Thailand’s Prime Minister, Prayuth Chan-Ocha, has announced that borders will fully open to visitors from 10 low risk countries around the world. It’s been quite a confusing rollercoaster with Thailand’s border policies and quarantine rules with a lot of false starts. Fingers crossed this one stays in tact as I have many Thai friends that would love to visit their loved ones, and it would certainly help the Thai economy to get tourism back on its feet. Personally, I’d love to get back to Thailand and visit one its Six Senses properties.
We don’t know the full list of 10 countries yet, but the following countries won’t have to quarantine upon arrival November 1st:
- U.K. will not be required to undergo isolation on arrival from Nov. 1,
It seems the requirements will loosely be a PCR test prior to departure and one upon arrival. If both are negative, you’re good to go, and free to travel anywhere in Thailand.
The Six Senses Yao Noi is high on my list
Since IHG integrated Six Senses into its portfolio I have wanderlusted over many of them…and this incredible property is high on my list.
It’s 110k a night, but if you have the IHG Rewards Premier credit card from Chase you get a 4th night free.
If you’re looking for a fabulous Bangkok property…The Waldorf Bangkok absolutely blew my socks off
