A survey conducted by the Bangkok Poll Center indicates that almost half of Thailands foreign tourists say the ongoing political stalemate in the kingdom has greatly affected their decisions to travel to Bangkok.

The Bangkok University opinion survey was conducted March 26-29 among 449 foreign holidaymakers while visiting Bangkok amid the anti-government Red Shirt United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship UDD protests.

Two in five interviewees — 41.4 per cent of those surveyed — said Thailands current political conflict has impacted their travel decisions, double the 19.3 per cent indicated in last year’s October 31-November 1 survey.
