Keeping an eye on Bangkok city

Keeping an eye on Bangkok city

In Bangkok, security has been increased to prevent any kind of violent activity.

Business travellers are advised to be alert at all times and check with their travel routes in order to avoid delays and inconvenience due to protest rallies. Business travellers travelling to and from the airport are requested to carry all travel documents.

Businesses including banks, petrol and gas stations, hotels, spas, restaurants, entertainment venues, cinemas, convention centres, shopping malls, superstores and convenient stores in Bangkok are in operation around the curfew hours. However, hospitals and airports, telephone and internet services are operating 24/7.

The BTS Skytrain and MRT Subway systems in Bangkok will operate till 23.00 hours, while the inter-provincial passenger bus services are operational as usual except for the curfew hours.

To ensure future safety of travellers TCEB coordinates with Ministry of Tourism and Sports to provide The Tourist’s Friend Centre (TFC) which remains open 24 hours a day to offer assistance for business travelers.


The Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) has issued the following directives for business travellers:

Passengers and airport officials travelling to/from Suvarnabhumi Airport during 24:01 to 04:00 hrs. may do so, as follow:

  3. Passengers leaving the airport using public taxis from the airport’s official taxi counters (paying a 50 baht fee) must show the taxi ticket at check- points.
  4. Suvarnabhumi Airport car park members must show their member card at check-points.
  5. Suvarnabhumi Airport has set up a Passenger Assistance Center, located near Entrance 7 of the Arrival Hall (2nd floor), to assist passengers with travelling enquiries during this situation. The Center is opened 24-hours. Tel: +662 132 9996-7, Fax: +662 132 9998
  6. Passengers, who cannot find a mean of transport out of Suvarnabhumi Airport during the situation, may use the facilities available at CIP Lounges 1-4, located on the 3rd floor of the Passenger Terminal
  7. Airport limousine and public taxi service are available as normal.
  8. Shuttle Bus service between Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang International Airport is operating as usual:
    From 04:00 to 24:00, leaving the airport every 30 minutes.
