Warning on Thailand Travel

Jump to last reply

I came across the following on the BBC web site (please note, I'm not saying you shouldn't go to Thailand, I just want travelers to be up-to-date with the latest warnings):

"Australia and several European countries are warning of the dangers of travelling to the resort island of Phuket in southern Thailand.


We know from the Bali experience you just can't be too cautious and we've had some information in relation to Phuket

Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer
The advisories follow the devastating bombing on the Indonesian island of Bali nearly two weeks ago which killed more than 190 people.

A spokesman for the foreign ministry in Denmark, which holds the presidency of the European Union, confirmed that a specific warning regarding Phuket was in place but would not detail what had sparked it.

'I can only say we have very good reasons for doing so," he told BBC News Online, adding: "It is not simply a reaction to the Bali bombing.'"
