Caution on Thai travel

EMERGENCY: Postpone trips to Bangkok, southern Thai provinces, says ministry

KUALA LUMPUR: THE Foreign Affairs    Ministry  has  advised Malaysians to avoid travelling to certain parts of Thailand.


 It   issued a travel advisory yesterday,   cautioning citizens  to not  venture into Bangkok and the southern Thai provinces of Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani and Samut Prakan.

"Following the bomb explosions in Bangkok since Jan 15 and the emergency decree declared by the caretaker government of Thailand on Jan 21, Malaysians should consider postponing   non-essential visits to the region for personal safety and security reasons for the time being."

The ministry   advised Malaysians    already in the affected region to closely monitor and follow instructions issued by   Thai authorities.


The advisory said those who  needed   assistance could   contact the Malaysian embassy in Bangkok at +662-629-6800 during office hours and +6687-028-4659 after working hours.

The Thai government had,  on Tuesday,  imposed a 60-day state of emergency,  allowing  security forces to impose curfews, detain suspects without charge, censor media, ban political gatherings of more than five people and declare areas off-limits.

Nine people have been killed and hundreds injured in two months of protests in Bangkok. The protests are against  Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra in the run-up to the Feb 2 elections there.  


Protesters have rejected the call for polls,  with   the opposition Democrat Party   boycotting it.  

Protesters are  demanding that Yingluck resign to make way for an appointed government to implement reforms to fight corruption.

The protest sites have been hit by a series of attacks,   with   both sides saying   the other was     responsible.


On Sunday, dozens of people were wounded when two grenades exploded at   one of the  sites.

 Two days earlier, one man was killed and dozens wounded in another grenade attack.

The protests have also been plagued by drive-by shootings.
