    Thumbs up Oh dear god what have I done... Vaper Travel Fail

    Hi all!

    I'm in a bit of a predicament... I've been vaping for just over 8 months now and haven't touched a cigarette and like most vapers don't really have a reason to stop vaping. I enjoy it, it's affordable and my health has returned...

    Have had a pretty shit few months and decided to go on holiday and am going to Thailand.

    Small problem....apparently E-Cigarettes are illegal there!

    Has anyone been to Thailand recently? I was thinking about not taking any with me, and finding some markets and looking for ego's and dekang.... or do I not buy in case it's a setup and then I get put in some murky Thai jail

    It really ruins my whole plan of sitting pool side in 35 degree heat drinking a super large cocktail and chain vaping!

    Hey Kittie


    Dont sweat it. I am here in Thailand as its my place of employment. Bring all your kit. My PV travels in the pocket along with a spare in the carry on bag, and the juice in the 100ml liquid bag. Never had a problem at customs or airport security.

    Out and about, you wont have any problems. Most people that see you "Doing it" think its cool, and a few are interested?

    Good luck and Vape on!!

    I go there often and take my e-cigs.

    You will be fine.

    You can buy them at MBK and most markets as well.

    Sounds very much like our scenario here. People looking in from the outside often get the impression that ecigs are illegal here.
    I wouldn't worry about it, it's heroin they will try and snatch you up for, heard a few wild stories a few years back.

    Yay! This is all good news, thank you everyone!

    Will probably just take a couple of ego twists and a couple of star dusts.... I vape about 3ml per day so x 10 days should get away with 30 - 50 ml of juice. Knowing me it will be more than 3ml because it's holidays and I'm going to a resort spa style place...with lots of cocktails

    I'll separate it all and put it in my suitcase, but when I have been to Melbourne / Sydney and Coolangata airports I also had a PV in my pocket and went through metal detectors without issue.

    I am just freaking a bit because it's my first time overseas and Thai jails don't sound like a fun trip

    Thanks everyone... Dee_Dee can you PM me the email? Would be good to print it out and keep a copy just incase lol

    Good thing you noticed before heading off on your holiday Kittie. Would be terrible to find out the hard way on arrival in Thailand if it wasn't OK and become the latest news headline.
