If I read this correctly, they want you to test on arrival, get your hotel night booked till the results, then go ( if negative of course…. if positive ….😯).

Okay fair enough, buuut then !!

On day 5 test again !!

On days 2 thru 4 you can go about your business, but do you need to hang around the original location to take the 2nd test ?? ( if so then that’s a 5 day sandbox surely ? ). Or can you go home, or to your final holiday destination, to take the 5th day test locally.

Not clear .

But what is clear is it’s not “ Test and go reinstated “ it’s “ Test and go x 2 “.

Seems like every time they change any rules here they have to incorporate some extra ( unnecessary ) details and leave it far from satisfactorily clear to those who have to navigate the extra hurdles.

get a clue. The tourist related sectors or what's left of them, desperately want visitors back. What this regime wont come out and say is "we really dont want visitors and we'll keep you guessing and flip flopping the entry rules, until you just give up. It's working. Most holiday seekers have moved on to friendlier getaways anyway.

How do you know? I've never seen a survey? Can you point me in the right direction for some well intentioned information? Thanks.

a survey? Nope. But here's some recent well intentioned info. 

"Thailand’s Tourism and Sports Ministry has dusted off its calculator this morning and is predicting there will be at least 8 million tourists coming to Thailand this year. A few weeks ago they were predicting 10 – 5 million arrivals for 2022. Tourism and Sports Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn made the random prediction..."

blah, blah

Good question - many would probably like to know where these "friendlier getaways" are too 😂

Skinned humans hanging from underpasses anyone ? Human head bombs then ? Day of the Dead…. lovely…. Or ignore the culture from your fortified gated seaside towns ……Why is Cuba never mentioned if you must have Latin culture?

I'm sure I am, but where does it say that they've all changed their minds about coming to Thailand?

That's not information. That's just repetition.

Yeah,  you guys are prolly correct. Thailand should definately shoot to the top five of the gotta-go destinations this year, now that the test & go version 2 is set to roll out Feb 1.  Eight million seems a low ball estimate. It was just a couple weeks ago when "The CCSA  confirmed that they definitely don’t intend to reinstate the Test & Go programme that allows vaccinated travellers to enter Thailand and only have to isolate for as long as it takes for their arrival RT-PCR test to confirm negative results."  Now that the CCSA has cleared that up, air & hotel bookings should start to skyrocket very soon. Exciting year ahead!
