Bangkok is Safe, Despite Previous Warnings

The Tourism Authority of Thailand released a statement today, in conjunction with the Pacific Asia Travel Association, reassuring travelers in Thailand that the protests in Bangkok have not caused major disruption in the city.

There was possible concern this past weekend that demonstrations would make the city and its surrounding areas unsafe for tourists. However, both associations are assuring visitors that the city is safe for both leisure and business travel.

Aalthough this is a domestic dispute, TAT and PATA advise foreign nationals to exercise caution and avoid the protest areas. It also is stressed that both airports (Don Muang and Suvarnabhumi) are operating as normal, all other international and domestic airports in Thailand remain fully operational,
tourist attractions in the city remain open for business, shopping malls are open, and MICE venues are open.
