I think the locals just told Mr Pipat and his TAT where to go

Think again before using Phuket as an experiment

 

As for Pattaya, recently there are "NEW' tourists wondering around the city from S'Korea, how did they get in ?. very easy to spot with their selfie sticks, they stand out like big red nose, who facilitated their arival ?

 

some think I am incorrect, I can assure them I am not

the ministry should focus on Thai tourists, which would not create any risk of a Covid-19 outbreak in the province.

"To prepare for a second wave"....when was the first wave? It wasn't even a ripple! Phuket and Thailand in general is committing an economic suicide by refusing to accept that the virus is here to stay and to learn to live with it. The morons are following the idiotic Victoria model instead of pragmatic European one, which has proven to work. Most European countries have several hundreds cases a day....so what? Economy open, borders open, tourism open, people living normally. Thailand one case = total panic! Why?

Not actually true about Europe, cases are rising rapidly with the bigger Countries having around 2,000 a day and going up, borders may be open but returnees from other Countries have to quarantine for 2 weeks resulting in few bookings with people now doing staycations. All because lockdown was stopped.

So the Government have been scaring folk over C19, pushing out how farangs are dirty etc etc, and they are surprised that these same folk don't want tourism to start anytime soon. Says a lot when folk are willing to extend their hardships (economic) rather than get back to some kind of normality.

Not much point in inviting International tourists if the banks will not change their money!

11,600 flights flying in Europe today at 13:00 European time. (source>>>> https://www.flightradar24.com/45.92,10.78/4) (Currently 12,400 as I type this).
Please tell me what is the problem with Thailand.. 
The world is returning to normal and governments are having to open to save their economies and balance Covid19. It is effective and it is working. Even small countries like Slovakia that are experiencing over 100 cases a day are open. People are traveling freely between borders and are asked questions (as I was last week on my way by train to Vienna). 'Where have you been for the last 10 days?' etc... 
Thailand is doomed and is going to ruin itself.. I have said this since July, and I will stand by this statement until it is official in international financial press that they have collapsed their own economy due to being xenophobic and scared.

My goodness. Good that they don't ask such stupid questions here in Thailand... Where have I been the last 10 days? At many places but I didn't document them. And now jail or what? Thank you Thailand to protect me from such nonsense. They are doomed.
