Just let me go to Cambodia and return.

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

UK economy is in a lot better shape than Thailand even with 39,000 deaths with/from/suspected covid-19.

It started off better, that's an apples and oranges comparison.

I just spoke to a people I know. He says that government will consider a tourist visa case to case to European people. Take your yellow book with you take your pink card, take a land lease for 30 years, take your prove that you pay for a house. Then you have a chance to come in October, November this year and stay in your house. But nothing sure

So I can not leave LOS and go to Europe and/or the US and then return to LOS after 2 to 5 weeks (my frequent pattern) sooner than October at best, which is what I've been expecting.

Yes , I’m in the same boat .. that’s my pattern .. I can’t see Irish being allowed in any earlier that the UK .. we are always lumped into their circumstances and they are quite different . I’m hoping for November but......

Open the borders is not reality. He can say its open but the restrictions in place to get in essentially still has them closed.

 

No one will fly in for a holiday when they are not sure they will get in and then when they return home they will be quarantined.

Like i said, they had 1600 cases yesterday. That is a stark difference to your claim they had 10,000 - which is false. They have never had anywhere 10,000 infections a day, which is a gross exaggerated lie. 

 

As i said the UK has carried out nearly 5 million tests on the population, with them now ramping up to 200,000 a day. Antibody tests rolling out next week. Thailand meanwhile has only carried out 400,000 tests in total, and zero antibody tests. Both similar populations sizes.

 

The UK rate is also high because of the problems they have had in care homes for the elderly. 

 

That's why no one can really be sure how many people in Thailand actually had the disease. But it's fair to say it's has not succumbed to the pandemic like many European countries. Be it luck, climate, health of the population (namely weight issues), density of the cities they have done well. 

 

 

@AndrewMciverBoris and co admitted in their broadcasted press conference last Thursday that they believe the number of new daily infections to be around 8,000. This is the estimated number if the whole population was tested.

Wanna trade places?  I'm so over living in the US

What, with all the entertainment going on there at present? If you're bored, do a bit of looting, burn a few cars, get arrested, do a teary CNN interview. Hey, that'll keep you busy for a week at least.

You're in a boat? Are the ports open? Landing on a deserted beach? Don't forget to do your quarantine under an isolated coconut palm tree.

Two things out of reading this column so far.
 

1. If Songkran does go ahead as stated from 4th to 9th of July, do you think they will open up the Bars before that period? A good guess says no.

 

2. The biggest industry travel wise when this has finished will be working for Frommers, Lonely Planet and online travel sites. The amount of permanent closures in the first six months of this year, and travel changes will require a fair update to those publications and sites. Google maps already has so many outdated restaurants and bars for CM you can’t trust it for hunting down a new place to eat.

 

The only way to get the good gos will be from people on the ground. Sites like this will help a lot of people in the near future. Thanks to those that post helpful guides and information in a country that forever changes its policies.

There is no way to test accurately, even departure or arrival here.

I thought you would all know that,

The virus can incubate in the throat or high in the nasal canal for up to 18 hours before being able to

give a positive test.

Before even considering allowing International tourists back in

the country needs to open everything up (yes, including bars & suck it & see !!!
