Thinking of visiting Phuket (Cos I have to) in the near future but I have to get a PCR test to the tune of £99 then when on arrival in Thailand another two tests to the tune of 5000 Baht.....Plus 300 Baht at airport (extortion?)....Then designated government hotel? where after negative PCR test I can venture out until curfew......I've come to the conclusion it's all about greed.....When's the next flight to Tenerife?

Wait.  Restrictions will be eased soon, and with a bit of luck, totally removed mid this year (maybe sooner). 

Just today one of the many Thai billionaires in the travel industry placed an open letter to the Thai Junta Govt in the media, stating that until all restrictions were removed then tourists will not come in the numbers needed to help restore the Thai economy (which the Junta Govt desperately needs to happen well before the next election in 2023).  

I think what they need is some sort of 'proof' that Omicron is the main strain in Thailand and that it is not as 'deadly'. Then suddenly they will drop all restrictions and open the doors - then shut them again if another mutation wave breaks out (sorry).

Spain is quite cold during this time. 

I am Spanish myself and just returned back to Thailand from my hometown in Spain, temps would go down to -5C during night (obviously this was in the north of Spain). 

But still down south in the Canary Islands, you will probably have lowest temps of 15C or so.
