Thailand Prime Minister, Abhisit Vejjajiva, has made announcement to the public for the planning to dissolve Thais National Assembly and re-arrange the National Election between 14 to 30 November, 2010. His announcement has eased the political tense in Bangkok. At the moment, we still recommend that tourists should get accommodation avoiding the crowded protests on Silom and Sokumvit roads until further notice.
However, the protest does not affect our trip starts from Bangkok as we only transfer from the hotel in Bangkok to avoid the busy traffic and our Thais local cycling guide knows how to avoid the busy traffic to get to the point where we start our cycling. We normally stop at a gasoline station and set up our bikes and we can use the restroom also.
