I think I'm getting the most exercise in my life at the moment.

12 laps of the Moobaan on my bicycle every morning and evening (= 20Km/day) since CoVID.

 

But I still want to drink, smoke, take drugs and chase women of uncertain moral virtue every day.

It’s not a bad combination to be fair.

Sounds like they are thinking smartly and trying to do the right thing here.

I would say for the government there is no difference - either you have permanent residency / work permit - so they basically need you, or you are a "tourist".

 

I am out of Thailand too, stuck as many of you. But still I have to smile about all the discussions I read in the forum in the last few months that Elite, marriage, retirement etc. etc. visa is so much better. We can see know that people with a long-term visa have no rights - they are treated the same way as tourists.

Bingo.

 

Some people now getting a wake up call as to their actual status in Thailand.

Thailand and Cambodia, that would make a nice bubble - both haven't had local virus transmission lately.

 

Cambodians, Laos and Myanmar are very poor people. They come to Thailand to earn a living (take away money) and not to become tourists.

 

I doubt a travel bubble between these countries would help the economy in Thailand.

 

Vietnam is richer than these other 3 countries but Vietnam is also competing for tourists.

 

A travel bubble with Vietnam, Thailand and China would certainly boost trade.

Agreed. Not trying to minimize the severity of Covid-19 but media and social media have struck fear in the hearts of many and caused many to over react. Previous pandemics were far worse. Hong Kong flu of 1968 caused more than 1 million deaths. The Asian flu of 1956 to 1958 caused more than 2 million deaths. Then there was the swine flu and SARS. With the Asian Flu and Hong Kong flu there wasn't mass fear created and sustained by media and governments. Point of interest is where these recent pandemics originated.

 

Yes because there were no lockdowns in 1968. Assume for a minute that no country imposed a lockdown for Covid. We could be on a million or more deaths already. Swine Flu and SARS were contained relatively quickly so the damage was limited Unfortunately China held back far too long before telling the world of Covid.

I am in Thailand, I want to go to Philippines but they are not going to open up any soon.

They keep having a lot of new cases even with a very strict lockdown and draconian measures.

Not if your dollar is American according to that list.

 

Tar pounding might have to wait.

Didn't Vietnam stop issuing long term visas unless you're married to a vietnamese woman?

Why dont we all just cower in fear and do nothing the rest of our miserable lives. Dont drive, walk, have sex, absolutely nothing because something could happen. this is pathetic

So many people are willing to give up their freedom over a false sense of security.

What a pathetic life.

When a border from Vietnam to Thailand will get open I guess many tourist will go there. Amnesty more like will get suspended by them. Anyway people can stay in vietnam and enjoy.

Look yourself guys seven communistic government can be more generous and fare. Maybe not to their own people but foreigners.
