It is heartening to see the city coming back to life. So many small businesses have been badly hit for such a long time and hopefully this will mark the beginning of their return to earning a living. Without tourism this city has little going for it so we can live in hopes of a continuing revival.

Exodus from Bangkok I wonder?

So instead of having two years to consider a different business plan they sat around waiting for tourists to come back and possibly suffer the same fate in the future?

A large number of tourists in Thapae and riverside last night. Outnumbered however by Thais. It was very crowded. Unsurprisingly Tourists were unmasked but Thais and, I suspect farang residents nearly all wearing masks.
