Currently the political arena is very tense in Bangkok, as large groups of anti-govenment protesters remain in a stand-off with riot police. The Thai Army are now guarding government buildings. However, Army officials insist that there will not be a military coup.
It is advisable to avoid government buildings and surrounding areas, but most of Bangkok remains unaffected by the anti-government protests. For the vast majority of people living in Bangkok, daily life goes on as usual.
