the photo is misleading because neither tourists nor boats are allowed to go into Maya Bay's waters anymore.

Theres a vid on Facebook showing this, not a single Thai tourist or boat operator/staff has one on either !

So there are intelligent free thinking people in Thailand ... go figure.

 

Isn't everyone vax'd or tested to get on Phuket or to get a ferry to PP ?

Guess it's everyone's option, though do know the risk of running foul of the 'rules'.  Apparently none.

I assume the riders who choose not to wear a crash helmet and drivers without seatbelts fall into this category?

Yep .... hurt only themselves.   Though I do wish they'd adjust the law, "causing death by vehicle" / if no helmet, list as suicide, not death by vehicle.

Not wearing mask outside is generally OK, but from an enforcement stand point this is a bad grey area.

 

Not everything that make sense can be factor into making law.

Protect the country and close the borders.. That will teach the tourists for not wearing masks...Better don't let them in than fine , because that will cost tourists.. Bad for the reputation to fine your guests

Jiraphat Jantharo of the Phi Phi Hotel Group in Krabi, southern Thailand said that most foreigners visiting the holiday island were not wearing masks.

Do all of the hotels have notices in all rooms explaining to guests that mask wearing is compulsory?

When I tell our guests, they all show surprise as 'no one told us'.

Then - how do they tell the local Thais?
