Canadians should 'avoid all travel' to parts of Thailand
The Canadian government has issued a travel advisory for anyone currently in or planning to travel to Thailand.
According to the government’s statement, Canadians should “exercise a high degree of caution” in the country as a whole but should “avoid all travel” to four southern provinces - Narathiwat, Pattani, Songkhla and Yala.
The reason for the advisory stems from ongoing political tensions and demonstrations in the country, particularly in Bangkok.
Last week, a series of bombs exploded in the city during a meeting of Southeast Asian foreign ministers and diplomats from around the world, including the U.S. and China. Other fire-bombs exploded in a central shopping district in Bangkok and three additional bombs went off on Saturday at three ATM machines.
