Koh Samui To Follow Phuket In International Reopening

Category: Tourism, Posted:19 Jun 2021 | 16:29 pm

Leading tourism news out of Thailand has the government’s CCSA (Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration approve in principal a plan to open a sealed route to Samui in mid-July.

The plan covers the three islands of Koh Samui, Koh Tao and Koh Phangan and would require travelers to first stay in an ASQ hotel for three days, then move to Koh Samui on a sealed route.

From that time they must stay in Koh Samui and can go to the other two islands on days eight to fourteen or stay where they are.

Bangkok Airways is a key driver of the initiative and the concept of Sandbox islands is at the forefront of Thailand’s overseas reopening.

One other key point from CCSA’s meeting according to the TAT governor was the removal of a Phuket Sandbox clause that excluded expatriates who are permanent residents and Thais in the initiative.

Again, we are waiting for clear Sandbox guidelines from the Royal Gazette, so stay tuned.
