The research instruments consisted of a questionnaire about general information, safety concern level, safety satisfaction level, and a semi-structured interview about security management of Na Jomtien Municipality.

Quantitative data were analyzed using mean, standard deviation, and analyzed the qualitative data using coding analysis. The results were that foreign tourists had a high level of security concern and a high level of safety satisfaction.
