Is lockdown severe in Chiang Rai?


Recommended Posts

I am in Pattaya since some time. Lockdown is becoming gradually more severe. Also affecting relations with locals, they seem less used to meet farlang (maybe). How is Chiang Rai now? I always experienced CR as open and relaxed. Is there any "normal life" left during lockdown. Are there any people around cafes, night market, JetYod st., central plaza etc.

I don't go into town at night much but there's seems to be plenty of people around the malls and such during the day.

Cafes went down a bit last week but are picking up again.

Thanks guys. Sorry late reply. Pattaya is like a ghost town. My hotel is like "The Shining". OK, a little exaggerated but not by much.

Might be worth trying a flight to C.R. then. I always liked that place. I guess flights are no problem as long as you wear your mask.

Not AFAIK. I shop, swim, play golf, have massages.

This is the Ministry of Public Health website, one can find information which is 2-3 days behind.

I don't know what the rules are for someone flying into Chiang Rai airport from a red zone province.

You were right about domestic travel control. To leave Pattaya City by bus you must first have an exit permit from the police. I don't know what the requirements are. My trip to C.R. is still on but I may have to postpone slightly.

 

I wonder if anyone knows the precise rules. Sometimes it is  better not to ask too much. Maybe a taxi out of Pattaya to Don Meuang and see what happens there. You could lose an air ticket.

 

Does anyone know more about restrictions flying Bangkok - C.R.?

Here are the restrictions I could find.  This was as of January 11.

 

 "+A ban on any gatherings that would pose a risk of disease transmission.  

+ Entertainment businesses and venues can open only until 24.00 Hrs. daily.  

+ Interprovincial travel is discouraged.  

+ Arrivals from the highly controlled and controlled areas are required to register with the Chiang Rai Sawasdee and Thai Chana contact tracing applications and enter a 14-day self-quarantine or local quarantine as advised by the local public health office. "

I appreciate!

 

It seems a trip would be possible, but one should refrain from "extensive travel". If asked about the reason for the trip, "just need a change" is not a strong reply. I wonder what could be a good motive for travel? I don't want to mention the few people that still may remember me there.
