  1. Yeah it's all a more than usual, and I do understand the stress it can cause. UK is a non entity for me, it's a decent country but I never usually stay longer than 1yr, 2 at most. Too much of a bubble, and the countryside is just a bit boring to me. Being stuck here for so long (going on 3-4 years due to pandemic and money issues) has been incredibly difficult especially as I've been working from a small room next to my bedroom throughout the whole time. I need to get out for a bit, and the cost of going abroad for a long period works out the same as going to Phuket. I welcome the adventure! :)
  2. Awesome, thanks dude, yeah I believe everywhere requires a PCR test, is that as you transit or will one before the flight from the UK be sufficient? Everyone here has been really helpful so thank you very much! I am going to go ahead and go for it, I will also report back on the process and what it's like there. I'm just excited to visit Phuket Town and go to my old haunts when I was doing my CELTA teaching qualification there so many moons ago. :)
  3. Does anyone know if it is possible to transit in Singapore (1hour) for the flight into Phuket?
  4. This is amazing, thanks for the info! I really hope I can come out and do it, does seem like a good time without the usual chaos of all the the tourists.
  5. One last thing as well, I would like to do m Thanks so much for your answers dude, really helpful! One more question, I would like to do my PADI open water course. Are there restrictions on diving in Phuket? I imagine the marine life would have certainly benefited from lack of tourists so would love to do some dives.
  6. Believe me I have been checking everything for the last month trying to weigh up the risks, there's no info about transitting on any website, only through bangkok which I wont even touch with a barge pole. Trouble is there are many websites saying it's great, others just stating the basic info and virtually no information from people who have actually gone there and had a holiday successfully. Last I saw 0.5% of visitors into the Phuket sandbox have had to move to quarantine hotels. People have slated the logistical awkwardness of actuallly getting into the country and the hoops to have to jump through but this was to be expected anyway. Little to no info about returning back to the UK other than Thailand is on the amber list so self isolation and a pcr test at home on return. I understand this could change quickly.
  7. Thanks for all your replies guys, really helpful! I lived in Bangkok for 5 years and speak a bit of Thai and have been dying to get back out there. UK is alright but I need to get out of the bubble for a bit. I will contact the Embassy and see what they say. If I do get stuck out there for a bit it wont be the worst thing in the world, but obviously want to make sure I can actually relax on the holiday!
  8. Also one more thing, can I transit in Doha to get to Phuket?
  9. Hi guys, I'm from the UK and contemplating coming out to Phuket in august to make the most of the sandbox, but I've got a few questions: 1: What areas are seemingly the most active? I imagine most of the island is quite dead but going to areas that have a little bit of life would be good. 2: Leaving phuket after 14 days to go elsewhere then back to phuket to fly back to UK - does this pose a problem? Would I need to quarantine again for 14 days on re-entry to phuket. Would I be able to get back into the UK If I were to do this? I'm considering Koh samui/phagnan but wont even try if it poses a logistical nightmare. 3: Whats the best insurance to take out if required to relocate to a quarantine hotel (meaning I lose out on prepaid accomodation), do many offer refunds? Also, I'm mainly coming to just relax and chill and finish a book I am writing. What's the deal with spa's? are they open? Can we use them? Oh also one more thing, once the 14 days are up will I have to still stay in Sha+ hotels around Phuket? Or am I free to choose any I like? And also are trips to Koh Yao Noi/yai allowed? Any info would be great, there's very little info on the net from people on the ground there! Thanks for you answers, Mike
