Hi!

Will be going to BKK from 11 to 14 March so I'd appreciate if anyone can share with me on how's the situation there ...

Been reading reports that there are frequent demonstrations in BKK nowadays ... is it still safe for venturing tourists? Pardon my ignorance and kiasi-ism as this will be my first trip to BKK or should I say Thailand ...

TIA! :)

I would say the demonstrations usually looks more exciting in the papers than in real life. Don't worry unduly, be smart and stay one side should you see a crowd. That's about it!

Was there couple of days ago and everything looks fine to me. Just a few bombings here and there, cars overturned and some body parts on the streets. Other than that it is very peaceful.:bsmilie:

Just a little joke my naughty fingers did on you, not me. I didn't see anything unusual when I left but don't know what will happen on the 11th.:dunno:

folks, places you probably go will be shopping areas so definitely no demonstrations or such. These demonstrations are outside the PM's office which is like miles away..

Well, got friends who juz came back that they say its ok.

Juz avoid places near the main government building, unless u wanna join in the crowd to shoot really great photos of the demostration.

Sometimes reports are factual, but most of the time, its the paranoia and fear that plays up the situation a hundred poof then what its supposed to be. Juz like the 'freak snowstorm' in Japan that was reported last year killing a few ppl. Its constrained to a few prefectures and common sense juz tells me to avoid danger spots.

To play it safe, best to identify yourself as Malaysian not Singaporean.... Elements that want Thaskin to fall are using the Shin Temasek deal as a friction point to stir up unrest. With a mob, sometimes its not hard to have one incident trigger off a entire riot aiming at Singaporean assets in BKK.
