The overall level of the advice has not changed on; the FCO currently advise against all but essential travel to the whole of Thailand. More details here

Travel Summary

  • We advise against all but essential travel to the whole of Thailand due to the increasingly volatile and tense political situation.  Violent incidents of an unpredictable nature are occurring in many parts of Thailand.

  • On 28 April there were serious clashes between troops and anti-government protestors as they travelled towards Talad Thai in Pathumthani province (close to Bangkok’s second airport, Don Muang). One soldier was killed and at least ten people were injured.

  • In the early hours of 27 April, substantial numbers of troops deployed in Central Bangkok. On 26/27 April there were at least eight incidents in various parts of Thailand involving protestors setting up barricades, in some instances leading to clashes with the security forces.

In summary for those in Bangkok - stay indoors - the temptation is to go and have a look about. is strong - resist that. Experience says a lot of people will head down to the islands in the south or to neighbouring countries such as Laos, Cambodia or Vietnam.  Airlines are still catching up on their schedules after the ash cloud crisis but they are working at full pelt to get people out.

This advice does not affect Bangkok Airports but we advise keeping a close eye on our news pages and through the BBC here.

If anyone needs to reroute or date change their ticket please call or email us - obviously this a fluid fast changing situation but we are open till 7pm tonight . All our opening hours are here
