Bangkok will host the 35th Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit from Saturday, November 2, through Monday, November 4. The meetings will be held at the IMPACT Muang Thong Thani in Nonthaburi province, where thousands of people are expected to attend the events. Thailand’s government has declared Monday and Tuesday, November 5, as public holidays for Bangkok and Nonthaburi province to reduce traffic congestion and facilitate security for visiting ASEAN delegates.
Heightened security measures, including checkpoints, vehicle checks, and increased security personnel are to be expected throughout Bangkok during and following the summit. Associated disruptions, including road closures and increased traffic congestion, are also anticipated.
Individuals in or traveling to Bangkok are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate a heightened security presence and transportation disruptions near the summit venue, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
