    Could be problems. Backpacks in Bangkok have had to be a neutral orange colour since June 2011. over 5 years ago

    I would not if I were you. You are a stranger in a strange (but wonderful) land, why invite controversy. over 5 years ago

    Seriously, this is NOT an issue, Bangkok or elsewhere. Plus the fact that you are a foreigner makes it even more unlikely there will be any drama. I just got an awesome new pair of bright red running shoes and I am NOT a red shirt supported. Enjoy Thailand, I'm Australian and it's my home now. Peace KP over 5 years ago

    I have been in Thailand for a total three months ! I have had a red backpack and red clothes ! Never once has it been an issue or raised angst or controversy in my stays ! I think that if you were Thai or involved in any of the political aspects of Thailand I'm sure it may be different ! But as a "farang" you will be just fine :) over 5 years ago

    I can't believe the questions that come on this forum. Yes, you can carry any color backpack. And, you can wear any color shirt. You're not going to South Central Los Angeles for christsakes. And even if there was another political upheaval, the folks there wouldn't think twice about colored shirts. over 5 years ago

    Unless you are ethnically Thai or look it, people will not even notice your back pack is red. Even if you were, it is very infrequent that colours mean anything in Thailand, except that Thais wear yellow shirts often to show their love of their king. For the grand majority of days all other colours don't mean anything.
    Wear what you like (so long as it keeps you cool int he heat) (and that you dress respectfully in wats) over 5 years ago

    I would stay away from any demonstration in Thailand, no matter what colour backpack you had. over 5 years ago

    I was mostly concerned because I am Asian. I.e. I have brown skin, so potentially could look native, and this could potentially be more troublesome... over 5 years ago
