Tourists are once again able to travel around protest-hit Bangkok, after demonstrators moved their camps from the city's major road intersections to a nearby park.
Protesters had blocked key streets in the Thai capital since mid-January as part of a city-wide shutdown in a bid to push out Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and eradicate the influence of her brother, ex-premier Thaksin Shinawatra, who was
ousted from power in 2006.
But on Friday, protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban told reporters that the groups of demonstrators would relocate their camps from the city's streets to Lumpini Park.
However, the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office is still warning tourists to be vigilant. Advice on the website states:
Political demonstrations continue in and around Bangkok and elsewhere in Thailand. Some of these have been violent, including the use of firearms and grenades, and there have been casualties and deaths. The situation is unpredictable and
further protests are expected. You should not enter protest sites or the adjacent pedestrian areas.
