Is it safe to travel to Thailand

2 reasons why it is again safe to travel to Thailand:

  • the US State Department has already stopped their travel advisory for Thailand

  • after any unrest or curfew has been lifted in Thailand, it's always amazing how fast Thai people return to their well known smiling and peaceful life.

If you still are not convinced, then do know that the recent unrest between the yellow-shirts PAD and the red-shirts UDD was only concentrated in a few areas in Bangkok. It has been safe all the time to travel to other Thai destinations like Phuket or Chiang Mai. Unlike the previous time: no airports were part of the unrest and all flights are running normally at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport.

Thailand has always been a destination for budget holidays, where backpackers can find cheap accommodation for next to nothing. One man's loss is another man's treasure: the unrest in Bangkok caused such an unseen drop in foreign visitors to Thailand that traveling to Thailand has become cheaper than ever. Thailand's hotels and resorts are in a price war and cheap all inclusive holidays are a plenty. Also note cheap air fares: the Thai Airways' Discover Thailand pass only costs $278 and lets you fly to any 3 cities within Thailand.

For Americans, Thailand is even more inviting than ever: the Thai Tourist Authority from now onwards waives all fees and any visa requirements for all American travelers who wishing to stay in Thailand beyond the normally 30 days.

Is it safe to walk on the beaches of Thailand?

Koh Samui Thailand

The only time Thailand could become not safe is when you are walking on the beach at Koh Samui and some hungry Thailand monkey wants to snatch some fruits out of your hands. Other than that, traveling to Thailand is as safe as ever but cheaper than ever!
