For decades now TAT have been world leaders in tourism luring hundreds of millions of tourists to Amazing Thailand, the Land of Smiles, creating millions of jobs and hundreds of millionaires. 

It was interesting to hear from an international team of experts about this subject who revealed other tourist destinations will be copying the TAT scheme.

“Phuket with the Sandbox and the systems they have put in place, and the vaccination rates which are phenomenal. It has to be one of the most vaccinated places on the planet

“Phuket is promoting itself not only as a travel destination, but also as a COVID safe destination. There really are very few parts of the world that have put in place the systems that Phuket has,” Mr Barclay noted."

Phuket will always be a popular destination for 2 groups, illegal migrants and tourists!

“Looking back at the Phuket Sandbox or Samui Plus campaign, foreign tourists did not cause clusters of infections to emerge during each promotional period. The real problem was unregulated travel by locals and illegal migrant workers”.

 The  illegal migrant problem in Thailand and especially in Phuket is a very big concern for the spread !

Thai officials and the TAT aren’t telling the whole story!

 Almost impossible to stop. They are poor desperate people and Thailand is their only way for many of them to put food on the table for their families.

And the situation is getting worse there, not better. 

The Thai businesses need them and they need the income.
