Thailand Says Troubles Have Ceased

After months of remaining on edge due to ongoing political protests, it appears Thailand may finally be in the clear. While attending a luncheon for Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) the organization's New York director confirmed that the nation's internal troubles are done. The declaration comes as the U.S. Department of State lifted its travel advisory to the nation.

TAT is promoting its campaign, 'Amazing Thailand Amazing Value' as a way to draw consumers back to the Land of Smiles, which, we were assured, it still is. TAT's New York director, Sirsuda Wanapinyosak, confirmed what we had been hearing from sources all along - that the violence was contained to a few areas within Bangkok and the rest of the country remained safe.

We also learned that the Thai Travel Mart will continue but it has been postponed three months. It will now be held September 8 through 10.
