Reopening Doors: Thailand has eased up on its travel requirements!
IMPORTANT UPDATE: Thailand has fully reopened from 1 October 2022.
Back in July 2021, Thailand reopened its doors to international travelers to selected areas such as Phuket and Krabi. They did so under the Sandbox Program, which is a system that allows travelers to visit certain places but must quarantine for 7 days at a SHA+ hotel.
Aside from a vaccine certificate, there were other requirements, too, such as procuring a Thailand Pass and having a health insurance policy worth USD20,000 or more it has to cover COVID-19 treatments.
This scheme was created to curb the spread of COVID-19, and it has done so successfully over the past few months. With the success of this program came other two: Test & Go and ASQ (Alternative Quarantine), but these have now been scrapped and travelers just need to follow these requirements:
Now that you know that Thailand has now reopened itself to the world, you can now embark on exciting adventures around the Kingdom and discover many of its tropical gems! We even have a couple of suggestions that'll enrich your stay!
1) Book a private transfer to your hotel, and vice-versa when you're leaving!
If you're arriving at or departing from Suvarnabhumi International Airport, we recommend that you book a private transfer that will take you to or from your hotel/accommodation! Saves you the hassle of trying to hail a cab or taking other modes of transportation.
2) Book private car charters for trips from city to city!
Speaking of booking private transfers, Klook also offers private transfers that will take you from city to city, like from Bangkok to areas like Pattaya, or from Phuket Town to Ao Nang or Klong Muang. Take advantage of these to get to faraway areas in comfort!
3) Visit the famous Bangkok Floating Markets!
The Floating Markets of Bangkok are some of Thailand's most important attractions. Not only are they historic areas, but they are also one of the prime shopping destinations in the country's capital. The Floating Markets are veritable mazes of stalls, boats, and people, making anyone's shopping trip an adventure in its own right as they navigate themselves to buy tasty local snacks and sundries.
4) Discover the wonders of Phuket!
Phuket is arguably the most popular beach getaway destination in Thailand! Of course, it's more than its white sandy beaches. Aside from swimming, clubbing, and sunbathing, there are a wide variety of things to do in Phuket, such as island hopping and visiting the likes of Phi Phi Island and Khai Island via speedboat, touring the town and seeing points of interest like the Big Buddha and Wat Chalong Temple, and even interacting with elephants with the guidance of a tribe of people that have lived alongside the adorable gargantuan creatures!
5) Explore the natural wonders of Chiang Mai!
Nature lovers will have the time of their lives in Chiang Mai, which is home to many of the country's most scenic natural treasures! We even have a wide variety of exciting experiences for you to try that'll have you engaging and immersing yourself with nature, such as river rafting, touring the famous Doi Inthanon National Park where you'll have the opportunity to visit the highest point in Thailand, and driving an ATV along dirt roads!
6) Treat yourself with a refreshing spa experience!
If you feel tired from your flight or after sightseeing all day, you can book an appointment at any one of the many spas around the country. Whichever you pick, an expert masseuse or masseur will pamper you with their massage techniques and products. You'll definitely feel loose and rejuvenated right after! Some of the best spas include One More Thai Massage & Spa in Bangkok, Oasis Spa in Phuket, and Zira Spa in Chiang Mai!
