Anti-Government Protestors Have Relocated to a New Site

May 15, 2014 Destination Thailand No Comments Email Email

The anti-government group, the People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), has relocated from Lumphini Park in Bangkok to a new site at the Makkhawan Rangsan Bridge on Ratchadamnoen Nok Avenue on 12 May 2014, in the afternoon.

Other anti-government groups are rallying at the Government Complex on Chaeng Watthana Road, as well as at Government House and some small areas on Ratchadamnoen Nok Avenue. 

Meanwhile, the pro-government group, the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD), is rallying in support of the caretaker government on Aksa Road in Bangkok’s western outskirts.

The Senate on 12 May held an informal meeting to discuss possible solutions to the country’s political crisis.

Bangkok is a large city and so it is possible for local residents and international visitors to avoid the demonstration sites and rally routes. Traffic in the most parts of the capital is moving normally, as almost all roads and expressways are not affected by the demonstrations. 

Tourists and the tourism industry have been informed that all relevant public and private agencies would exercise utmost efforts to ensure tourist’s convenience. All public transport and tourist attractions, including airports, tourist sites, and shopping malls, are currently open and operating as per normal.
