Top News Thailand mulls golf quarantine to boost tourism By TTG Asia / Posted on 14 January, 2021 16:26 A plan to allow foreign tourists arriving in Thailand to serve their quarantine in one of the country’s golf resorts is currently in the works, as the government seeks to boost the coronavirus-battered tourism industry. According to a Bangkok Post report, Thailand’s tourism minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn recently told reporters that discussions are underway with the Public Health Ministry and the country’s coronavirus taskforce to “offer hotel and golf quarantine for tourists with medical certificates”. Thailand looks to leverage the country’s many golf resorts to revive its ailing tourism sector If the plan is green-lit, foreign tourists would be able to spend their 14-day quarantine at a designated resort, roaming freely and playing golf on the premises, rather than just isolating in their rooms. The plan comes as Thailand finds itself in the throes of a second wave of Covid-19 infections, after relative success in controlling the virus spread for months. As of January 12, Thailand has reported 10,834 Covid-19 infections, with a death toll of 67.
