I recently visited Souteast Asia which included several days in Bangkok. We found it a bustling city and had no fears. We were unaware of what was happening politically although there were demonstrations already at the end of October. Obviously we were shielded from what was going on and did not find out about it until we got home to the United States. In hindsight I only noted one event that might have been related. We were in Bangkok two times. Once at the beginning of our tour (Oct. 21st) and then on the last day (Nov. 4th). And there was a difference. On the first visit we eagerly went to McDonalds both for the food and for the internet access. Two weeks later on our return McDonalds was closed. For renovation we were told. It did not seem to need this. Was the closure by the government to restrict internet availability?
