BANGKOK, May 23. /ITAR-TASS/. A curfew in Thailand, Southeast Asia, did not hamper Russian tourists to fly timely to Russia by nighttime flights on Friday, director for sales of Sayama Travel company Valentina Malaya told ITAR-TASS.
She also noted that it was unusually quiet and few people were seen in the tourist area overnight to Friday. “In Pattaya, we have not seen a single soldier yet. But all entertainment facilities have already closed at 10pm and streets became empty on yesterday’s evening,” Malaya said. She added that many tour operators in Thailand continue working in routine mode. “Today we even planned an excursion in Bangkok. It is still unclear whether such excursions will be arranged in the future. We are following closely the situation,” Malaya said.
In Thailand’s capital, Bangkok, public transport stopped running after 9pm local time (3 p.m. BST) on Thursday evening. Major trading centers closed an hour before this.
Roads in the Thai capital were extremely overloaded in the evening. City residents hurried to come home before the curfew starts.
