As you will have read in the recent news
, Thailand has been through a spate of explosions in public areas across several provinces on the 11th and 12th August. To combat these issues, Thai authorities have stepped up national security to ensure the safety and protection of visitors to the nation, which is great news for all concerned. The Pattaya Condo market remains robust and welcomes more police presence to protect holidaymakers and locals.
Police presence has been increased across major tourism areas and also across the nation’s airports and train stations. Police checkpoints have been set up in the affected areas with all CCTV cameras in these areas being checked on a regular basis to pinpoint any strange behavior. The hospital services and emergency teams in Thailand are on alert in the unlikely event that more incidents will take place.
All groups across Thailand’s public sector are currently collaborating to ensure that all safety measures are followed to improve safety and to ensure all Thailand residents and holidaymakers can go about their daily business without any worries.
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) have also issued a statement that is geared towards reassuring all travelers that the nation remains a safe and welcoming holiday destination.
Thailand is famous for its warm and inviting atmosphere and is a very safe place for tourists, but the new safety precautions are simply there to ensure you have a great uninterrupted time while you are here to enjoy that extra-special Thai hospitality. TAT also stated that the police are also doing their utmost to protect tourists visiting the country.
It is also the right time to say that although it might seem troubling to visit Thailand at this time, that is really not true. Unfortunate incidents happen all over the world, especially in modern times, but with the moves to enforce tighter security, this is the best time to holiday in Thailand
The Tourist Police have set-up a hotline for those who want to report strange behavior. If you see something suspicious, you can call the Tourist Police Hotline on 1155, which will take your worries seriously.
