Hi, my wife and I are retired and have visited Thailand for the past five years (not this year), each visit being for circa 3 months taking advantage of the superb medical and dental facilities, we also have taken side trips to Vietnam, Cambodia, Japan and Australia to visit my daughter but returning to Thailand before heading back to UK. 

We are booked to come over in mid January 22 as I need a second eye operation that was postponed this year due to Covid restrictions. We like the Jomtien Beach area and would love to know what it is like today regarding shops, restaurants massage parlours etc. an up to date video of a walk down the beach road would be great, also, are the swimming pools at hotels and condo resorts still closed? We really don't want to be stranded with nothing to do.

Thanks Charles

Dear Charles,

Thailand is in a bad shape, I don't know about Jomtien as I'm not based there.
If you want a more vivid life I guess it's found in Bangkok or Phuket... the rest is just all slow and with a lot of shops closed down it might not be the same as you known it. Even Bangkok and Phuket are slower then regular.

Just my two cents. If I would be outside of Thailand and known Thailand in it's glory days I would give it some time to recover minimum of 5 years I would say. Don't want to be pessimistic.

Hi Shark Thanks, gosh that sounds dire but we are heading back in mid Jan for an eye op and if its as dead as it appears to be just now then I guess we will forfeit the apartment rental and checkout nearby countries for a side trip, have also applied for Oz tourist visa, the UK is officially broken so congrats to at least being so ewhere warm 🤣

Hi Charles,

Thailand has many beauty to offer which can now be better checked then during 'high peak season' which won't be coming anytime soon. I don't know how much countries will be opened in January. I guess it's like Thailand can change on a day-to-day basis.

UK might be broken but they're still fishing in big wales like Shell for example.

Don't see my previous post as a reason not to come but perhaps more to travel around, depending on how confident one is on a motorbike this can be a very cool thing todo in Thailand.
