Due to the current protests, at least 45 nations have issued travel warnings and the hotel occupancy has dropped to 50% as compared to a seasonal norm of up to 90%. The Thai government declared a 60-day state of emergency starting from today in Bangkok in response to the antigovernment protests. The decree covers Bangkok and surrounding provinces and allows security agencies to impose curfews and declare areas off-limits. The protesters are currently occupying seven Bangkok intersections, disrupting traffic, work and shopping at some of the capital's main tourism areas.

So, the overall situation is unpredictable and the ongoing protests are occuring majorly in Bangkok area are expected to continue. There have also been smaller protests in other areas of Thailand, including Phuket and Chiang Mai. Most of the tourist attractions in and around Bangkok such as the Grand Palace, Vimanmek Mansion, Siam Paragon as well as most hotels, convention centers, restaurants and entertainment centers in the capital remain open to visitors. Visitors should avoid rally location as the protests could turn violent and use the skytrain, airport or subway rail link to get to and from destinations as a precaution against unforeseen traffic delays caused by several road closures.
