Bangkok Update: UK Advises Against Travel to Thailand

The British government is advising against all unnecessary travel to Thailand, as a result of the increasing violence that started in Bangkok earlier this month.

The U.S. State Department issued a similar travel alert on April 22 alerting U.S. citizens traveling to Bangkok. This was in response to several explosions that occurred in the Silom/Sala Daeng area at the Sala Daeng BTS Skytrain station.

U.S. citizens are urged to exercise caution and avoid travel to this area. Keep this in mind when considering travel to other locations in Thailand, as unexpected violence has not been ruled out.
