Thailand like most countries expect foreign holiday makers or residents to carry a copy of their passport with them as it is can be used for identification but it also shows that they have a visa to reside in the Kingdom legally.
It also is very important to have identification in case you are involved in a accident so the medical services can see who you are and where you are from in the unfortunate event you need emergency treatment, If you also have medical insurance or a medical insurance card it is also imperative to carry with you in the event you may be unconscious.
So carrying identification is important for two reasons, for the authorities in case they need to check your credentials and legality visa wise and also for medical emergency reasons.
