Tourism in South unaffected by protests

Federation of Thai Industries says blockades of the southern highways and roads by rubber farmers have not yet affected tourism.

FTI vice president Ithirit Kinglek said that  the scattered protests affected only some routes while hotels reported no cancellation or postponement of room bookings in Krabi and Phuket provinces.

However if protesters move to block airports, then it will have immediate impact on tourism, he said.
