Sad news for Thailand

The U.K. Government has advised that Britons should avoid all but essential travel to Bangkok was extended to the whole of Thailand late Tuesday because of "increasing tension" in the country.
Tuesday night's statement from the Foreign Office said it had changed its travel advice "to advise against all but essential travel to the whole of Thailand".

The Foreign Office website said "substantial numbers of troops" were deployed in central Bangkok in the early hours of today (Wednesday) and there had been protests and violent incidents in other parts of Thailand including popular tourist destinations such as Pattaya, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai and Ayuthaya in the past week.
