How do they get you - in splendid isolation - all the way from Bangkok to Chiang Rai to begin quarantine?

 

I don;t think that there are any international flights to here at present.

And why not list Chiang Mai, it has a good report card and many suitable hotels for quarantine. But like CR no inwards international flights.

 

But how come places like Buri Ram are listed? A puzzle.

He said it was time to welcome tourists from what he called RRC - related risk countries, those with similar situations to Thailand.

Maybe because areas listed are not popular holiday destinations for Western tourists? Who knows how they come up with these ideas?

“As reported by Bangkok Biz News earlier in the week he noted that ten provinces had scored full marks for their ability to offer quarantine facilities. “


 

It don’t really matter which resort you choose when you’re stuck in a room for 10 or  14 days does it.

Well closer to family might be important for many returnees; especially if it's possible to get a direct inter. flight to home city then quarantine in that city and after 10/14 days just local car ride to family.

And what about if you have a vaccine already?

Hopefully that will completely change the whole ballgame.

Airlines (e.g. QANTAS) are starting to talk about this. Probably means something like quoting your vaccination registration number when booking, and electronically verified at check-in and during your flight rechecked at the arrival destination. But the actual vaccination checking processes still in development, and most countries yet to announced new rules for those who have been vaccinated. Hopefully soon. And the reality is that returning to pre COVID 19 days is unlikely, there will be a 'new normal'.

Maybe they should come up with another super-catchy, irresistible sales promotion like:

 

“Now offering a new deluxe quarantine package for exclusive quality tourists… pay for 14 days but only stay for 10.”

 

Another excellent opportunity to make the evil foreigners pay more for less.

Ive got an idea that Buri Ram wants to host international events at Chang Circuit, notably MotoGP, although it has now been deferred to the 2nd half of next year anyway.

Since they've mentioned China and Vietnam - I'm pretty sure people from those countries ALSO need to quarantine back home under government care upon their return.

 

So I'll say it again, such a move will do almost nothing to increase the number of regular tourists that would be willing and able to holiday in Thailand.

A Thai doctor representing the health ministry once again suggested that Thailand should reduce quarantine to ten days from 14 to spur tourism.

A Thai doctor representing the health ministry... blah blah blah...
