Bangkok tourism suffers due to unrest propelled by the Amnesty Bill

Published on : Thursday, November 7, 2013

Thailand Politics.JPEG-01f6bThe Bangkok parliament has been closed for visitation as the controversial Amnesty Bill has flared a large protest from teachers, students, business people and even judges.




According to live television footage, 40 groups of police each numbering 200 officers are to be ordered onto the streets of Bangkok amid growing agitation.

With the growing protest tourism in Bangkok is bound to suffer and some cancellation is expected to take place but most visitors to Phuket arrive on direct flights. No Thai holiday destinations outside Bangkok are expected to be affected.



There are chances that the police will use tear gas to control the unruly mob. In such a circumstance it will be difficult for tourists to visit Bangkok.
The Amnesty Bill, was passed on November 1 and is going through a great deal of argument. It will definitely take time to reach at a compatible decision. Until then unrest is likely to continue in Bangkok spoiling the scope of tourism in this highly sort after city.
