Singapore updates advice on travel to Thailand

Singapore on December 27 updated the advice on travel to Thailand, showing concerns on the spreading of protest areas.

It said "A curfew has also been imposed at the Thai-Japanese Stadium (also known as the Bangkok Youth Centre) in the district of Din Daeng in Bangkok, and surrounding areas within fifty metres of the stadium. Political demonstrations have now expanded beyond the main protest area at the Democracy Monument along Ratchadamnoen Avenue and are taking place in various locations within Bangkok, including at some government buildings. Protest areas may also include popular tourist areas like Silom Road and Ratchaprasong intersection, and new locations for street protests could be announced at short notice."

Singaporeans who wish to travel to Bangkok during this period may encounter increased security presence and traffic congestion. They are advised to stay away from large crowds and demonstrations, monitor local news and developments, take all necessary precautions for personal safety, and purchase comprehensive travel and medical insurance.
