MOSCOW, February 4. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Foreign Ministry and the Federal Tourism Agency have issued new warnings that visitors should avoid Thailand’s capital, Bangkok, as anti-government protests continue.
The ministry's warning says incoming tourists should head to their destinations immediately upon their arrival at Bangkok airports, staying away from the city and organizing their transfer to airports in advance of their return journey.
Hot-line telephone connections have been set up by Thailand’s state tourism agency, police, emergency offices and airport operations centers.
Thai tourism officials said demonstrations in Bangkok city were mostly non-violent. But the capital and several nearby regions are still under a two-month state of emergency, imposed to maintain order.
