Bangkok Jan 22nd

Travel Alerts   /  

The Thai government has imposed a 60 days state of emergency in Bangkok and surrounding provinces from Wednesday 22nd to help contain the street protests that have blocked parts of the capital.
Ms. Yingluck says her government has no intention of confronting the protesters, who have been allowed to close off several government buildings, including her own.

Reports said they will use peaceful negotiations with the protesters in line with international standards.
To-date nothing really has changed from the current situation other than more police presence at various road blocks.

Tourists to avoid being within close vicinity of these demonstration sites, e.g. Pathumwan crossing, Rajaprasong crossing, Sala Daeng/Lumpini crossing, Asok & Latphrao intersection and Victory Monument roundabout.

The main temples, museums and Grand Palace are all located far away in the old part of town, near the river. From the start of the demonstrations we have not had to cancel any tour or excursion in town and no real inconvenience to our guests was experienced. All airports within Thailand are operating as normal. Intertravel
