Sorry, I may sound repetitive but I could not find any recent article about the situation in south thailand. Booked a trip for beginning of April and started to hear from family and friends that there is some trouble in the South. Conflicts on the Malaysian border, people being enrolled to fight against extremist?? As per posts I read dated June 2007 People were saying it was miles away and that there was nothing to worry about. Just wondered about people experiences who live there or who went recently???
