Avoid non-essential travel to Bangkok: Dept of Foreign Affairs

OFFICIAL WARNING: Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada advises against non-essential travel to and within Bangkok due to ongoing large-scale political demonstrations, which have been marked by violence, death, and injury. A state of emergency remains in effect. The security situation is very volatile with significant potential for further civil unrest, violent clashes, and attacks. Canadians currently in Bangkok should avoid all non-essential movement, exercise extreme caution, follow the advice of local authorities, closely monitor local media, and, if violence erupts, remain indoors.
