The decision by Thailand’s military to impose martial law in the country yesterday has yet to result in Singaporeans cancelling their holidays to Bangkok. 

Instead, they are taking a wait-and-see attitude, travellers and travel agencies said. 

Dental surgery assistant Li Jiamin, is going ahead with her five-day trip to Bangkok next week. She had friends who went to Bangkok when protests were occurring there and were fine, said the 28-year-old.

“Bangkok always has this kind of problems. If anything bad happens, I’ll just stay in the hotel.”
