Bangkok: U.K. Gives the O.K. for Travelers
According to a report from the Travel Trade Gazette, the U.K.'s Foreign and Commonwealth Office is no longer advising Brits to avoid Bangkok, but a State of Emergency -- declared Monday by Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva -- is still in place. Members of the Red Shirt Movement seem to have packed up and gone home after nearly shutting down the city for three weeks as the result of their political protests.

Officials in Australia and Ireland also issued warnings to travelers, urging them to stay away from the area or, at the very least, to stay indoors. Although we were unable to find an official warning or advisory from the U.S. Department of State, the American Embassy in Bangkok did urge U.S. visitors to register their travel plans.

We'll keep you posted.
