MOSCOW, November 26, 14:10 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian tourists holidaying in Thailand’s Bangkok do not complain of inconvenience caused by escalating anti-governmental riots in the Thai capital, a spokesperson for the Russian Union of Travel Industry, Irina Tyurina, told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“The situation in Thailand’s resorts remains calm and there are no tensions there,” she said, adding that tour operators changed travel bus routes to bypass areas hit by protests. “The Russian Union of Travel Industry has received no complaints from Russians holidaying in Bangkok.”
Earlier in the day the Russian travel agency Rostourism called on Russian tourists in Bangkok to use caution and avoid crowded places.
“According to Rostourism’s information, the situation is absolutely calm in Thai resorts. Russians holiday there normally and face no problems,” Rostourism spokesperson Irina Shchegolkova told Itar-Tass. “As concerns Bangkok, tourists may feel certain inconvenience over tensions in the city. But the Thai authorities do their utmost to bring the situation back to normal,” she said.
The Russian embassy in Thailand also recommended Russian tourists to refrain from trips to Bangkok, except for transfers to Suvarnabhumi Airport, the embassy’s public relations officer, Alexander Mrykin, told Itar-Tass, adding that no tourist had addressed the embassy for help over large-scale anti-governmental protests in Bangkok.
