Vice Admiral Choengchai Chomchoengphaet, Commander of the Third Naval Area Command and head of the Thai Maritime Enforcement Command Centre, was present at Ao Por Pier and confirmed that foreign yachts are now permitted to enter the country, with yesterday the first day.


“All officials must follow the preventive measure orders of the Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha,” commented Vice Admiral Choengchai.

Phuket tourist industry is saved, 3 yachts have docked everyone is rejoicing, kerching.🤑🤑🤑🤑

THREE yachts!   Wow, that will boost TAT's numbers by at least 20 to 30K for the month.  Cant wait for their new year to year figures and then their 5 year predictions and then wow, their comparisons of this 5 year period compared to the last.....oh so exciting.  (why dont they just go get a hair cut and a real job <deleted>!)

When the arrival of 3 yachts is considered newsworthy one needs to say no more about the state of the Thai tourist industry.

To lazy to click. 


 "No crew will be permitted to make land on Phuket until the 14 day isolation period has been served and all officials have correct records in place" 


, these guys deserve a bloody medal having to stay on a hot sweaty boat for that long. 

Sure it's just news, only an idiot would expect them to have any impact though

A yacht will have aircon.   Im sure they can order fuel and supplies.   

Being 6km out should be quite breezy at the moment we are still getting rain down here, not too hot
