Phuket Crime

Generally Phuket has a low level of street crime. The crime in Phuket that tourists are most commonly connected with is the scams that go on created by the locals or drunken tourists wandering dark areas near the beaches. There are obviously certain seedy parts of the island that you should be weary of. Also, many tuk tuk drivers and various undesirable locals know tourists travel with lots of money and often drink too much so you have to be aware of your surroundings and be smart.
