Who is stupid enough to fly into Thailand ? what is there for them ? Why would you want to fly for over 13 Hours if your flying from Europe with the rule's there enforcing on you ? Stop thinking about traveling there until they fully reopen and there pandemic efforts are under control. I was hoping to fly into Swampy in Nov and stay till March but that's out now. I'll wait till its fully open and no Hoops to jump through.

Very good observations the last 2 posts. If they (regional officials) can pass legislation about travel restrictions then surely they can pass laws about drinking hours or does big brothers long arm dictate all?

Governors and local authorities can order more restrictions than the government, but they can't order less.

I doubt any ministers here rely on or could care less about their salaries 😂!
