Study finds 82% of Thais “confident” in reopening tourism sector

Recommended Posts

Amongst Southeast Asian countries, Thailand has the strongest domestic appeal. 91% of Thais are keen to support local travel attractions in the next 12 months – a positive sign given Thailand’s recent investment of 22.4 billion baht (US$720 million) to stimulate its domestic tourism, of which partial financial aid will be provided to local tourists for selected hotels and restaurants throughout the country.

 

It proves if you pay a Thai to go on holiday he will I suppose 🤔

BS. It's well written and contains the core point of getting tourism back on track: Thailand is [manageably] corvid free, now number one since NZ got a setback last week. And since Thailand is a popular tourism mecca (unlike Fiji, another corvid free destination), it promises to be a destination of choice for the world's pent up retirees, with unaffected incomes, waiting with baited breath to once again travel. The only thing needed is to preclude 14 day quarantines upon arrival -- a definite show stopper. Thus, once we get a an effective, near instantaneous test that can be administered prior to entering the jetway, well, why can't we be positive about Thailand's tourism future....?

Don’t you think that being Covid-free goes hand in hand with keeping the borders firmly closed?

Anyone of us could achieve the poll results we wanted by polling in select area’s of the country and asking targeted questions.

 

Ask 100 vendors on Khao Sarn, Samui or Phuket and the majority will want a return to Tourism. 

Ask 100 office staff in Bangkok and their response will likely be quite different. 

 

Any poll such as this is pointless unless it sources from hundreds of thousands across the nations complete demographic. 

 

 

All of that said: Thailand has to reopen to international Tourism as soon as possible, the continued negative impact is too crippling, particularly for a virus which may have swept through the nation in December without significant media attention until Europe started panicking.
