Again – the question.
I have same answer as always… Thailand as a country – is safe. Come and visit and ignore the craziness going on – if there is any.
Bangkok is probably not safe at this time – as 2 embassies – AUS and CA (That’s Canada… lol) have issued statements that Bangkok might not be a good place to be in the near future.
Tourists are not being targeted. Have they EVER been? Not from my understanding of it all.
Stay away from Bangkok and the southernmost 3 provinces and you’ll likely be fine. Things are coming to a head soon because Thaksin Shinawatra, ex PM is set to lose about 2 billion US Dollars. Of course he doesn’t want that to happen. He has millions of followers, mostly in the northeast of Thailand – the red shirt country.
Look for some excitement in the next few weeks… or a total non-issue.
