Despite the recent political demonstrations in both India and Thailand and the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, travellers are not being deterred from booking holidays there for the coming months.This is according to Barry Smith of Skyscanner, who said that searches for flights to Bangkokare normal for this time of year and that while there may be some effects on travel to these countries in the short-term, it should return to normal quickly.

“Thailand is massively popular with UK travellers and typically a very safe place to visit. As with India, travellers are unlikely to be deterred for long,” he pointed out.

Mr Smith advised holidaymakers to check advice from official organisations before travelling if they are at all uncertain, as well as getting in touch with the airline they have booked with.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office states that there is currently a temporary state of emergency at Bangkok airports and that all travellers should continue to follow developments as they occur.
