Tour groups still arriving in Thailand


BANGKOK, 2 December 2013 The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has announced that the number of countries raising travel warnings on Thailand still remains at 32, and all of them have not yet increased the severity of the warnings. 

Mr. Sukree Sittiwanit, Director of TAT’s Advertising & Public Relations Department, stated that the warnings made by the 32 countries are in levels 2 and 3. No new countries have issued similar warnings either.

However, Mr. Sukree added that all foreign embassies in Thailand are keeping a close watch on the developments of the situation in order to reassess their travel warnings if needed.

President of the Association of Thai Travel Agents (ATTA), Mr. Sidivachr Cheewarattanaporn, believes that various embassies will increase the level of their travel warnings, but how many of them would do so should be clearer within 1-2 days.

The president of ATTA went on to say that group tours have not canceled their visits to the Kingdom, but have called in to receive more information on the current protest situation and its recent developments.
