The Serenity Destination Guide

Political Demonstrations in Bangkok

Edward Kennedy   |   November 27, 2013   |   News & Features   |   0 Comments

In light of the recent political protests in Bangkok, for those planning a visit to Phuket in the near future, we thought it might be a good idea to put your minds at ease.

Non-violent demonstrations are currently taking place in specific and confined parts of central Bangkok and do not extend to Phuket and most of the other provinces in Thailand. Phuket, and Thailand as a whole, is still a safe and welcoming place to visit and the demonstrations will not in any way prevent you from fully enjoying your well earned, relaxing stay at Serenity Resort & Residences.

If you have any concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our Reservations team at rsvn@serenityphuket.com or by phone at (+66) 76 371 900.
