Thai authorities assure safety for Malaysian travellers

NARATHIWAT, June 13 — Malaysians need not be unduly worried about their safety when travelling in Thailand as local authorities have tightened security measures following several bomb explosions.

Acknowledging Thailand as a preferred travel destination for Malaysians, Narathiwat Governor Trakul Thotham said Thai authorities have tightened security measures across five southern provinces, including Narathiwat, Yala, Pattani, Songkhla, and Hatyai.

Speaking to the media, Trakul said Thai authorities had implemented several roadblocks to assure the safety of international tourists.

“Malaysians however are advised to always take personal safety precautions and carry important documents when travelling to Thailand,” he said.

Thailand is known for its culinary delights, making it a popular destination for Malaysian food enthusiasts. The Sungai Golok-Rantau Panjang route, located at the Malaysian-Thai border, is busy, especially on weekends.

Extending a warm welcome to Malaysians to explore Thailand’s diverse tourist attractions, Trakul said those bringing their vehicles into Thailand should adhere to Thai traffic laws.
