Must read

 Chiang Mai is the first province in Thailand to welcome Asian tourists again. As part of the “Unlock Thailand” program, from November 1, aboard flight can land in this province, Thanes Phetsuwan, the deputy governor of marketing of the TAT announced yesterday.

“After the discussions with the TAT office and the private tourism sector of Chiang Mai, we have come to the conclusion to welcome the foreign tourists with direct flights to the province instead of letting the tourists complete the mandatory stay under the Phuket Sandbox -regulation. Our main target is Korean tourists who travel continuously to Thailand in the last quarter of each year, including tourists from India and Singapore,” he said.

Thanes also said there will be a meeting between TAT and airlines on Monday so that the private sector in Chiang Mai can propose standard operating procedures.

“There are two versions of the Unlock Thailand program, the ASEAN and the Asia version. It is a great opportunity to boost the Thai tourism sector as the government has relaxed more conditions, rules and restrictions. We are currently speeding up proceedings in an effort to launch the program on November 1, Thanes added.
