A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions are to be expected in the vicinity of any protest site. 

Context

Recent anti-government protests have passed off peacefully. On July 25, hundreds gathered at the Democracy Monument in Bangkok, and hundreds rallied in Pathum Thani province on July 23.

Public opposition has grown against Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha's government in recent months, with grievances over government spending, the dissolution of an opposition party, and many other factors. Numerous protests have been held across Thailand in recent weeks, with the largest so far on Saturday, July 18, when around 2500 gathered in Bangkok to demand the government dissolve parliament and step down.

Advice

Individuals in Thailand are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
