We wanted to update you on the situation in Thailand.
As reported in the media, with ongoing political unrest the Thai army has enforced a military coup, to maintain civil safety during the transitional process of electing a new Government.
News reports appear grim but, in reality, these events are limited to particular areas and are not affecting the areas in which we visit. Suvarnabhumi International Airport and Don Mueang Airport in Bangkok are operating normally, and despite some heavier traffic, your airport transfer will be unaffected.
One thing to check before your departure is your insurance documentation. Many, if not all, insurance companies will include a section in the fine print which excludes claims involving martial law and military insurrections. While this should not affect any claims made for general reasons (lost baggage, stolen goods etc) it is best to check with your travel insurance provider before travelling to be sure of your terms and conditions.
Our guided activities in Bangkok are in popular tourist areas, away from protest sites. Our journey to Khao Sok National Park, Koh Phi Phi and Koh Phangan are also unaffected.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us. Upon arrival in Bangkok, your tour leaders and local guides will answer all your questions, and will ensure everything runs smoothly and your trip will be the adventure of a lifetime!
See you soon in Thailand!
