Following the declaration of martial law by the Royal Thai Army, which covers the entire Thailand with effective from 03.00 hour today, life in the kingdom continues as normal. According to the army statement, this is not a coup, but a mean to restore peace and order for people from all sides, and that the public should not to panic and to live their lives as normal.
There is currently no curfew in place in Bangkok or any other tourist destinations in Thailand. Local residents and international visitors can continue to travel within Bangkok and other destinations in the country as usual. However, air passengers with flights depart out of Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang International Airports are advised to allocate at least 3-4 hours prior to their scheduled flight departure time to avoid heavy traffic on certain roads.
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is closely monitoring the situation, and would like to inform tourists and the tourism industry that all concerned public and private agencies will exercise utmost efforts to ensure tourist’s convenience. All public transport and tourist attractions, including airports, tourist sites and shopping malls, are currently open and operating as normal.
Meanwhile, the situation at the rally sites of both anti- and pro-government groups in Bangkok remains normal.
The anti-government groups’ rally sites are situated in areas surrounding Government House – at Makkhawan Rangsan Bridge on Ratchadamnoen Nok Avenue and Chamai Maruchet Bridge on Phitsanulok Road – and at Government Complex on Chaeng Wattana Road as well as at the Democracy Monument on Ratchadamnoen Klang Avenue (a camping site).
The pro-government group’s rally site is on Aksa Road in Bangkok’s western outskirts.
Tourists visiting the kingdom are advised to be vigilant and avoid rally sites and demonstration marches, as well as areas where crowds may gather.
Roads in Bangkok’s areas where the protests are taking place may experience heavy traffic or a temporary closure due to large crowds gathering and blockage of traffic lane by the protesters’ rally activities.
Despite traffic disruptions on certain roads in some small parts of Bangkok due to the current political demonstrations and the army’s movements, life in the most parts of the Thai capital and throughout Thailand continues as usual. All public transport and tourist attractions, including airports, tourist sites and shopping malls, are currently open and operating normally.
Bangkok is a large city and so it is possible for local residents and international visitors to avoid the demonstration sites and rally routes. Traffic in the most parts of Bangkok is moving normally as almost all roads and expressways are not affected by the demonstrations.
All major tourist attractions in the Thai capital, including the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, the Grand Palace and the Temple of Dawn, are open normally.
