Earlier on this month, Thailand lifted the curfew from the most popular areas, including Phuket, Pattaya and Koh Samui. However, Bangkok and Chiang Mai remain under curfew as a result of the protests that happened on May 22.
As reported in the Telegraph, Thailand’s Tourism Association has tried to reassure potential visitors that the country is safe to travel to since the National Council for Peace and Order took over. However, visits have been down since May 22.
The Foreign Office has warned travellers to keep their opinions on the coup to themselves, and to not make ‘political’ statements in public.
“It is illegal to criticise the coup and you should be wary of making political statements in public,” reads a statement of the Foreign Office website. “Some anti-coup demonstrations are taking place in Bangkok and some other cities. These could become violent. You should exercise extreme caution and remain alert to the situation.”
