Lonely Planet review

While the craze for visiting imprisoned foreigners in Bangkok’s notorious jail Khlong Prem has cooled off, some travellers still make the trek. Visiting details are discussed on several websites, notably www.phaseloop.com/foreignprisoners/prisoners-thailand.html and www.khaosanroad.com. If you want to see a particular prisoner the best approach is to first contact the prisoner’s Bangkok embassy. Consular officials can tell you whether the prisoner, or any other prisoner, wants to be seen; note that they won’t give names or details unless the prisoner has authorised them to do so. If so, they can help out and advise on visiting times, usually a couple of days a week. Don’t try going directly to the prison without a letter from the prisoner’s embassy, as you might be refused entry.
