Let's not forget they've even talked about requiring tourists to have some sort of tracking device. As far as I know that idea hasn't gone anywhere. I hope they've rejected that lunacy. I don't know how it was supposed to help anything in the first place.
Can you imagine? Ankle bracelets as you exit the airplane . . .
I like this one. How, exactly, are they planning to work that? When are Thai tourists, or Thai locals, not at these places? What are they going to do, have set times when Thais are not allowed? Have squadrons of police clearing out the Thais when these chaperoned groups are coming? That should be good for a laugh if the chaperones are going to take these people on a shopping trip to Terminal 21.Bangkok Herald wrote: ↑Mon Sep 13, 2021 2:06 pmThe “sealed route” travel will continue for a second week, with tourists only allowed to visit predetermined, “family-friendly” sites, such as Big Buddha Hill and Nong Nooch Tropical Garden, again with a government chaperone and only when Thai tourists aren’t there.
Maybe local farang expats can sneak in on some of these fabulous tours. "Hey Phil, did you hear? Today they are taking them to the Pattaya Sheep Farm. Oh boy! Family Friendly! Maybe we can go too. I hope you don't mind waking up a little early. They're taking the tour group at 4:00am. That's when they can be sure Thai tourists won't be there."
Give me a break.
