The Government of Canada has issued a travel advisory for Thailand.
According to the government, Canadians are asked to “exercise a high degree of caution in Thailand due to ongoing political tensions and sporadic demonstrations in Bangkok and elsewhere in the country.”
There were six bomb attacks in Bangkok on Friday, August 2.

Besides Bangkok, the Canadian government is also warning to avoid all travel to and through the far southern provinces, due to criminally and politically motivated violent incidents: Narathiwat, Pattani, Songkhla (including the city of Hat Yai), and Yala.
