Tourism Warning: Northern Thailand is not a suitable tourist destination during mid-February to April due to the annual forest fires deliberately set by rural people in the national parks and elsewhere. Even though the reach of government is everywhere through the top-heavy administration of every province, law enforcement is virtually non-existent.

Backpackers murdered by Thai police officer in row at restaurant. The Independent, 10 September 2004. "There have been several murders of foreign tourists in Thailand including that of 23-year-old Kirsty Jones from Brecon, south Wales, who was murdered in a guesthouse in Chiang Mai in August 2000. Last month, a Scottish backpacker Mark Lemetti, 24, was beaten to death in southern Thailand. Violent crime rarely affects visitors to Kanchanaburi, but last year a French tourist was shot by a robber on a motorbike while walking to his guesthouse with friends."

Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certifies Thailand's chief logging agency. WRM Bulletin 48 (July 2001). FSC certification, done with a goal of maximizing the supply of certified wood and without taking into account the needs of participants in forest ecosystems such as birds, gives a cover to the crooks at Thailand's Forest Industry Organisation (FIO). See "Is certification the solution?" WRM Bulletin 53 (December 2001).
