The Red Shirts in Bangkok - Penfold's update
This has caused widespread fear among travellers. But, are visitors right to stay away from Thailand? Or is this just scaremongering?
However, I think the US and Australian governments have over-reacted and I believe that if you are travelling to other destinations within Thailand then it will be relatively safe. Although there have been past protests in some of the key tourist destinations, such as Pattaya, the current unrest is confined to central Bangkok.
I will of course be publishing further updates, as and when the situation changes, so don't forget to regularly check my site.
