A guarded facility, are most peoples houses guarded now, guarded by who?

 

Does it not mean you're told to stay home and you're left to be trusted?

 

But yes, i understand that holidaying may become terribly unpractical.

Isn't that why some hotels here have been rented by the government, to house returning Thai's?  Isn't the price 1000 baht a day?

 

Many other countries doing the same. 

 

Only cooks and cleaners allowed in, and some admin staff.  Other than that, it's locked down, and is guarded, to ensure no one in, and no one out.

What about all the other countries that make up the tourist demographic here?

I can't comment on them as i don't know.

 

Another note i forgot the mention, i don't think the returning Thais will be paying 1000 baht per day, no chance.

 

Where's your info on this from?

I stand corrected, it appears the Thai government is paying for returning Thai's, 1000 baht.  As reported in the below thread.

I can't see other countries letting people go on an overseas holiday, and then the tax payer picking up the bill for a 2 week stay in a hotel room.  I suspect the travelers will be billed accordingly.

Chinese will start o come in July and that will be the beginning of the tourism recovery.  Full recovery to the annual rate of 40 million a year probably will not come until a vaccine is available which is about a year way in my best estimate!

The easy money was getting harder to make, prior to the virus.  An amount of easy money will return, but I agree, the good old days are long gone. 

 

Who knows, we may see a return to the days where bar girls actually wanted to leave the bar and go to farangland and live a normal life.  🙂

No one can predict hordes of anyone coming to Thailand.

 

The Chinese may have that no travel mentality now as well as the rest of the world.

 

It isn't like there is a vaccine or cure out there.

 

I think people in general will be fearful of flying.

 

Look at the news of airlines all over the world downsizing?

 

Most people across the globe have taken a personal financial hit.

 

I think the going on holiday to Thailand mentality is not there and maybe not until well into next year.

 

People are not in the vacation mode, they are in the financial survival mode.

 

Who in the world would have ever thought Thai Air Asia would be thinking merger to survive?

Who in their right mind would plan a trip to Thailand in June, when they have no idea if self-quarantine will be imposed, no idea where they will be allowed to travel/stay in Thailand, and no idea of what will be open or closed?

 

I think the answer is very few, not even from China.
