Updated advice for people with Thailand Holidays booked

The Foreign Office has just amended its advice regarding travel to Thailand.

The advice previously was not to travel unless it was essential. The latest advice is now to exercise caution if travelling to Bangkok or Chiang Mai but non essential travel can take place.

Political stability continues to be a problem in Thailand (Bangkok in particular). There is still a risk of violence and further demonstrations but as at 29th May 2010 life in both cities has generally returned to normal.

There was a curfew in place in Bangkok and 23 other provinces which has now been lifted.

Travellers who are just transitting through Bangkok airport are at least risk as the airport managed to escape much of the disruption that occured. If you are travelling away from the airport then you are advised to exercise caution and avoid demonstrations and large gatherings. Advice still remains to avoid travel to the Preah Vihear temple area and also to the far southern provinces of Pattani, Yala, Narathiwat and Songkhla.
