UPDATE British Embassy Issues Travel Warning For All Thailand

Category: Tourism, Posted:27 Apr 2010 | 14:51 pm

The British Embassy in Bangkok has now expanded their Travel Advise to cover not only Bangkok but all of Thailand. In a notice sent out this morning the warning reads:

“We advise against all but essential travel to the whole of Thailand.
In the early hours of 27 April, substantial numbers of troops deployed in Central Bangkok. The entire BTS Sky train service has been suspended in Bangkok causing major disruption. On 26/27 April there were at least 8 incidents in various parts of Thailand involving protestors setting up barricades, in some instances leading to clashes with the security forces. There is escalating tension and the risk of violence across the country.”
Despite the lack of demonstrations Phuket nor any incidents the island's tourism sector has now been drawn in tighter to the growing political concerns facing other parts of the country.
Speaking to a number of hoteliers cancellations are starting to mount and the new expansion of travel warnings looks to hit closer to home.
