Actually it's a positive step forward. Slowly opening up to selected countries and doing rapid covid tests upon arrival at the airport. My guess is in 2021 there will be lots more freeing up, allowing hassle-free entry to people from certain countries, who have been vaccinated and do a rapid covid test at the airport. It's the best we can hope for at the present time. 

Rightly so but the expats with investments, perhaps wife and children can't get back into the country.  But the wealthy can't get at their money as it's invested. But it's a worrying time and hope everything work out.

The shrimp buffet festival is on 20 October. 

Each will have his/her own Covid minder on a leash.  Each leash comes with a dog poop bag, so that when they need to take a dump on the sidewalk, it can be picked up.

There are no queues to cut, but you will hear them long before you can see them

The chief of Suvarnabhumi airport has revealed that more than 120 Chinese tourists on the special tourist visa (STV) will arrive at the airport on Tuesday, October 20th. 

I thought the first wave were going direct to phuket?

“Thai-visa further notes that the Vegetarian Festival runs until October 25th, after the scheduled arrival of the Chinese tourists at Suvarnabhumi next week. “

 

.....confirming the excuse for first cancellation was bs. 

Chinese (from Canton/Guangzhou) will be gone by then, I don't think they would stay longer than 5 days (Oct 20th in-Oct 25th out)

I recently flew from BKK to Phnom Penh. Phnom Penh are probably receiving several hundred passengers per day. So if Cambodia can manage it, why can't Thailand. Oh, and the streets of Phnom Penh aren't littered with the corpses of dead Covid victims either! 😂😂😂😂

less than a week ago, TV reported that not a single person in Guangzhou had applied for the STV, and now they've got 120 of the suckers? Unless Mr. P. gave Chairman Xi a phone call and asked him for a favour, it sounds like more of TAT's pipe dreams.

it's not over until the fat lady sings.... meaning until they are physically Here I wouldn't believe anything TAT says, first was Oct 8, then Oct 26 now Oct 20 and as you said, TAT previously indicated that NOT  1 Chinese had applied for the STV. I do think this post/news it's just to distract us from the other news about Thai people manifestations against government going on

Yesterday I read, that exactly "0" Chinese applied for the STV. And now they're coming? Seems as if all media have a serious truth-problem

And the govt has a problem telling the truth

It wouldn't surprise me if it wasn't being paid for by someone who likes the Chinese and needs a face to save fast .but that's a guess 🤔

Well, I was thinking along the same lines. Sounds more like some PR stunt than tourist arrivals but that could never happen in Thailand...could it?

The only $$$ that Thailand will see from these tourists is the $$$$ being paid to some official to allow the Chinese airlines, Chinese hotels, Chinese buses to operate

I wonder if the Chinese 120  names are known ?  (mmm....was  120  then 100  was  150 then  100  now 120 again)

I feel  if  the   tourist  agents in China  know nothing  how is this  working out  ...brown  envolopes?

Private   plane  only 120  the  cost  each  unbelievable   I  really think  this is  another  foo  foo 

However  I like the  lease and  doggie bags post.... 3 years ago I saw  a  tour  bus  stop  full of Chinese I was  amazed to see  5-6   just   get off bus  walk  to  side of road  and poop  in the gutter  as thougit was  perfectly  normal  men and woman .....Really  the  Thai  Gov

love the Chinese  they  spend so  much  baht  and  show  so much respect to Thailand  ...as  it is  often  joked at the  seafood  buffet they are total  rude  pigs  sorry  .....seen it  true 

As for selected  country  ...China  is on the bottom  of the list with every other country  on the planet (  Thailand  has not had the  virus yet as  such only  a  small  taste )

Good Luck  Thailand
