under control and order has been restored in Bangkok and other provinces,
the Ministry of Tourism and Sports said in a statement issued on Wednesday.
The statement said the ministry attaches high importance to the safety and security of international tourists.
"Major tourism destinations in provinces across the country are still pristine, peaceful and safe. Various measures have been implemented to return normalcy to the country and to assure foreign visitors that Thailand remains a quality and value for money destination," it said.
Free travel insurance for foreign tourists and the waiver of tourist visa fees had been extended to March 31 next year.
The government had also introduced insurance measures to protect foreigners visiting Thailand who suffer as a result of civil unrest or were prevented from leaving the country.
"Major tourist destinations, facilities and services are still regularly being accessed by both domestic and foreign tourists.
"Public utilities and mass transportation services are fully operative. Suvarnabhumi airport and other international airports remain in operation without any disruption," the statement said.
