Big Brother is watching you. And that's especially true in Thailand if you're reading George Orwell's 1984 -- which has allegedly been banned by the military-controlled government.\n\nIndeed, The Hunger Games isn't the only book to have offended Thai leaders following its recent military coup. A guide published in a Philippine Airlines in-flight magazine to help visitors "blend in" warns tourists to leave their dissident reading material at home.\n\n"Don't carry George Orwell's dystopian novel '1984'. You don't want to be mistaken for an 'anti-coup protester'", it cautions, along with advice on always carrying identification and asking a soldier for a selfie before you take one. \n\nOf course, it also says the nation is still "very safe for tourists". But apparently not for revolutionary literature.\n\nIn recent months, 1984 readers have reportedly been arrested; the book has become an apparent tool of protest, with silent readings and screenings of the movie being shut down by authorities. \n\nA guide to travel in Thailand from an in-flight magazine of Philippine Airlines. pic.twitter.com\/4cvolz9yja\n\u2014 Oh Wong-Arthichart (@oh_kub) August 4, 2014\n\u201cThe best books... are those that tell you what you know already\u201d, Orwell wrote in the controversial book.\n\nThe same goes for in-flight magazines, we suppose -- especially those telling you to not emulate local revolutionaries while you're on vacation.\n\n\nChloe Pantazi is an editorial assistant on Thrillist's travel team.
