Koh Samui ready to offer a ‘bubble’ for foreign tourists


Recommended Posts

Its a good idea for the tourist industry, but it stops there. There is so many chances of getting sick traveling to and from. Some of the tourists would arrive or become active spreaders inside the bubble. There is a significant chance you would get sick needing weeks of extensive hospital treatment. This is Thailand, someone have to pay, and good luck finding an insurance company willing to touch the 10+ hour plane trip and stay inside the "bubble".

Samui desperately needs the help. Was recently there. More than 80% of the hotels were closed.    Thailand needs courageous leadership. They don't have it. The army are major cowards. ANY pe

They understand nothing about tourism, and their idiocy really has no limits!   Who wants to spend his holidays on Alcatraz? Only in a banana-republic-style police state like Thailand the au

At least the tourists are going to get some really nice tan lines ...

Just call up and have a scooter delivered. Bam and off you go.

Wristbands, CCTV, they really know how to excite prospective tourists!

 

Seriously, isn't it enough that foreign tourists have to quarantine for two weeks and undergo 2-3 tests? Shouldn't they then be considered "safe" and free to roam the country without silly surveillance measures?

Unfortunately the only tourists they are wanting are the Chinese ....!!

Not really on Samui, only 15 percent – but other Thai destinations have around 40 percent Chinese guests plus further Asian tourists, for example an additional 10 percent from India – Samui however has 10 percent Germans and 10 percent Brits as 2nd and 3rd in Top-3 (2018 stats), still a lot of Westerners here...😉

Any idea on the price of the quarantine packages on Samui vs those offered in Bangkok hotels?

Also, he said, tourists’ movements will be monitored by the more than 1,000 CCTV cameras installed around the island.

Why is it that Thais think that international tourists are interested in vacationing in a panopticon like prisoners in a penitentiary?

Well, who knows.  Perhaps if you live in a totalitarian country than a vacation like this would feel 'homey' and comfortable.
So Chinese and Australians should be beating down the door soon to book their Panopticon Vacation Package.

Thailand needs courageous leadership. They don't have it. The army are major cowards. ANY person from ANY nation should be welcome starting tomorrow, if they are willing to subject themselves to a 14 day quarantine and pay excessive fees for that two week sentence. There is no downside or risk, and only upside for the nation. No begging from a local consulate should be required. That is utter nonsense. A covid free letter and a booking at an approved hotel. Nothing else. No insurance. No groveling. 

Correct. They were pushing foreigners out before COVID. And now as all Thais with half a brain know. Are using this a excuse to keep white tourists out. This old folks home gov simply doesn't care about tourism. It's all a stage act. Thai people need a election and fast. They need to go.

ive seen the state of some of them already on the list so I don’t think these new ones will have anything to worry about! I’ve been in Prisons nicer than these!

They could always tunnel their way out.
Anyway - if a quarantine victim escapes he won't get caught if he changes his shirt - farang facial recognition is not a strong point.
