The Foreign Ministry downgraded its travel advisory for Thailand on Thursday night, after the Thai capital appeared calm in the wake of the military coup Tuesday.

“Although we have recommended against making any nonessential visits to Thailand, there is no need to refrain from traveling to Thailand, given that the situation in Bangkok on Thursday turned out to be calm,” the ministry said in an overseas safety advisory posted on its Web site. The announcement relaxes an earlier advisory issued Wednesday, warning people to avoid traveling to Thailand.
