Invited for a freebie ?  and don't leave a negative review or there could be legal action 😋

What a total waste of both time and money

All they will see in Patong is closed and near derelict shops, dirty and crumbling footpaths and roads, and a town reeking with "the stench of death".

Nothing is suppose to return to normal ever again.  Academics, billionaires, NGOs, and think-tanks have been blasting out that message since March.  "There will be no return to "normal", so get ready to embrace the New Normal" is the message.

I agree, things will be different, however am optimistic as more and more people wake up to the fact that we have all been conned, including some governments, that borders will open up again and things will return to whatever the new normal will be, that said, those mentioned in your post will have to try somethings else as this plannedemic would have failed, not totally, but to a degree, they will still have made money out of it.

Phuket and all other tourist venues will completely understand exactly what "New Normal" means by this time next year.  They don't have a clue at the current moment.  They think "normal" will return by 2021 as there are cheerleaders within the halls of power telling them just that.  However, New Normal will be empty beaches, shuttered businesses, and booming business at upscale, exclusive resorts, boutiques, and Michilin-awarded restaurants.  
Commoner tourist can go elsewhere; commoner Thais can build brick walls, plant rice, and eat rice stubble next to their ox and buffalo. 


 

Great that someone is so positive about the future....:sad:

What't the point showing off merchandise when no one can buy and the sellers themselves are not sure they want to sell or not, and if yes, it comes with conditions attached, well at least they had a nice day outing in Phuket and a free lunch...

This Mr./Ms./Mrs. Ambassador is an ASQ Hotel, please step into the room and sample the atmosphere.  Look through the windows and see what those folks coming to Thailand will see during there stay.  Sorry!, but no I do not understand why you would think the accommodations are like a prison.  What?, you mean people do not stay in rooms for 14 days while on vacation!, well I think your wrong Sir/Madam.  What? No they will be free to roam around after the 14 days, but will have a Covid minder following them around, sort of like a guided tour.  Why? Well we do not want them to mix with the Thai people as they could still be dirty foreigners.

The Phuket Tourist Association has invited ambassadors and consulate officials from 28 countries to visit the island for three days in November. 

Just trying to do the maths.

 

How can you do 14 days quarantine in 3 days

1 rule for us and another rule for them.

Be happy that someone is telling the truth for a change.

 

Before all the tourists can even apply for a visa international flights have to be restarted and many airlines are on the edge of bankruptcy, Thai is one of them.

 

There will be few, if any cheap flights. 

 

That is before they get into business of visas, ASQ for 14 days at the customers expense but NOT the customers choice, Not forgetting the phone app for track and trace, the 24/7 wrist band, the $100,000 insurance.

 

Also don't forget that many people in the west may have lost their jobs, been furloughed, cant afford to take the time off for a holiday at the risk of looding their jobs.

 

TAT need to stop smoking happy cigarettes, pull their head from the clouds and face reality.

 

The old normal of cheap flights etc and hundreds of thousands from the West has gone forever, certainly for the foreseeable future.

They are already here in Thailand at there Embassies and consulate.  So the local folks can tell the people back home how good and Charming it is.  Charmed by Anutin and his tourism friends.

Well there you go.  Local ambassadors and consulate officials have incredible influence over pandemic tourism initiatives .....or........something.

Apart from the government making it almost impossible to get into Thailand without a ton of paperwork and 14 days quarrantine. THERE ARE NO PLANES !!!  Do they actually know that ?
