MFA withdraws travel warning on Bangkok as floodwaters recede

LAST WEEK: Cars submerged in flood waters at a Honda auto factory north of Bangkok on Saturday. -- PHOTO: AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE (BLOOMBERG) - The Singapore Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) has withdrawn its advice to Singaporeans to defer trips to Bangkok, as the threat of murky waters flooding the inner city recedes. 'MFA no longer advises Singaporeans to consider deferring non-essential travel to Bangkok,' the ministry said in a statement on Wednesday. It noted the remarks by the Thai Prime Minister who said that inner Bangkok would be safe from flooding, as measures to stem it have been successful. Nevertheless, MFA added, Singaporeans in Bangkok or who plan to visit the Thai capital are advised to avoid flood-affected areas.
