The all new ‘villa quarantine’ in Phuket, Thailand | VIDEO




Now you can do villa quarantine in Phuket. But it’s not you usual ASQ… this one has a view and a price to match. A select few VIP tourists arrived in Phuket to experience the new ‘swanky’ quarantine. It’s still 14 days (or is it 15?) but now with a view and nice linen. Tim Newton introduces us to the VCASQ.

To come to Thailand at the moment you MUST complete a mandatory 14 day quarantine at a registered (ASQ) hotel, at your cost. There is also a fairly long list of paperwork you need to get in place. The main visas currently available are a revamped Tourist Visa and the Special Tourist Visa for long-stay visits to Thailand.

    Sorry TAT….14 days quarantine?….No Thanks! Let’s just get the vaccines out there…. If you can get the government to agree to zero quarantine for vaccinated people…..that would be real achievement!

      Those who want can just take that experimental vaccine, and then there is no reason to talk more about that nonsense. The Phizer and Moderna vaccines are almost 100% effective, and so those who take them are almost 100% protected, and then everything is fine. There is absolutely no need to vaccinate the majority or the whole of the population. That is nonsense.

        The only “nonsense” here is your comment.

        Everything may (MAY) be “fine” for those vaccinated, but what about everyone else?

        Or don’t they matter?

    A good video ,Tim, and you are correct . Quarantine is going to keep visitors away . In my view, high net worth tourism will never bring the same income to Thailand as the mass tourism of previous years . Why is that ? Because high net worth people have so many other options around the world
