Tourism sector will only start recovering next year, say experts

Recommended Posts

all these are guesses at this stage as no one can definitively say when the corona virus will be eradicated. tourism flow will depend largely on that and with no medication or vaccination in sight, it is purely guess work which is not going to help anybody.

I hope they allow those of us that live in Thailand and are held up in other countries to return to our homes very soon. 

Yep, many of us in the same position and I'm sure the same applies in other countries as well. It would be great of they actually gave some consideration to our predicament, but somehow I don't think we are on the radar at all. If I can get back in I think I will be inclined to stay in country with my wife until the pandemic has a vaccine or something. Seems like we have a few months at least before there is any chance of a return, though I would love to be mistaken.

Yes I expect they will but the shortage of flights and the expense may be prohibitive.. Can't see airlines putting on flights with empty planes.. Msybe look to come by sea.. Yep I know virtually impossible. All depends on how long you want to come and stay for. Cargo boats take passengers. Six weeks from Europe but if you are staying for a long time msybe worth it.. Short trips as in a few weeks are msybe a long long way off. 

Good luck

So it's goodbye Pattaya Beach, which will presumably remain closed and banned forever more, and tell all the tourists to go see the Chonburi Grand Canyon instead...

Businesses that have been severely affected by the Covid-19 outbreak, especially those that rely mainly on tourism in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC), are in dire need of support

Tell it to the boss, he's all for the EEC
