The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) have issued a warning to Aussie travellers to steer clear of popular areas in Thailand including Yala, Pattani, Narathiwat and Songkhla.

“We advise against all travel here due to the very high risk,” DFAT said.

The news comes after two deadly bombs exploded yesterday near a hotel in Pattani, a southern coastal town. One Thai person was killed and 30 wounded, less than two weeks after more unexplained blasted the south.

On the DFAT website,  it also says to “exercise a high degree of caution” in Bangkok and Phuket due to threats of civil unrest and terrorist attacks.
