BANGKOK UPDATE – There is a necessity to keep the Thailand updates coming, because a number of people remain unsure about the situation here in Bangkok. I am still being asked if Bangkok is peaceful and if it is safe to visit. Yes, I can confirm that life in the Thai capital has returned to normal. In fact, Bangkok is too quiet for such a huge, sprawling metropolis. But, the good news is that there are no armed soldiers on the streets, no imposed curfews, no anti-government protests and no violence. If you don’t like crowded and conjested places, this makes it an ideal time to visit Bangkok right now.
WEATHER WATCH – We have received some heavy rain in Bangkok, but as of yet there are no daily downpours. The rainfalls cooler temperature does bring some relief to the searing heat and high humidity, because it has been an exceptional hot season, even by Thai standards.
