Yesterday, we posted some of the areas in the city to be avoided (http://asia.businesstraveller.com/asia-pacific/news/protests-bring-bangkok-to-a-standstill-this-weekend), courtesy of the Tourism Authority of Thailand.
The airport authority says they have a contingency plan but won’t go into details – as expected, except to say that passengers should check in 3-4 hours before departure.
Yesterday, I had a conversation with two long-time expat residents, and their attitude is “Another trying time for Thailand…we’ve seen it all before.”
From them comes the advice: just have to wait and see, anything can happen. And after, life goes on.
So Martyn, stay put where you are for the meantime. If we hear of anything from our end, we’ll be sure and let everyone know ASAP.
