Is there a ban on driving through Rayong province at the moment?


Recommended Posts

If Im driving from Bangkok and want to pass through Rayong province is there a ban on this with current restrictions that Im reading about?

 

Yesterday we successfully drove through the province from Bkk with absolutely no checks at all. But now we need another family member to drive tomorrow or by Thursday.

 

I think from today its all much stricter but want to know if its possible or not. If you or your family have any experience with this right now, success or failure, please let me know

 

thanks

No there is not, but you may well be stopped at the check points on major roads into the Province  and you need a good excuse to enter the Province. such as visiting sick or vulnerable relatives, pets clinic and hospitals for sick animals, hospital appointments etc .  Shopping or beaching won't do it.

Hmmm, am getting a little perturbed now as I’m on Koh Samed & plan to take the bus (or a taxi) back to Bangkok on Wednesday, so do I need to upgrade my “Status” to Nervous?


Joking aside, would appreciate any thoughts/suggestions (maybe I should have started a separate thread) mine are if push comes to shove we’ll just extend here... or Ban Phra/Bang Saray...
 

Am sure we’ll make it home eventually

I was just informed by a relative of my wife, who works in the provincial government, that as of tomorrow, the whole country is locking down. We had a trip planned to Korat and Chaiyaphum tomorrow, and we would have been stopped on the highway, and quarantined for 14 days, from what I was told. He said there will be a mandatory 14 day quarantine for all people entering any province. He has been instructed to do that with people entering his province. 

 

A rather strong move, but likely necessary, after yesterday's numbers were revealed. Had Prayuth and his team been on the ball, this would have happened in Samut Sakorn immediately, when the outbreak happened, and it would have likely been contained.

 

He and his utterly hapless and stunningly incompetent army have failed us once again, and he needs to admit the failure, apologize to the nation, and fall on his sword, metaphorically, by handing in his resignation, in utter humiliation. Same goes for Anutin, who has been in way over his head, this entire time. 

Ive  just been  told   by the neighbours  dog............🤣 but seriously I left  BKK  a  day early to get back to Pranburi incase they decide to stop interprovincial travel  in the next few  days.....no checks from BKK to Pranburi although signs  of checkpoints were there.cones in the road etc

I recall from another thread that @DrJack54 had been intending to return to Bangkok from Koh Samed today (Monday), provided that the taxi which he had booked for this purpose from Bangkok had succeeded in getting through to Ban Phe. Maybe he could let you know how he got on in the event?

Today I had Bangkok taxi come to Rayong, pick me up and back to bkk. Currently just past swampy. No cars on the roads at all.

 

No tolls help also.

 

Yes sorry @OJAS

The above my post was earlier today in similar thread in visas etc.

zero traffic etc. Ban Pai to BKK in 2 hours. A record.

However they have not had chance to even set up border checks. Might be another story later in the week. We were due to return to bkk the coming Friday. Glad we made a dash for it today.

Aside info....my partner just spoke to owners on Samed tonight and your allowed in Ocean 6am till 6pm. Restaurants open for eat in.

No alcohol (however ways around that).

Why is alcohol such an enemy in Thailand.
