Fear and confusion in Thailand’s tourism industry as near-bankrupt hotels decline foreign tourists

Recommended Posts

Several initiatives including the ‘Phuket Model’ and only last week, a 9-month long-stay visa for foreign tourists, have been announced but nothing is yet finalised. All are subject to not only stringent requirements but also limited flight capacity with a reliance on chartered flights. Thailand’s tourism industry will not rebound, even in a limited way, to anything like its former level of earnings without free market access and a sizable air passenger flight network. Studies in the UK are showing that the countries that are reopening successfully to tourism are relying on airport testing for the virus both before and after flights as the most reliable screening method.

That's the truth right there...

But T.A.T and the sports & tourism minister seem to have this rose tinted idea that all will be fine next month.

Let's get back on topic.  Why only 2 hotels in Krabi will accept foreigners?  Because the other  hotels worry they will hurt

their new growing thai busines?

Highly contagious pandemic = 80% of infected dead IMHO (not .065% dead).

This is a trivial illness that everyone will get, and hardly anyone would normally worry about.

Same as colds, flu, herpes, HPV ............... et al.

Not true, BritManToo.. .065%? where do you get that figure? 30 million+ cases worldwide. 1 million deaths. 3+%?. USA 5million+ cases. Approx. 200,000 deaths. 4%? Canada 90,000 cases. 9,000 deaths. 10%?

 

Death is not the only negative outcome from infection.. Many follow-on impacts on health for those not dying.

 

Over-counts? Under-counts? The Law of Large Numbers tells the tale,

There is only 3 in Phuket and 2 of them is the same company and from what I know, which is not much, the cost involved in converting the hotel to the standard they require is not worth it for the amount of business coming to Phuket,

This is the topic..

 

Why only 2 hotels willing to accept foreigners? Because their staff will not show up for work if they care for themselves and their families..
