The Fiscal Policy Office will hold a meeting with the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) on Thursday (June 4) on plans to boost the tourism sector.

 

The office’s director-general Lavron Sangsnit said the Finance Ministry is ready to consider TAT’s proposed measures, which he hopes will be launched next month, in time for the Songkran holidays. The Cabinet is expected to reinstate Songkran holidays in early July.

Thailand seems to have declined to take part in Britain's "air bridges" initiative. Highly sensible, I'd say, given the huge mess going on back there.

Oh boy!  I read another thread and start to think "Maybe the powers that be are starting to figure everything out....then I come to this thread and the talk is Songkran in July....WHAT!  

 

So a thousand years of history, the relevance to the movements of the sun and it's bearing on the Thai calendar don't mean zip!  

 

I know the old Siam is fading to be eventually swallowed by the newer Thailand....but really?  Are the brains trust that stupid???

Considering tourism help spread the disease, you would think they would focus on something else for a while.  The trouble is Thailand wan't an attractive place to set up shop, and that was before the virus.  Hope Thaksin makes a speech soon.   Would be interested in hearing what he has to say rather than a bunch a buffoons in green.  As bad as he was he was better for Thailand.

How about tours where travelers are transported on Quarantine buses

directly to sealed beach or mountain resorts. Up to 14 days combined with health and wellness programs, 

Massages under plastic sheets. Silent dining.  Selected sports you know, Taichi, singles badminton with marked shuttles.

Advanced "social distancing" practiced like some new form of mindfulness training?

Just to clarify, you ARE joking, right?? No one in their right mind would spend lots of money to go on vacation where they are imprisoned in a single city/island, despite any mental gymnastics and wishful thinking applied by great minds.

I'm surprised that you're surprised.

Yes Marie-Antoinette. Considering half the country is heading towards starvation, sure, why not let them eat cake, I mean, focus on something else. Tourism lifted a big chunk of the population from poverty, and lack of it is plunging them back in. Needed ASAP.
