Thailand in the Time of Coup: Is Bangkok Safe?
When in Manila, it is normal to daydream of a vacation that will provide you with a quick escape from the daily routine that you call “work”. Admit it or not, the occasional nagging of your boss and being an inch close to beating a deadline, amongst other things, will surely make you want to just book a ticket and fly to a destination where you can momentarily forget how chaotic office life can be.
If you are thinking of a place for your next vacation, why not consider flying to Bangkok? Bangkok? Yes, Bangkok! Perhaps, you are now contemplating on why I would suggest such a place considering that the coup is currently ongoing. Well, I have news for you! In spite of the political situation, the city remains safe! In fact, this might just be the best time to travel to Thailand!!! Now that is lot of exclamation points I made. I just want to emphasize my point, which is, I repeat: that Bangkok is a safe place.
