THAILAND POLITICAL DEVELOPMENTS, DECEMBER 2, 2013
The ongoing anti-government protests in Bangkok, which had been peaceful for 32 days, became volatile over the weekend where riot police fired tear gas canisters and water cannon to disperse protesters in restricted locations near Government House, Parliament and Ramkhamhaeng University. No tourists are hurt or affected and tourist sites remain open as usual. However, tourists are advised to be vigilant and avoid areas where crowds may gather. Given the large number of people attending rallies at the five main locations as well as marching to other different locations, roads around or within the protest areas and rally routes maybe temporarily closed to traffic. Heavy road traffic at certain times can be expected in many roads in Bangkok.
Trails of Indochina are monitoring the situation and making itinerary adjustments for in-country guests on an as-needed, daily basis. Due to an increase of traffic congestion, guests may expect earlier pick-up times for transfers from select hotels to the airport for both domestic and international flights. Essential Bangkok tours may be slightly modified at the guide’s discretion to avoid crowded areas and shopping centers such as Central World and Siam Square may be avoided. Siam Center, Siam Discovery Siam Paragon and Central World Shopping Complexes on Rama I Road as well as Major Cineplex on Ramkhamhaeng road were closed for one day on 1 December 2013.
