THAILAND. The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), in association with the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA), has issued a statement reassuring travellers to Thailand that the protests in Bangkok have not caused major disruption in the city.
“The city remains a safe destination for both leisure and business travellers,” the statement read. However, although this is a domestic political dispute, all foreign nationals are advised to exercise caution and avoid those areas of the city where the protesters have gathered.
While TAT and PATA understand that travellers may have some concerns about visiting Thailand at this time, the organisations stressed that most venues remain in normal operation.
Both city airports (Don Muang and Suvarnabhumi) are operating as normal, while all other international and domestic airports in Thailand also remain fully operational.
