Scandinavian Embassies in Thailand: It Is Not Over

Sunday, 14 March began large demonstrations in central Bangkok with the participation of about 100,000 demonstrators. It is not known how long the protests will continue, that becomes clear when you look at the Scandinavian travel notices, which still advises Scandinavians to keep away from the red streets.
The main demonstration will take place at Sanam Luang Square in front of the palace and at Phan Fah Bridge, Ratchadamnoen Avenue. Demonstrations can move between different locations on short notice, and development of the situation is at all unpredictable, writes the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

“Due to the security risk in connection with the demonstrations (and the secondary traffic problems), we recommend travellers to stay away from places where there are mass gatherings and demonstrations, particularly in the above key areas of Bangkok. If staying in the popular Khaosan road, caution should be exercised since this lies close to the demonstration area.”
