Hua Hin prepared for second wave, ready to accept foreign tourists

An upbeat meeting of 100 local health and government officials and business and tourism personnel at Hua Hin hospital heard how the province is ready for a second spike of the virus and ready to accept foreign tourists.

 

Though a caveat was put on the latter by business leaders in the tourism industry.

 

Dr Suriya Khuhara of the Prachuap Khiri Khan department of public health spoke of the history of the province dealing with the virus and the fact there had not been a case now for 170 days. 

 

He suggested that the province was ready for anything after the state and private sector had stocked up on medical equipment and polished their plans for the possibility of a second wave of infection. 

 

He outlined the plans announced by the cabinet for the Special Tourist Visa. He conceded there was some skepticism and fear among locals about allowing foreigners back in but he wanted to assure residents of  Hua Hin that everything was in hand and they could feel confident. 

 

However, in a throwaway line in the Manager report they stated that local tourism businesses felt that state quarantining should not take place in Hua Hin itself as Bangkok was better prepared for that.

 

Thaivisa notes that tourists who successfully obtain an STV need to quarantine at a state or local facility for 14 days before they are allowed to travel further afield in Thailand.

The reality is there will be no foreign tourists, nobody is going to risk coming to Thailand and getting stranded for months, you are just now dumping those that got stranded from the first lockdown which saw curfews and entertainment venues and bars being forced to close with bans on alcohol sales and beach closures, who exactly is going to pay to risk that ?, never mind the existing measures of quarantine and as much as Bt300k expense to actually get here, only those that are determined to get back to Thailand will come, those with families, homes, businesses etc and they are not actually "tourists"

Very few 'got stranded most chose to stay here and are still reluctant to leave Thailand.

All they decided was a deadbeat answer 14 day incarceration at your own huge expense 🤔

I just sent off an email to Thailand Longstay company to get some actual

numbers on the costs for going to Thailand in December. Eagerly awaiting a reply... But I suspect your estimate of THB 300K isn’t far off
