Current situation in Bangkok, info for visitors

The protest sites that had crippled parts of downtown Bangkok for several weeks were dismantled over the weekend of March 1st and 2nd and now the only protest site can be found at Lumpini Park.  This means that the situation, at least in terms of from the perspective of visitors, has improved.  At this time most of Bangkok is safe and it is simply recommended that Lumpini Park be avoided.  Everywhere else should be fine!
