For two nights and three days I'm staying in Bangkok as the guest of the Grand Hyatt Erawan hotel. After the Erawan Shrine bombing, many tourists cancelled their holiday and it will probably take time for them to regain confidence. I'm here to remember the victims of the dead but also to show support for the local people. Ratchaprasong is probably the safest place to stay in Bangkok at the moment. Today I took the British and Canadian ambassadors and their families on a visit to Chacoengsao province.
