No travel warning from USA - just a statement to stay away from protest areas and keep an eye on your surroundings.

When the US issues a red alert warning and closes its embassy then is the time to heed the warnings...It was after all on the money both times when it closed its doors when the military starting getting serious with the red shirts 3 years back and also warned of a high terrorist warning when the Iranian blew his legs off during the failed taxi attack.Their counter surveillance is usually spot on so if the embassy suddenly closes its doors then's the time to seriously consider ones safety!

There are no warnings, only advisory!

There simply is no need for any country at this stage to issue travel warnings!

There is an extremely marked differences between people like expats who are willing to search the world for more interesting destinations

and places to live, away from familiar, jobs, protections and insurances and modern tourists.

The travelling class are more middle class than ever these days.

It doesn't take much to deter a tourist, choosing between destinations, as to whether there is any risk involved in a holiday.

Most people looking for an interesting and picturesque diversion, don't want to become a target in a crowd shootout in Bangkok,

which last time involved the Airport.

I was at the airport this morning to catch (ZH 9004) the early flight to Shenzhen. The airport was almost empty. No more than 50 people in the whole departure hall. It is true. No queue no nothing. Almost haunted.

most probably they extend their stay to see what comes next

Just keep away from the center and go to the nice places, you can fly all over Thailand,

go and experience the real culture, the north of Thai is at its best now lovely flowers and scenery

many places to go ,enjoy yourself,enjoy Thailand

But I guess most peoples comes for the beach, and they hard to find in the north.

However the second assumption was that if warning of these countries are raised to Level 5 or prohibiting their citizens to visit Thailand, then tourist arrivals this month will decline instantly by 8-10% with growth of just 7% or 25.5 million tourists, a drop of 650,000 tourists from the projected 13% growth and the expected loss 25 billion

AND If a pig had wings it would be an eagle. No need for any country ti issue a travel warning. Peaceful protests, peaceful response.

I know this sounds wrong but every time there is trouble, it causes me no hardship as I was lucky I wasnt flying. Just empty beaches and cheap hotels only trouble was getting a Bangkok taxi but I am used to that.

A a general rule how many people really look at these sites to see if warnings are in place?

More damaging are the news reports on the likes of Yahoo, BBC and other internet sites. People then begin to realise there are problems in Thailand. Now they maybe go to look at their government sites and see the warnings and make a decision on travel.

The last 3 days on Yahoo there have been stories of problems in Thailand. That might make a bigger difference long term.

TAT board chairperson Miss Pensuda Prai-aram said that the latest warning by five countries raised total countries which have issued travel warnings to 28 from earlier 23.

That would account for the recent downturn in Thailand Elite Card sales.

I think that would be the main worry for tourists, getting stuck in the Airport with no flights out!
