Government raises red travel alert for Thailand

Now is not the best time to be travelling to Thailand.

In view of the flooding situation in Thailand, the Government has raised the outbound travel alert for Thailand's flood-hit areas including Bangkok to red.

Travellers should consider adjusting their travel plans and avoid non-essential travel to areas seriously affected by flooding.

Those who are already there should pay attention to local announcements on the flooding situation and attend to their personal safety.

Thai authorities say 28 provinces have been affected by flooding and local authorities have declared October 27 to 31 special holidays in Bangkok. Hong Kong residents should monitor the developments.

At present, Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi International Airport is operating normally and airline services from Bangkok to Hong Kong remain normal.
