Travel Advisory - Thailand

The warning can supposedly be found inside the in-flight magazine of Philippine Airlines and has been circulated on Twitter.

Passengers with Philippine Airlines are told that “Thailand is very safe for tourists” but are offered five tips to help “blend in”.

They include “carry your passport (or a copy) with you at all times”, “avoid wearing red t-shirts, which are association with a group opposed to the military government”, and “don’t carry George Orwell’s dystopian novel ‘1984’. You don’t want to be mistaken for an anti-coup protestor.”
Orwell's book is a popular symbol of protest in Thailand.

That was just on local TV.
Anyway, just from resding the travel sites a few years ago, I wouldn't want to go there.
