If it is safe for you to do so, please call the British Embassy on +66(0)2 305 8333 (24 hours).

Are you injured?

If you are seriously injured, you may need to go to hospital right away. You should also go if you have hurt your head or were unconscious for even a short time. Call The Tourist Police on 1155 for advice or Tourist Assistance Centre (TAC) on 1672 for assistance getting to a hospital.

We have provided some more detailed advice above on how the British Embassy can support you, if you are safe and feel able to read it. This information includes:
