Denmark: Go to Bangkok – but keep informed

Denmark’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs removed on Thursday its advice against non-essential travel to Bangkok. The Ministry now only advises travelers to Bangkok to exercise caution and keep themselves informed about the local situation.
 Denmark has never warned against travel to the major tourist destinations such as Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Lampang, Sukhothai, Kanchanaburi, Ratchaburi, Hua Hin, Pattaya, Koh Chang, Rayong, Phuket, Krabi, Koh Samui and all provinces in southern Thailand – but many Danes have along with most other nationalities mistaken the travel warning for Bangkok as a travel warning to all of Thailand.
Consequently, tourists at these destinations currently report that the weather is as wonderful as it is always at this time of the year, the food is as delicious as they remembered it from last time they were here and the people as helpful and smiling as ever. Only difference is, there are less other tourists to share it with.
The other Nordic countries have so far not downgraded their advice against non-essential travel to Bangkok.
