How predictable. The Coronacrisis is a very convenient thing for the generals, and they use it appreciatively as a welcome political tool to protect their troughs. So obvious.

Thank you Khun Prayut Chan O Cha and the government, obviously it gives them more management capabilities that assist with keeping COVID19 out of Thailand while allowing folks to go about their daily

Really, I thought Thailand was and has been COVID free for a while. This would suggest that we are being told a pack of lies. Or is there another reason?

I'm a hotel owner in Laos. 90% of tourist arrivals into Laos come via Thailand (mainly Suvarnaphoum) as its transit hub, so this decision is a further blow to the 1,000s of hotels, guesthouses, restaurants and all their employees that have lost their jobs since March. In all honesty, I believe Laos will turn its back to TH and start looking towards Viet Nam as a transit hub. Its important to know that decisions made by TH also severely and directly affect all regional neighbours. Fingers crossed.

Thailand couldn't   give a toss about anyone apart for bending over for their masters. China

Yes indeed and you have my sympathy. I live in Cambodia but I am familiar with Luang Prabang in your country and it must be devastating for everyone connected with tourism. Once borders re-open, your comment about Vietnam being a transit hub is well founded. I am sure Cambodia will no longer have to rely on Bangkok (BKK and DMK) as a "the" hub. Vietnam Airlines and Vietjet will provide excellent connections to Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville from International flights arriving at Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi in particular. Many travelers take this route or via other hubs in Japan, China, South Korea and the Middle East for example. The recent upgrade and modernization to Phnom Penh International airport will allow more direct International flights. A new larger International airport (with two runways) is currently under construction for Siem Reap so that more flights can be handled. It is due to open in 2023 and will be Cambodia's largest International airport. It is expected to handle 7 million passengers annually.  I wish you good luck in Laos.

Extend the state of Emergency to curb the Covid 19, and in a different thread open Thailand up to Tourism????

 

..... for their trough of money.

Why? Remember the selected hotels and the 2- to 3-fold higher prices!

How has the state of emergency affected you? How has it affected just about anyone?

IMHO, by doing this the good general is "Micro Managing" the country, may as well get rid of the provincial governors! Also helps with the unrest seeing as though he had to rescind his "Political Emergency Decree" a few days ago = Embarrassed?

Needed more than 5 to line the streets for a motorcade.

Yes the reason most obvious,same as many other countries waiting for a working vaccine to be discovered,in the meantime everything with opening the country’s up just gets put back until that time happens just be patient for many months to come

Most people's wrong-diet and inactivity habit, leading to obesity (leading to a weakened immune system and life-style diseases), was in itself bad enough prior to 2020. Now with this virus and politicians' group-insane reaction for everyone to see (you don't need a 'tinfoil hat' to look through the whole thing), our life has been taken to a whole new level. 

 

How much longer will we take it? Change starts with ourselves.

What are the state of emergency rules please, anyone?

Quite simple. 

1- Wear mask in public places.
2- Wash your hands more often.
3 - Social distancing.
4- If you have any Covid symptoms, trouble breathing , coughing etc, then please seek medical advice right away.

Sounds pretty much like the simple Covid-19 prevention requirements of about 193 other nations that DO NOT need a SoE to enforce compliance.

I agree and sympathise, but don't forget, Laos borders are still closed, to all but a select few, even laos visa holders cannot get back in, and certainly not tourists via thailand at this present time.

I am still hoping that Asean neighbours, maybe with the exception of Burma, can come up with some sort of reciprocal arrangement.
