    Visited Phuket last week. Heard from guide not to vape in open place. Thailand has banned carrying, vaping, buying and selling(in all forms) vaping devices. Authority is busting very hard in Bankok.
    Is vaping banned in all Thailand or in some reagions?

    From what I've read recently Thailand banned vaping in 2014 and anyone vaping in Thailand is risking a potential 10 year jail sentence.

    I've also heard there is little enforcement, but that still leaves you exposed to a very significant risk of you vape in Thailand.

    I would agree, especially as a tourist. I think you can probably bring your vape (although I might bring something inexpensive, as it could be confiscated in customs) and maybe be careful where you vape etc., in case you are "caught". It's my understanding that enforcement is pretty spotty but that it can happen. So, I would exercise due caution and/or consider other nicotine replacement depending on your level of risk aversion. Etc.

    Best of luck, perhaps someone who lives there will be able to offer more specific up to date information, and I hope you receive some.
