VISITOR INFORMATION
Measures being taken to ensure tourist safety in Thailand

Thai authorities have stepped up security nationwide to ensure the safety of all tourists and residents in Thailand, following explosions in public areas in some provinces on 11 and 12 August, 2016. The police presence has been increased nationwide and a raft of extra security measures put in place at airports, train stations and at major tourist attractions.

Police checkpoints have been set up in affected areas to search for suspects and all private and publically owned CCTV cameras are being checked. Thailand’s emergency services and hospitals are on standby in the unlikely event of any more incidents.

All related government agencies as well as the public sector are working in collaboration to enforce safety measures with the aim of preventing more attacks and to improve safety for both tourists and local residents.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) would like to reassure international travellers that Thailand remains a welcoming and secure destination and was visited safely by nearly 30 million people last year.

The majority of tourists enjoy a safe and trouble-free holiday here in the kingdom. Thailand has long been known for the friendliness and hospitality of the Thai people as in this case that the injured people were able to receive medical treatments within a short space of time.

TAT also would like to assure all tourists that locals and the police always do their utmost to ensure that in their country are safe and looked after at all times.

It is worth repeating that Thailand is a very hospitable country and has welcomed international visitors with open arms throughout its history. However, unfortunate incidents can take place here as they can anywhere. Thailand recognises the huge importance of tourism to the nation, and tourist safety is an on-going priority for us.

If tourists have any problems or want to report and suspicious behaviour they can contact the Tourist Police Hotline 1155, and be confident that the concerned authorities will exercise their utmost effort to provide assistance to all tourists.

Thank you information from TAT News
