Tourists adjust their travel plans to Thailand
« on: January 16, 2014, 03:36:04 PM »
BANGKOK, 16 January 2014 (NNT) — Tourists have reportedly made adjustments to their travel plans to Thailand to cope with the ongoing protests in Bangkok.

After the PDRC’s big rally to immobilize Bangkok, 7 main intersections were blocked off which rendered many roads becoming inaccessible. Tourists, therefore, were forced to find detours and change their original travel plans.

Many travelers had walked through the protesting crowd as roads were cordoned off, but were rather taken aback by how peaceful the demonstrations were. Others chose to avoid the protesters and looked for viable detours to reach their destinations.

A couple from Korea, traveling to Thailand for the first time, had taken many photographs of the ongoing demonstrations and stated that the situation is not as bad as they had thought before arriving in the capital.

Others saw the political impasse as a short term occurrence. Dale Lawrence, President of Skal International Bangkok, a tourism industry association, stated that he was still confident in Thailand and that the country will find a way to resolve its differences and move forward as it has always done.

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.
