Put trips to Bangkok on hold: gov’t

The government asked Cambodians to avoid all nonessential travel to Bangkok following Thailand’s imposition of martial law.

“The situation is calm and we will continue monitoring it, but travellers planning to go to Thailand should hold off for now,” Information Minister Khieu Kanharith said after an ASEAN meeting in the capital.

“The important thing is that travellers avoid going to the places where clashes erupted,” he said. He added that Cambodian migrant workers in other areas of Thailand should continue working as usual.

Since martial law was instituted, Thailand has tightened security along the border with Cambodia, shutting down all “unofficial” corridor gates.

Ang Kim Eang, president of the Cambodian Association of Travel Agents, said tour operators have stopped promoting Bangkok and are advising all but necessary trips there be cancelled.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has yet to issue an official travel warning.
