Is the situation stable in Thailand? should I cancel my visit?

Recommended Posts

I took my own advice and came, arrived yesterday in Patts. Saw something about the protest on TV this morning, then went down to Pig and Whistle for the small english breakfast. Didn't see any protestors... enjoyed my brekkie. :lsmile

I went into Bangkok today to the Royal Thai police HQ and saw some protesters outside, they were in a very festive mood, a lot of shouting but no aggression atall. The main entrance is blocked off big time and there are a few hundred police inside the walls with riot gear on waiting to see if anything happens. It does not look like it will from my time there today. Afterwards I went to the US embassy with a friend to re new his passport and it was business as usual. No protestors around and reasonable traffic. Saw a lot of police vans parked up along Lumpini Road. But again, no sign's of any trouble. Just the smallish mob at the police HQ. I never felt threatened at any time while around the police building and while inside they were all smiling and laughing like nothing was going on outside.

From what I saw on the TV yesterday, the show will resume Friday.

I found that very disconcerting.

It looks like things are not getting better to say the least, Yingluck dissolves parliament but supporters of the protest are saying that it is not enough. I hope this ends soon and with no more blood.

While I don't care for the practices of the current government, rule by protests of minority is not the way to go either. Yingluck had a chance to become a good PM. All she had to do was put the country first instead of focusing on getting her brother back (and potentially in power).

 

I left Bangkok early this morning so I could avoid the mess of today and whatever happens in the future.

One of the many ironies in this recent uproar is that the only recent elected Thai government to serve a complete term was the first Thaksin administration.
