentially affect anybody at any time, from local residents, to expats and tourists. We don’t want to shock or scare you; it’s simply a good idea to be prepared in case the worst should happen. When travelling in any foreign country, it’s sensible to take precautions, plan ahead and be careful.
A good starting point is to have each of the emergency phone numbers close to hand; it’s better to have them and not need them, than need them but not have them. We’ve collected all of the major numbers for you below, so you can turn to them in case of an emergency. Hopefully you will not need to.
