We all miss traveling and some of our favorite destinations is slowly 0pening up to vaccinated tourists.
According to the Tourism Authority of Thailand, Phukey will be accepting international tourists starting July 1.
In a letter by the Tourism Authority of Thailand Governor Yuthasak Supasorn, the Phuket Sandbox Model was approved. The plan states that international tourists doesn’t need to undergo quarantine upon arrival as long as they have been fully vaccinated at least 14days prior to arrival in Phuket. It also states the the tourist must come from low to medium risk countries.
Once the tourist arrive in Phuket, he/she must stay in Phuket for at least 7 days before traveling to other parts of Thailand. If one will be staying for less than 7 days, he/she should head straight back to their home country or to their onward destination, if any. To ensure the safety of tourists, they are also required to stay in Safety and Health Administration-accredited hotels.
The Tourism Council of Thailand also proposed a “one night, one dollar” campaign to get more tourists on the island. Though this campaign is still waiting for approval, tourists are looking at rooms that can go as low as $1 per night or around Php50.
