Tourism not affected by Bangkok bomb, says minister

There is no impact on the tourism sector from the bomb attack at Phramongkutklao Hospital in Bangkok’s Rajthevi district, which left some 20 people injured, as no foreign nationals were affected, Tourism and Sports Minister Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul said on Tuesday. 

No countries have issued any warning against travelling to Thailand while no special protocol has been sought as yet, she said.

However, Kobkarn said the Ministry of Tourism and Sports was uneasy about the incident and was monitoring the situation closely with instructions being prepared to communicate with tourists if necessary.

The ministry will continue to promote tourism in Thailand by highlighting foods, fruits, local culture, and sports to attract more tourists, she said.
