Heard rumours of how they're trying to open up tourism and it doesn't make for good reading. Have you heard out?

I read the forums on trip advisor and it doesn’t sound pretty currently. 
 

im due to be in Bangkok and Phuket. Saying that all street food has gone and possibly not to return and a lot of small hotels aren’t reopening and are just to get sold off for development. Sounds like a car crash. I’m keen to get my money Spent over there 

Im sure it’s maybe @Mannyroader who lives over there isn’t it? Maybe he can add something as to what it’s like and how it’s goiNg to pan out.

Would love to go, just need to make sure I'm not redundant at the end of the month. R says its amazing, as have you, something for next year perhaps? Be good to have a trip

Thailand without street food and the small independent places would just feel weird Just can't see how they could manage it when so many Thai people rely on those type of places for their income? That's part of what gives it it's soul.

Mind you I saw Muay Thai has started again at Lumpinee and the fighters came out wearing face masks and kept them on for the Wai Kru. Can't tell whether it's a piss take or not but it looked genuine!

No foreign tourists being allowed in since April. Some are being allowed in now for "medical tourism" subject to 14 day quarantine after treatment. People with work permits and family here will be allowed back too. Month by month more relaxation of restrictions will occur but it is all subject to countries having a low infection rate. Korea, Japan and China will be first in, guests from Western Europe, India, Russia and USA will have to wait. The hope is that by October/November things will be much improved.

Phuket specifically is going to be one of 5 islands in the South accepting tourists in "bubbles". Fly in, stay in a resort hotel, go home. No going outside the resort. It is baby steps for now. Bangkok is pretty good now for Thai tourists as it is bereft of the mass of tourists, most of whom would be Chinese.

Bars re-opened this week. In Pattaya some are OK, others less so. Some hotels are open; Hard Rock has 500 guests this weekend with the Govt subsidising room rates and domestic flights. Other hotels may never re-open but construction of new hotels continues. Two new builds near me, one 24 floors, one 26. Plenty of street food here in Pattaya, seems as much as there ever was.

If you ever need an update on how things are, please let me know. My brother wants to come early next year and my beloved better half has 2 businesses that rely on tourists, so I am keeping a close eye on things. The online version of the Bangkok Post is also a good source of info.

Over 100 again today.  Seems mad that this is now seen as normal. Nobody gives a fuck anymore. 

Death rate is lower than it was this time last year.

Police voice concerns over Social Distancing after last nights first night of pubs opening.

No Police officers were injured.

No Arrest made (as far as i can see).

I didn't hear them voicing their concerns over Social Distancing during the recent Protests, or would this be the MSM spinning their usual shite....again! 🙄
