Small Explosions in Several Thai Cities

August 12, 2016 by Khiri Travel |

Dear Valued Partners,

A series of small bomb blasts hit Southern Thailand last night and this morning. Two additional incidents were reported in the tourist destinations of Hua Hin and Patong. Other incidents were reported in Surat Thani town and Takua Pa, neither of which are typically frequented by tourists.

Khiri Travel is contacting all clients in affected areas individually with the advice to remain at their accommodations. Khiri Travel’s offices in Hua Hin and Phuket are supporting our Bangkok office with this effort. All Khiri Travel guests are safe at the time of this writing and we will continue to monitor the situation.

We will publish updates via Khiri Travel Thailand’s Twitter account (@KhiriThailand)
