TAT says expats are confident in living a “new normal” life in Thailand – VIDEO


Expats are confident in living a “new normal” life in Thailand, according to the Tourism Authority of Thailand. In their recent “Trusted Thailand Report” titled “Expat Life in Thailand,” the authority highlighted popular areas in the country among foreigners and spoke to some expats about life in Thailand during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Bangkok’s Sukhumvit Road is the most popular place for expats to live, according to TAT with many multinational businesses and districts in the area. Korea Town, along Sukhumvit between the Nana and Asok BTS stations, is still vibrant and frequently visited. One Korean restaurant business owner at the plaza says they feel safe in Thailand.

“I feel safe in Thailand because everywhere we go there is a body temperature check and we wear a mask at all times. All the waitresses wear masks. And we have to scan a QR code. The customers have to keep distancing and sit just 2 people per table.”

Down the Sukhumvit, between BTS stations Thong Lor and Ekkamai, there are many Japanese supermarkets and restaurants famous among the Japanese community in Bangkok. A retired professor from Japan who now lives in Bangkok told TAT that the Covid-19 prevention policy in Thailand is very strict, but can control the spread of the virus.

With the restrictions on overseas travel, TAT says now is a good time to encourage expats living in Thailand to get to know the country a little better. TAT says they’ve held special trips for expats and also organised the Expat Travel Deal event, adding that travel destinations in Southern Thailand were the most popular among expats.
