The ongoing anti-government protests in Bangkok have remained peaceful and despite large the sizeable demonstrators, there have been no reported cases of chaos or violence.
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has issued a statement informing travellers that all current protest sites are not situated at tourist attractions and have not hampered visitor relations.
Protest campaigns that have occurred over the past two weeks have included organised mass rallies at the Democracy Monument on weekends, daily marching campaigns to state agencies and television outlets, and rallies at several provincial administration halls.
“They are peaceful demonstrations involving government office areas, which are quite far from the tourist districts in Bangkok… however, certain parts of the city have been affected by traffic congestion,” TAT PR manager Australia and New Zealand Pongsak Kanittanon told ETB News.
“Thailand is still a safe place to visit.”
23 foreign governments issued travel advice warnings for travellers planning on visiting Thailand.
