Floods, quake don't deter Singapore tourists

Most still travelling to Bangkok and Bali despite the disasters

http://www.straitstimes.com/Breaking...ry_723633.html

Civil servant Nelson Heng almost cancelled his family holiday with his parents to Bangkok on Saturday because of flood warnings in the Thai capital.

But the 33-year-old finally decided against it because it was difficult for him and his father to go on leave for a holiday, and his friends living there reassured him that the situation was stable.

He added: 'We are taking precautions like buying travel insurance, packing rain coats and even instant noodles should we be trapped in the hotel by the flood and have no food.'

He is not alone in his decision.

I guess for some, traveling is more important than own safety

Delay travel to Bangkok, Singaporeans advised

http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stori...160306/1/.html

SINGAPORE: Travellers planning to head to Bangkok in the next few days have been advised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to consider waiting until the flood situation improves in Thailand.

Singaporeans travelling to or in Thailand are advised to eRegister with MFA at http://eregister.mfa.gov.sg.

Those who require consular assistance can contact the Singapore Embassy in Bangkok or the 24-hour MFA Duty Office at: +65-6379-8800 or +65-6379-8855 or email mfa_duty_officer@mfa.gov.sg.

For those who need to reach the Singapore Embassy in Bangkok, the contacts are: +66-(2)-286-2111 (main line) or +66-(81)-844-3580 (after office hours), and the email is singemb_bkk@sgmfa.gov.sg.

MFA advisory to Singaporeans in Bangkok

MFA advisory to Singaporeans in Bangkok

By Wayne Chan
Posted: 20 October 2011 2129 hrs


SINGAPORE: Singapore's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) has issued a statement asking Singaporeans in Bangkok to move to higher ground or areas unaffected by flooding.



This follows Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's command to open the city's floodgates so that water can be drained into the sea, after declaring the flood situation in Bangkok a "national crisis".

The MFA also advises Singaporeans to defer non-essential travel to Bangkok until the flood situation improves.

In its statement on Thursday, MFA said that given the severity of the situation, the Singapore Embassy in Bangkok has been advising Singaporeans there to take all necessary precautions and will provide them consular assistance.

It said Singaporeans who are in or travelling to Thailand, should eRegister with MFA at http://eregister.mfa.gov.sg.

This will allow MFA to keep them updated on latest developments and contact them should the need arise.

Singaporeans who require consular assistance can contact the Singapore Embassy in Bangkok or the MFA Duty Office (24-hours).

MFA Duty Office:
Tel: (65) 6379 8800 / (65) 6379 8855
Email: mfa_duty_officer@mfa.gov.sg

Singapore Embassy in Bangkok:

MFA withdraws Bangkok travel warning

MFA withdraws Bangkok travel warning
Posted: 23 November 2011 1927 hrs


SINGAPORE: Singapore's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) has said it no longer advises Singaporeans to consider deferring non-essential travel to Bangkok.

This is because the flood situation in Bangkok has improved.

The ministry said that Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has announced that inner Bangkok will be safe from floods as measures to stem the flooding have been successful.

It advised Singaporeans already in Bangkok and those planning to visit to avoid flood-affected areas to take necessary precautions including heeding instructions of the local authorities and to closely monitor the local news.

It added that concerns about the possibility of outbreaks of water-borne diseases such as leptospirosis remain.

Those travelling to Thailand who have not eRegistered with the ministry are advised to do so at its website.
