Bangkok to reopen for vaccinated tourists in October

Thailand plans to reopen Bangkok to fully vaccinated visitors in October, officials said Friday (Sep 10), as the kingdom seeks to
salvage a tourism industry hammered by the pandemic.

It can be counted as having only one ฝาก20รับ100 mobile phone. It can connect everything and everything in this world.

Before COVID-19, tourism made up a fifth of Thailand's national income but severe travel curbs imposed to fight the virus saw
the usual flood of foreign visitors dwindle to almost nothing, contributing to the economy's worst performance in over 20 years.

The kingdom is pressing ahead with plans to reopen despite a deadly third wave of infections, driven by the Delta variant.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand said that from Oct 1, fully jabbed foreign travellers will be able to visit Bangkok and four other
provinces without undergoing two weeks' hotel quarantine.

Instead, the five areas - also including Chiang Mai, Chon Buri, Phetchaburi and Prachuap Khiri Khan provinces - are expected to
follow a "sandbox" model of the type piloted since July in the holiday island of Phuket.

Under the sandbox scheme, tourists have to stay within a certain area for seven days after arrival and take COVID-19 tests.

Later in October, 21 more destinations will be added to the list including Chiang Rai, Sukhothai and popular seaside getaway Rayong.

But Thailand's third and deadliest COVID-19 wave has not yet fully subsided, and the tourism agency warned the plans could change.

Thailand got through 2020 relatively unscathed, recording low numbers of infections, but since April the Delta variant has taken hold
and cases have soared to more than 1.3 million, with almost 14,000 deaths.

More than 29,000 fully vaccinated international visitors have hit the beach at Phuket under its sandbox scheme, generating nearly
US$50 million in revenue, according to government spokesman Thanakorn Wangboonkongchana.

Three more Thai islands also reopened - Samui, Tao and Phangan - with slightly more onerous restrictions.
