Is Thailand safe? Experts concerned after bombs rock tourist towns

Guthrie, S. and Briskey, M.ORCID: 0000-0002-3415-517X (2015) Is Thailand safe? Experts concerned after bombs rock tourist towns. The New Daily, 13 August, 2015 .


A terrorism expert has suggested Australians exercise extreme caution when travelling to Thailand in the wake of coordinated attacks in tourism hotspots in the country’s south.

Curtin University’s national and international relations expert Dr Mark Briskey said the attacks, which left four people dead and 34 injured, were “extremely unusual” despite that region’s history of unrest.

“People should consult the DFAT travel website and seriously reconsider their travel plans and exercise caution,” Dr Briskey told The New Daily.
