Foreign tourists ready to return to Phuket: Consuls

Recommended Posts

I guess the Americans weren’t invited, because BoT had already planned to crush the USD, and thus, obviate the need for any invitation.

Really, foreign tourists want to spend their 2 week vacation in quarantine in Thailand.

 

I don't think so.

I didn't know that there were so many Mexicans in Phuket, enough to warrant the presence of a consul!

There's an Honorary Consul to Mexico on Phuket.

If Thailand is concerned about importing infectious cases, why even consider countries like e.g. UK, Sweden, Russia.

I reckon foreign tourists, i.e. the ones that spend money, e.g. Australia, British & European will not return til at least next Songkran/vaccination availability. I know the govt in Australia ( now only 490 active cases) are saying it will be 3-4 months before people can fly to 'safe' countries for a holiday. If flying to Asia, they suggest that on return to Australia you would have to self quarantine, with the police spot checking your where about's on the virus app. I cant see people spending money on flights etc for a two week holiday only to return for a two week lock up, meaning you would require four weeks leave for a two week holiday. That is why I say at least next Songkran, but, and this is the big but, I reckon the days of the gogo bar and the like will decline sharply and disappear? . Until next year all the Thai people employed in the bar/restaurant will need other employment and they will be competing with all the people who have been displaced by the farang tourist not being present. There has already been I rise in crime as people are desperate for money to survive. I personally know a couple of Thai guys who have made mistakes and ended up in Phuket jail.

Present were those from the following countries: Britain, France, Germany, Australia, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Estonia, Russia, South Korea, the Netherlands, Switzerland, South Korea, Austria, Chile and Luxembourg.

Did the representative of the (previously) biggest nationality of tourists decline to come, or were they not invited?

South Korea is duplicated )

 

That means they are twice as keen to go to Phuket as the other countries.

"when the coronavirus situation has subsided."

 

That says it all, the other point being leaving you country if allowed and getting back in without being quarantined.
