We are ensuring the safety of visitors by stepping up security nationwide and want everyone to know that it’s business as normal in Thailand. The strong spirit of the Thai people won’t allow these attacks to stop them living their lives and enjoying the sanuk for which the nation is famous.”All planned tourist and business events and festivals are still going ahead and the message is that Thailand is very much open to business.
