Vietnamese ignore politics to get to Bangkok game

The number of Vietnamese booking tours to Thailand to attend the quarter-finals match between the national squad and the Iraqi team has been increasing, despite worries about political uncertainty in Thailand. Saigontourist told VietNamNet Bridge that more than 200 clients had booked tours to Thailand to watch the football match. They will arrive in Bangkok on the afternoon of 21 July and then go directly to San Rajamangala stadium in time for the game at 6.20 pm. They will return to Vietnam on the same night. The fee for the quick tour is offered at US$ 350/traveler. Many young people have organised cheaper trips by bus, car and train. One route is to take a bus to Phnom Penh, go through the Poipet/Aranyaprathet border gate, and then take a train to Bangkok.
