SORRY, SA-BAI-GAI ARE CLOSED AGAIN.

It is with a mixture of relief and frustration that we have been told by the government to close once again due to being a Close Contact business. We will once again keep our masseur Sasiwan on furlough and she will be ready to carry on the businees for us once we are told it is safe to re-open.

COVID-19 IN THAILAND

The Thai government reacted very swiftly in combating COVID-19. As soon as total infections reached 100 in February preventative measures were introduced immediately based on Face, Hands, Space. In March local travel restrictions were introduced. Early April all international travel was banned and the borders closed. This situation still exists today except for specific cases, primarily repatriation of Thai Nationals and spouses. The net effect has been (dated 10th November):- Total Cases 3,840 - Recovered/Discharged 3,661 - In Treatment 119 - Total Deaths 60

TOURISM IN THAILAND

The Thai government is currently exploring ways to re-open the country to Tourism. Since 2014 the government has invested heavily in the infrastructure of the country. A massive investment in the roads network has taken place with many big highways constructed to improve access. No longer is it necessary to use a pick up truck unless you need to get to some of the more remote Hidden Thailand sites. The Rail network is undergoing a major transformation, much needed as there has been little investment for seemingly decades. A major initiative is on-going to provide a high speed rail service to link industrial areas and significant areas of tourism, this is probably half way to completion. Within the Metropolitan area of Bangkok the Skytrain overhead rail system has also expanded immensely, connecting cheaply not just tourist areas but many suburban areas too. Certainly tourism will be very different in the future as the government has embarked on a program of upgrading many of the more popular venues in order to make them appeal to a different type of tourist. Backpacking may become a thing of the past. We are happy to answer email enquiries about places to visit as people prepare for vacations in 2021/2. Phen has taken me to some of the popular places but also many places not on the main tourist track. I have posted photos on the GALLERY page.
