The chief of the Tourism Authority of Thailand - much criticised for coming up with pie-in-the-sky predictions for tourism in Thailand - is now adopting a more cautious approach.

Nice to read that he finally understand that the numbers are so irrelevant and small so they are no longer worth mentioning. However, it seems like it was enough for a satang to finally fall down.

Instead he said that he would reserve judgment and wait to see what measures the government put in place to build on the September 1st easing.

 

😂

it must be a typo as their predictions were oriented towards OCTOBER 1st

This he said had already seen a resurgence in some places of domestic tourism with Bangkokians in particular travelling 200-300 kilometers from home.

Domestic tourism will certainly help national Thai businesses but of no use to farang business owners in the tourist areas.

Even before this years extended lockdown, they were barely covering their overheads.

Now it seems TAT don't even think that BKK will be opening anytime soon for unencumbered foreign tourists to arrive.

It will only be 10 sqillion baht spent this weekend?

The tourists started to come here again last weekend. The crazy thing is they can come and go, from a dark red zone, but a local returning from UK has to do 14 day home quarantine.

You are biased 😝  and your statement is not correct nor complete ....this applies to anyone entering the country whether they are fully vaccinated or not (yes sandbox is still a  quarantine) and...definitely + unfortunately not a  "home" quarantine but an expensive and restrictive "hotel" stay

That last big meth bust must have dented their supply at the TAT HQ and they've left the janitor in charge while they sleep off the last few months ice-binge. 

To nobodys surprise, the janitor has issued a statement that makes a little more sense, but then again, he's only on the red pills, not pure crystal.

No typo, just an omission: 1st September TWENTY TWENTY THREE.

As does a person returning to the UK from Thailand..... 

I think this approach has value, it has worked for Australia and NZ when taken to extremes.
