The Mook Lanta Eco Resort team want to express our sadness and grief over the tragedy that occurred in Bangkok last night. A bomb, the perpetrators unknown, went off in the central district of Bangkok, killing at least 19 people and injuring over a 100 more.
Currently no one is claiming responsibility for this act, which was a cowardly attack on the good citizens of Bangkok. Bangkok has never known a horror of this size.
We have been asked, by some guests how they can avoid being involved in anything such as this.
As an English person, I can tell you that these kinds of atrocities happen all over the world, but in reality they are few and far between, and you need to be very unlucky to be caught up in it. But there are things you can do:
1. Do not attend political rallies in foreign countries, tensions are always high at these events.
2. Watch the news, listen to advice and don't rubberneck (avoid visiting sites where this kind of incident has occurred).
3. Keep in touch with your family, they will worry (mine call me up every time there is a tsunami anywhere in the world). Make sure your friends and family know your plans.
4. Trust your instincts, if you feel unsafe or uncomfortable, trust your feelings and move.
Please remember, these incidents are truly rare and should not stop you enjoying life.
Our hearts are with Bangkok
