Thailand protests turn violent

Date: 04.12.2013

Dozens of countries have issued travel warnings for Bangkok due to volatile protests that saw three dead and over 100 people injured earlier this week, according to media reports.

This comes just as the busy holiday season begins where the capital has seen protests targeting government buildings in a call to overthrow prime minister, Yingluck Shinawatra.

The UK Foreign and Common Wealth Office reported: âViolence, including gunshots, was reported overnight on November 30 to December 1 in the area of Ramkhamhaeng University in the Bang Kapi district of Bangkok. You should avoid all protests, political gatherings and demonstrations.â

It is advising against travel to these parts of the country.

Far East product manager for Holiday Tours, Karen Camm, says they have not seen any cancellations for Thailand bookings, however. âWe do not discourage our customers from travelling to Thailand but recommend that they be vigilant and avoid the main locations in Bangkok where the anti-government protests are taking place and where crowds of protesters are gathering.â
