Its like welcoming your assassin to your own funeral how bizarre the baht can make you🤔 

What can one even say? Tourism is not returning to Thailand anytime soon. If you think about it, the group that comprised perhaps 60% of all arrivals (lower to middle income Chinese and Indians) are t

The Asian Flu from China 1958, the Hong Kong Flu in 1959, Avian Flu, Sars, Swine Flu, the Wuhan Coronavirus 2019, (Call it be its real name). Sure...why not Thailand ! How about a billion more Chinese who don't spend squat there, tear up the roads with heavy busses, degrade the infrastructure, and pick their noses....What kind of mental giants are running the tourism in Thailand.

you forgot about destroying the Buffets by taking 6 to 7 plates each and then loading up there bags with more to take away....

If you think about it, the group that comprised perhaps 60% of all arrivals (lower to middle income Chinese and Indians) are the ones who have been hardest hit by this idiotic worldwide economic shutdown. Tourism in Thailand will never recover to even close to it's former levels, and that leaves millions out of work. Most countries will still be required to have Covid letters, as the virus is still raging in many countries. And some countries will not issue that letter (impossible to get in the US). Plus, will the mandatory health insurance still be required? Will it be even stricter than before? And just what are people returning to, or coming to? Will everything be open? How about nightlife?

 

There are so many unanswered questions, it boggles the mind. One thing is for certain. Thailand will be feeling the effects of this for a very, very long time. So will the rest of the world. And rosy projections are just that. They are based on less than zero. 

Spidermike007,

Yes, I could not obtain the medical certificate required in March here in UK. Will the requirements for the wonderfull ? Chinese be more lenient.

China's numbers are actually in the sub-thousands.

 

Quite a feat when you consider eh?

Yes, they'll stay away from your 28sq m of it I'm sure.

 

Good news for Thailand, good news for China. Normality.

When you have to put up with every other vehicle being a tour bus chugging out black smoke or a tractor taking boats for Koh Larn with a decibel rate of about 150....you may understand why it would be nice if they don't return...January and February was actually quite busy without the Chinese, good atmosphere and feeling

I fear that you may be right about that. Whilst Thailand is celebrating that it is getting to the end of the virus the rest of the world is still in a mess. Thailand as always seems to be blinkered and thinks that we are all going to simply return to normal existence as soon as they declare all ok, ridiculous. Thailand needs to focus on the domestic economy as much as they can and say a prayer that one day tourism will recover to some extent. The news is good foe the locals who have been struggling so much, they can at least start fending for themselves again but relying on tourism to bring back the money is unbelievably stupid. stay safe everyone.

you guys keep remarking how the thai government will make special rules for the chinese.  maybe they will if they want to jump-start tourism, but they don't have to. 

 

the chinesers CAN get covid certificates.  our local small town hainan general hospital has testing with certificates available for the equivalent of 1000 baht.  and if the thai government insists on insurance with a special covid-19 rider, then winnie the xi-pooh-bah can just article 44 it into existence.

 

not a problem, hardly an inconvenience.

OMG, your name really stinks!!!  lol

 

Mr. Wuhan, yes, sure, the virus came from those farang countries, of course.  please, make yourself at home.

 

don't worry, we loved the inconvenience with your lab outbreak....errrr...i mean, don't worry, we will ban the farangs for you if they say anything bad about the great wall.

Just get one from a Thai doctor and ask them to leave the date blank.

Wish it were that easy. Must be from the country of origin. And impossible to get in the US. Hopefully, things will simmer down in the US and Europe sometime soon, and Thailand will not require it in the near future.

So what?

 

Politicians all over the world have waved their magic wands and said this lockdown is over.

 

Despite rising death rates in some locations. 🤡

and ?

 

Its not about the death rates. Thailand doesn't have a high death rates. The points is the world has other problems and doesn't care about Thailand. This article is about Thailand and not the some death rate.

 

The OP was about Chiang Mai that Chinese want to come again to Thailand. They will not come or maybe on 1 Dollar tours.

To anyone with a Brain it is. Imagine if You were a Chinese Tourist would you go wandering into anther Country and expect a welcome.

Why not ?

As far as I know China has rather well managed/contained the epidemic in the country, with the few new cases being now people coming back from abroad;

So probably less risky today to get Chinese tourists than tourists from Europe or USA...

and these tourists have nothing to do with the fact that this virus first appeared in China and the way China managed it.

Not 100% true.

Several example that I know for France an Italy were the virus arrived from local businessmen traveling abroad, China or other infected areas, or even from militaries.

Yes, the Western business men were in China on business, or in other cases, they had meetings in other countries with Chinese businessman, and the Chinese kindly gave them the virus to take back to Europe, so yeah, the virus was spread by Chinese to other spreaders.
