I haven’t seen the details and I’m assuming The Thaiger has? However I think it’s wrong to indicate South Korea is following Phuket’s lead !! Surely a provocative statement, and so, I’m provoked!

Do they Require $100,000 Covid insurance?

Will you be tested on arrival and twice thereafter before travelling anywhere in the country?

Following Phuket’s lead. Knock it off guys!!
