There is a reason for everything. In any case, apart of the curfew from 10pm – 5am, business is as per usual. One of my students even said that he felt safer with military present. How touching! ^^ Nevertheless, for those concerned travellers, you might want to wait and see how the situation unfolds. Then again, my opinion is it is still safe to travel to Thailand. Military will never start opening fire on people. If you have followed the news of the past few such occurences, you will get what I mean.
Be strong, Thailand!
