Taiwanese tour groups are still heading to Thailand despite the deadly explosion that
occurred near a religious shrine in Bangkok late Monday, Tourism Bureau official Chen Chiung-hua said Tuesday.
According to the bureau’s latest figures, there were 14 Taiwanese tour groups consisting of 275 individuals in Thailand as of Tuesday.
Chen said the blast did not appear to be having any immediate effect on tour groups leaving for Thailand, but the bureau will continue to monitor the number of tour groups and individuals leaving for the Southeast Asian country over the next week.
Tour groups from Kaohsiung will leave for Bangkok as planned, Shen Pen-li, a representative of the Kaohsiung Association Of Travel Agencies, said Tuesday. [FULL STORY]
