Eighty percent agreed it is not worth traveling outside Thailand now

Actually, we did leave... last June, as cases were spiking and not a vial of vaccine to be found (and it was Sinovac, if you could find one.)  Been in Hawaii since then which is nice, but crazy expensive. Starting now to plan our return to LoS. Maybe.

Jan 13 2022 article:

 

A surge in Covid infections on cruise ships is causing mayhem across the industry, leaving passengers stranded aboard ships, exacerbating staff shortages and prompting the CDC to warn US passengers against all cruise travel.

 

The CDC director said this week that Covid cases have increased 30-fold in just two weeks. Every one of the nearly 100 cruise ships currently carrying passengers in US waters has reported enough Covid-19 cases to merit investigation by the CDC, according to the agency’s website.

And taking a Covid test in order to be able to dine out in many eateries !

Where are these 'many eateries' located ?

 

I have been to 10+ restaurants in the past month in Bangkok and a test has never been requested.

I certainly don't relish sitting in a sealed metal container with hundreds of other people breathing the same air, who may or may not be infected with Delta for a total return journey of 2 x 16 hours sectors ....... and then dealing with the entry requirements for the return and perhaps finding out on day 5 some other passenger has passed along covid and then off to quarantine. You would need another holiday after that.

It could be that 80% or more of the travelers outside of Thailand have agreed that it is not a good time to travel there for now because of the complicated traveling restrictions and policies.

I agree that it is not worth leaving Thailand or leaving your home country to go to Thailand.

 When this pandemic truly becomes an endemic, then it may be okay to travel, but that day is still

quite a while away.  Of course the flat earthers, and anti vaccinators and anti maskers will not have

the patience and want this pandemic to be gone today. Too bad for them.

Not for me. My home in Farangland is Perth, WA, which is probably harder to get in and out of than North Korea. So I'll just wait it out until the WHO declares the pandemic over and both WA & Thailand relax all the tough rules & quarantine. And if that never happens then I guess I'm here until the day I kick the bucket.

Sorry, for me leaving would be a problem. I have nowhere to go in my former country (GerMoney) anyway, and as an orphan in GerMoney I would face immediate lockup in one of their care homes for the elderly (I'm 73 yo) Here in Pattaya everything is fine.
