Thailand has reopened its doors to tourism on November 1, 2021. Vaccinated travelers from low-risk countries are now allowed to enter the country. Visitors from the UK, China, Japan, the US, and most of Europe are no longer required to go into quarantine. The number of tourists in the country is expected to go up to 15 million next year, bringing in more than $30 billion. However, only around 42% of the population is fully vaccinated. Thailand is still registering almost 10,000 COVID-19 cases a day. Many Thai business owners from famous tourist districts are worried about the reopening. Wiwan Siriwasaeree, a hostel owner, said, “We fear that after we let the tourists in and the new COVID-19 cases spike again, will we go into another lockdown? I’m not so confident about the situation.”
