Can Thailand be ready to open on July 1? | VIDEO

So here we are, about 5 weeks away from Thailand re-opening, again, to general travel. Except for the much publicised busload or two of Chinese tourists who have graced our shores over the past 6 months, tourism, has been very patchy. Well, statistically a lot closer to non-existent.

Except for domestic travel, which the Thai government have been pumping up with billions in stimulus packages.

Now, both the TAT and the Thai Sports and Tourism Minister have spent the last 2 months insisting that Thailand WILL re-open from July 1… specifically Phuket which is the first pilot location before they roll out the Sandbox plan to other popular tourist zones around the country. They’re even launching a specific tourism campaign in foreign countries called “Amazing Thailand….even more amazing than before”.

The question remains however, will anyone come?
