If they are not suicide or "Murder" (heaven forbid, How do these Accidents Happen? There are just so many of the the last two years all over Thailand. Should Tourist Accommodation, from Resorts to Guesthouses with Balconies be compelled by new Laws to raise the height of Balcony walls or put additional rails onto the concrete ones? Are the balconies too low.Slippery tiles on balconies? Surely alcohol does not play a part in all of them?Death of Tourists is becoming a Major Topic in conversations these days and also  among  Airline Staff, Tour Operators and
 Travel Agents.Please give your views?
