Industry: Travel

Despite the standing Travel Alert from the US Department of State, which is currently advising against non-essential travel to Bangkok, cheap airfare search engine, Skyscanner.com can report that tourists have not been dissuaded from flying to the Thai capital for their summer holidays. Skyscanner’s data revealed this week that there has been no reduction in US and Canadian-based searches for flights to Bangkok for travel in
June, July and August 2010.

Scot Carlson, Skyscanner Country Manager for the USA and Canada, commented: “We have not seen any significant drop in interest for summer travel to Thailand since the Bangkok protests began although I suspect that this may be because many travelers believe the unrest will be over by summer. However, I haven’t seen this ban take much precedence in the news in North America so some travelers may simply be unaware of the unrest.

“Whatever the reason, flight search volumes to Bangkok have remained consistent with other popular, East-Asian searches such as flights to Hong Kong, for example.”

Mephedrone, a synthetic stimulant also known as Meow, Bubbles and MCAT, has been banned in the UK and a representative from Quoteboffin.co.uk has welcomed the news, claiming it will benefit the NHS and healthcare providers across the country.

The representative explained that the laboratory-produced drug had the potential to prove a huge drain on the UK’s health resources, and that Quoteboffin thereby supported the recent ban.

While research into the drug – which is derived from cathinone, a compound found in a plant called Khat – is incomplete, the Advisory Council for the Misuse of Drugs announced it a harmful substance and recommended the ban.

Producing a feeling similar to those experienced by people taking drugs of the amphetamine family, mephedrone has been likened to cocaine and ecstasy. The sensations it produces can include an increased heart rate, anxiety and a sense of euphoria. Associated effects include nausea, palpitations and vomiting, reports the BBC.
