As you probably have heard, a military coup in Thailand has seized power from Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra. We are not going to pretend to have a solid grasp on Thai politics, so we will direct you to the thousands of stories about this over at Google News for the latest.
We all know that Thailand is a popular tourist destination for people living in Shanghai, especially during the upcoming October holiday — in fact, we are (were?) supposed to get married there next Saturday. Western nations are warning against travel to Thailand. This is what the U.S. Embassy there said:
“At this point, we are not advising Americans to leave Thailand; however, Americans planning to travel to Thailand may wish to carefully consider their options before traveling until the situation becomes clearer.”
We are hoping the situation becomes clearer very, very soon — somehow we don’t think a wedding at Dino Beach Park will compare to Koh Samui.
