Recommended Posts

Will this be referred to as the 2nd wave?

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 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. 

And two weeks of self isolating on arrival.

Does Khun Nappadol think the Chinese are all teetotallers?

They can buy as much booze as they like - they are special

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.

14 day quarantine on the way into Thailand and another 14 day quarantine when they return to China.

 

Maybe they can get a few days in Thailand between the quarantines.

 

These Chinese peasants are never coming back

So what countries will issue a ''clean from covid'' certificate/letter?

 

Can you imagine going to a doctor in the West and asking for a ''I am clean'' certificate?  Dream on!

I was scheduled to go back to LA late March. As I was trying to decide whether or not to go, I was told by a friend of mine who is a pulmonologist at Cedars Sinai, one of the top hospitals in Los Angeles County, that even if he did the test and came up with a negative result, he could not write the letter, due to the potential incubation period of the virus, which would be undetectable at present. I guess he was saying the test could come back negative, yet I still had the virus in my system? He said the liability would be tremendous for such a letter, and it would be impossible to get one in the US, from anyone. I would not have been able to return this month, as scheduled, and would have had to stay in the epicenter until all of this is over. Very good decision to stay here! 

 

So, that means all American are locked out of Thailand for the forseeable future. How many other nations have similar policies? Between that letter, the possible health insurance the authorities may require, and the potential threat of quarantine, who will be traveling to Thailand in 2020? I tend to think very few.

So if Thailand is expecting Chinese tourism to resume in July you can bet your sweet bippy you'll be seeing this American back to visit his wife. This lock down is ridicules sorry, and has it actually had any effect on this virus! How has the average person in Thailand coped during the shut downs? Im not talking about the rich thais who can ride it out! if you have money your set but if you dont have the cash in the bank you and your family are starving. Wheres that 5,000 baht?

Like I keep writing in America open the country now!

Still they not learn. Let them in again same they did with Chinese new year and the whole mess will start again. But of course ...like in January they were all clean . P.M. Pinokkio and his gang will just tell the same tale all over again. I never liked the Chinese and now I have reached the stage that the only good Chinese is .... yes sure many will know what I want to write but because of the Gutmenschen here  can not. I will have to return to Chiang Mai 1 more time to get the stuff i want back from my condo...and off to Sweden I will go. No more Thailand for me

 Sweden ...an island of normality ...in this completely crazed up world.  Was there just now.... compared to what the fools like Makron, Merkel and co do to the rest of the Europe it is "heaven".  And...no Chinese there. 

An honest question: How is it with your other foreign guests/ new countrymen?

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

Oh can't wait!! Keep your masks on! Diesel fumes from the well serviced buses will be coming again!!

Pollution and whatever else they bring with them?🤧

Are there many taxis in Chaing Mai, or is it these baht buses?
