MOSCOW, December 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Anti-governmental protests that continue to hit Thailand’s capital, Bangkok, do not affect Russian tourists holidaying in the kingdom of Southeast Asia, the Association of Tour Operators of Russia said on Tuesday with reference to the Tourism Authority of Thailand.
The situation remained calm in Thailand’s resorts and Russian tourists continued to enjoy their holidays, the association said. Nevertheless, tourists are recommended to use caution and avoid crowded places over resumption of protests in Bangkok.
“All tourist attractions in Bangkok work in a normal mode, but to avoid travel troubles tourists are recommended to use alternative types of transport. International and domestic flights in Thailand are fulfilled in compliance with the schedule,” the association said.
The deputy governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand, Juthaporn Rerngronasa, said despite tensions in the country the influx of tourists remained unchanged as tour operators redirect their tourists to Thailand’s resorts.
The Tourism Authority forecasts that in 2013 around 1.6 million Russian tourists will visit Thailand, up by 30 percent year-on-year.
On November 26, the Russian Foreign Ministry recommended Russian tourists to refrain from visiting Bangkok and those who are staying in the Thai capital to use caution.
