Today the Royal Thai Army has imposed martial law and terminated the Centre for Administration of Peace and Order (CAPO) by pulling all the centre’s forces to the newly established Center for the Resolution of the Emergency Situation (CRES).
The CRES is now in command of the Royal Thai Police, all of the 3 armed forces and the Interior Ministry as well as all other related government units.
The Army has however insisted, that its declaration of martial law is not a Coup and is urging the public to go on with their daily lives. They stated that they want to preserve law and order in a more efficient way after the months long political crisis.
We advise all visitors to Bangkok to avoid protests sites and surrounding areas, political rallies & marches as previously communicated.
All beach resorts and other destinations within Thailand have not been affected by the political situation and the airports and other transportation systems are running as normal.
We will continue to monitor the situation and will provide further updates or any changes in travel plans for our visitors to Bangkok directly, if required.
