Any opinions on unrest in Bangkok this weekend

Jump to last reply

We will arrive in BKK this Saturday - Jan 11 at midnight. We will fly to Sri Lanka at 11 PM on Sunday Jan 12. We are currently booked at the Sukothai - and had planned to relax, shop, have dinner - then head to the airport. Today's WSJ reports that the opposition is planning to try to rally thousands of protesters to close down 20 major intersections starting January 13. If they stick to that game plan I think we will be fine. However there is also a picture of thousands of people swarming a street. ( not sure where this is taking place)

My question/concern is this. I do not want to miss our flight to Sri Lanka. Does anyone have an opinion about the location of the Sukothai Hotel- and if we are risking not being able to get out of the area and to the airport? We can easily change to another hotel- or stay by the airport.

Thanks for any help or insight!
