The Thai Embassy in France has recommended that Thais avoid visiting Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris and nearby areas after the cathedral suffered a massive fire on Monday evening Paris time.
In its Facebook page, the embassy also warned that travelling to Ile de la Cité, the island hosting the iconic historical 800-year-old cathedral, should also be avoided.
There are no early reports of Thais having been affected by the blaze at the Cathedral, whose central spire and much of the roof has collapsed.
The Embassy also provided emergency telephone numbers; +33646719694 and +33603599705.
