Thailand Under Martial Law

Follow us on this page for the latest updates on the Thailand military coup.

As you may be aware, the Thai Military has declared martial law in the country at 3 am this morning, Bangkok time. The Royal Thai Army has taken this step, which it mentioned already last Thursday, to restore order after the lasting anti-government protests. The army is now in control of safety and the government is still responsible for leading the country. Both pro-government and anti-government supporters respect the action of the military.

Therefore, the tourism industry is able to operate normally. It might be possible that some roads, not in places near normal tourist sights, into Bangkok are blocked leading to traffic conditions in Bangkok being worse than usual this morning. The current developments might impact some Bangkok related tours operated by Khiri Travel. We therefore adjust times in itineraries to allow for extra travel time.

Khiri Travel gives priority to ensure guests and hosts are not affected by the martial law. We will update you if there are any developments that may impact Khiri Travel guests in-country and those who have made plans to travel here. For specific questions or concerns related to this matter, please get in touch with our Khiri Travel Thailand office via the below contact form.
