Places in Bangkok to avoid during this weekend (12-14 March 2010).

Below are the expected hot spots to be avoided from tomorrow (12th March 2010) throughout the weekend. Kindly avoid wearing either Red or Yellow throughout this period yeah. It would be better to stay at home, and if you're holidaying in Bangkok, shopping malls will be the best option instead of going to the markets on the streets.
