Anyone want to bet that this is what will actually happen? Top dollar is likely to go with this plan going the way of those before it by the middle of next week, if not earlier. Maybe one day the

REUTERS FILE PHOTO for reference only   Thailand’s Cabinet on Tuesday formally approved plans to re-open the country to foreign tourists.   The planned gradual re-opening will see

They have a million plans, none of which ever come to fruition. Hard not to be a little negative.

So from July if i go to Phuket for say 10 days, can i then travel to other parts of the country?

 

 

I would think not without some test and/or quarantine .... but if you stay there until October 😉 , it could be possible yes...

"If the scheme in Phuket proves successful, quarantine will be scrapped in other popular tourist destinations throughout Thailand, namely Chiang Mai, Krabi, Pattaya, Phang Na and Koh Samui from 1 October."

Is this a highly diluted version of what might actually happen?

 

No quarantine at all in Phuket from 1st July for vaccinated travellers? Free to travel anywhere from day one? No Covid tests? No restriction on nationalities?

 

Let's wait and see.

im sure their are restrictions on nationalities.

Exactly. As I said, we're not being given the warts and all version.

It will probably include this list.

 

South Africa, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Botswana, Zambia, Kenya, Rwanda, Cameroon, Congo, Ghana and Tanzania.

 

The Ministry of Public Health says they’ll update the list every 2 weeks.

This a good question. My guess is the other sandboxes would need to have been vaccinated in preparation for their turn so flying to Chiang Mai or Pattaya etc would probably be OK but traveling to a village in issan may not.
