January 2022
THAILAND NOW!
MAKE WAY FOR NEW BEGINNINGS
A NEW YEAR WITH NEW BEGINNINGS
Happy 2022!  Make way for a year of new beginnings, exciting adventures, and unforgettable memories! 
Despite the many challenges our industry continues to encounter, we remain optimistic that better days are on the horizon.  
As one of the first Asian countries to slowly lessen travel restrictions, Thailand continues to implement new measures for fully vaccinated travellers to enter the country with the recent announcement of re-opening three more ‘sandbox’ destinations—Krabi, Phang Nga, and Koh Samui (including the islands of Koh Phangan, & Koh Tao) – in addition to Phuket.  
Effective January 11, fully vaccinated travellers can now apply for the Thailand Pass under the ‘Sandbox’ program and spend 7 nights at one of the designated sandbox destinations before proceeding elsewhere in the country.
NEW SANDBOX DESTINATIONS
SAMUI, KOH PHANGAN & KOH TAO 
These palm-studded tropical islands provide the perfect get-away for travellers seeking an exotic tropical paradise for rest and relaxation. From beautiful sandy beaches and sparkling turquoise waters, travellers will find a wide variety of hotel/resort options to suit any budget as well as a diverse array of unique attractions and activities.
