Does the government want increase in tourism or do they want the tourist to travel another country in this region.?

Ho hum, just another U-turn from a chaotic administration that has no leadership, multiple towering egos and a dearth of competence in ever level. Increasingly it feels like the inmates have taken over the asylum.

I walk daily in Ayutthaya old city and have witnessed the return of foreign tourists to the area.

From what I see the Thai people continue to wear masks and all foreigners , except for a handful ( usually those accompanied by a Thai National), don’t.

I would say the Thai will welcome this reintroduction but visiting foreign tourists will have a hard time accepting this.

No, no and no! I think restricting your breathing all the time is unhealthy and I can’t see the need or benefit. I’ve complied, worn them and struggled with the heat and breathing since living here. If you’re sick wear them to help protect others, if not then you should have a choice. The fact Thais don’t want to let go of their mask security blanket has emboldened this government but tourists will vote with their feet if they bring them back in.

Thais are brainwashed. Anyway, why would it make a difference? Hardly any Thai has taken off their masks since June 24 so I don't understand the need to re-introduce something that nearly everyone complies with, except to cause chaos, confusion and make people, particularly foreigners, upset.

To go backwards like this would be sending a terrible message for tourism and Thailand's willingness to move forward.

I'm done with masks. I am no longer wearing one. This constant flip flopping is only going to cause more distress and confusion and foreigners are simply NOT going to start wearing one again, period. Of course, plenty of foreigners still do, but my point is, in those settings where masks no longer need to be worn, it's going to get very problematic if they try to enforce this lunacy again.

The ultra paranoid masked psychopaths are going out of their minds, when they can't control other people's breathing. They're freaks in desperate need of a good psychiatrist, they just don't know it.

Animals are muzzled, not humans, unless you bought the wrong product.

Having said that, there are some humans that arguably should be muzzled.😂

The cases are barely ticking up, yet we are witnessing this kind of thinking. Bizarre. Resist madness.

Merely a suggestion, no legal requirement, same as before. If you feel safer wearing one while by yourself in the open air, then by all means wear it. /thread

Stop scaremongering with your bar stool wisdom, it's pathetic, or do you have any evidence to back up what you are saying? Nah, thought not.

True. People go on holiday for freedom, enjoyment and to observe and interact with the locals. All this is difficult when everyone is muzzled up and scuttling around faceless.

Read the title. Everyone in public areas, i.e., everyone visible to those visiting the place.
