Travelling to Phuket and transiting through Bangkok airport

Posted by ransid_sparky on 16/5/2010 at 16:03

Hi - can anyone offer advice please. I am travelling to Phuket early June with my wife. We fly from London and transit through Bangkok airport. Very concerned about the ensuing trouble in Bangkok and closure of British Embassy. Considering changing our plans to another destination outside of Thailand. Can anyone offer advice please. Many thanks.

The trouble has been limited to Bangkok so far. You shouldn't have any problems in the southern islands, but do keep up to date with the news!

South is quiet. No need to worry.
