The blood pressure of tourist hotel owners and of other tourist attractions in tropical Thailand must be hitting new highs at this time as protesters continue to march in the streets demanding the ouster of Yingluck Shinawatra's government. Thai protesters are now marching again in bid to bring down Yingluck Shinawatra's government, reported Australia Network News on Jan. 6, 2014. There's a young Thai performer who is as attractive as Shinawatra who sings "Everyday is a Holiday in Pattaya" at an outside bar every evening in the internationally famous beach resort of Pattaya, Thailand, who is also probably sharing concerns that things aren't looking very much like a holiday in Thailand at this time.

Thousands of anti-government protesters have been marching through the Thai capital of Bangkok as a prelude to wider action later this month when they claim they will shut down the city in their bid to undermine a February election and unseat Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. The protesters have alleged Yingluck is the puppet of her self-exiled brother and former premier, Thaksin Shinawatra, who is overseas in self-imposed exile due to allegations of corruption. Protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban has said marches would be held on Tuesday and Thursday, and would lead up to the January 13 shutdown of the government.

There are deep concerns among many Thais that a military coup may be in the works in their country. It is not certain what the armed forces will do ahead of the People's Democratic Reform Committee's (PDRC) scheduled shutdown of Bangkok on Monday, with some observers believing a military coup is a real possibility. The Thai government shares concerns about a possible coup particularly due to the army's recent silence. It is even believed there may be a staged violent attack on the protesters to create a pretext for troops to intervene. This is a disturbing situation in Bangkok with the outcome uncertain at this time.
