Travel after Covid-19 Reopening to Thailand

The Kingdom of Thailand (Thai: ราชอาณาจักรไทย) is a monarchy in Southeast Asia with coasts on the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand.

Thailand is the heart of the Southeast Asian mainland, bordering Myanmar in the west, Laos in the north, Cambodia in the east, and Malaysia in the south. As Thailand has comparably good infrastructure with Bangkok being an intercontinental flight hub, the country is the gateway to the region for most foreign visitors.

With great food, a tropical climate, fascinating culture and superb beaches, Thailand is the most visited country in Southeast Asia. It is called the “Land of Smiles”.

Thailand is the country in Southeast Asia most visited by tourists, and for good reason. You can find almost anything here: thick jungle as green as can be, crystal blue waters that feel more like a warm bath than a swim in the ocean, and food that can curl your nose hairs while tap dancing across your taste buds. Exotic, yet safe; cheap, yet equipped with every modern amenity you need, there is something for every interest and every price bracket, from beach front backpacker bungalows to some of the best luxury hotels in the world. And despite the heavy flow of tourism, Thailand retains its quintessential identity, with a culture and history all its own and a carefree people famed for their smiles and their fun-seeking sanuk lifestyle. Many travellers come to Thailand and extend their stay well beyond their original plans and others never find a reason to leave. Whatever your cup of tea is, they know how to make it in Thailand.

This is not to say that Thailand doesn’t have its downsides, including the considerable growing pains of an economy where an agricultural labourer is lucky to earn 100 Thai Baht per day while the nouveaux riches cruise past in their BMWs. Bangkok, the capital, is notorious for its traffic jams and rampant development has wrecked much of once-beautiful Pattaya and Phuket. In heavily touristed areas, some lowlifes, both Thai and farang, have made scamming tourists into an art form.

Finally, despite being relatively economically developed, Thailand still suffers from problems that afflict most Southeast Asian countries, such as new towns and neighbourhoods built haphazardly and with no concern for architectural beauty, the lack of accessibility and pedestrian-friendliness in large cities, and often, presence of trash and litter in both cities and rural areas.

History of Thailand

The earliest identifiable Thai kingdom was founded in Sukhothai in 1238, reaching its zenith under King Ramkhamhaeng in the 14th century before falling under the control of the kingdom of Ayutthaya, which ruled most of present-day Thailand and much of today’s Laos and Cambodia as well, eventually also absorbing the northern kingdom of Lanna. Ayutthaya was sacked in 1767 by the Burmese, but King Taksin regrouped and founded a new capital at Thonburi. His successor, General Chakri, moved across the river to Bangkok and became King Rama I, the founding father of the Chakri dynasty that still rules in a constitutional monarchy.

Known as Siam until 1939, Thailand is Southeast Asia’s oldest independent country and the only one never to have been colonised by a foreign power, and the country’s inhabitants are fiercely proud of that fact. A bloodless revolution in 1932 led to a constitutional monarchy. During World War II, while Japan conquered the rest of Southeast Asia (see Pacific War), only Thailand was not conquered by the Japanese due to smart political moves. Allied with Japan during World War II, Thailand became a US ally following the conflict. Thailand was a base of US air operations during the Vietnam War. There was a communist insurgency, with little success, that only ended in 1983. After a string of military dictatorships and quickly toppled civilian prime ministers, Thailand stabilized into a fair approximation of a democracy and the economy boomed through tourism and industry.

On December 26, 2004, an earthquake in the Indian Ocean caused a tsunami to hit Thailand’s western coast, causing tremendous damage and killing thousands of people, especially at the seaside resorts.

In September 2006, a swift and bloodless military coup overthrew populist tycoon Thaksin Shinawatra’s democratically-elected but widely criticized government, exposing a fault line between the urban elite that has ruled Thailand traditionally and the rural masses that supported Thaksin. Thaksin went into exile and a series of unstable governments followed, with the successors of Thaksin’s Thai Rak Thai party and the royalist-conservative People’s Alliance for Democracy duking it out both behind the scenes and, occasionally, out in the streets, culminating in Bangkok’s airports being seized and shut down for a week in Nov 2008.

A new party led by Thaksin’s sister, Yingluck Shinawatra, won the 2011 elections, but while like Thaksin, she maintained popularity in the Central Thai countryside, the North and Isaan, Muslims in the South, powerful people in the Thai military and the Bangkok establishment never accepted the legitimacy of her government, and on May 7, 2014, Thailand’s Constitutional Court ordered her and her cabinet to step down. On May 22, 2014, the Thai army staged a bloodless coup, declared a nationwide curfew, and went about arresting members of Yingluck’s Pheu Thai Party. The curfew was lifted on June 13, 2014, but the basic elements that have led to the conflict are still unresolved.

After the death in late 2016 of King Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX), the world’s longest-reigning monarch and a deeply loved and respected figure of near-mythic proportions, his son King Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun (Rama X) acceded to the throne.

Thailand has grown into the main economic centre of the region, and today attracts many migrant workers from its much poorer neighbours Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia.

Culture & Tradition of Thailand

Wat Doi Suthep, Chiang Mai

Thai culture is heavily influenced by Buddhism. However, unlike the Buddhist countries of East Asia, Thailand’s Buddhists follow the Theravada school, which is arguably closer to its Indian roots and places a heavier emphasis on monasticism. Thai temples known as wats, resplendent with gold and easily identifiable with their ornate, multicolored, pointy roofs are ubiquitous. Becoming an orange-robed monk for a short period, typically the three-month rainy season, is a common rite of passage for young Thai boys and men. That being said, there are also prominent Mahayana Buddhist temples, most of which were built in Chinese architectural styles to serve the ethnic Chinese community.

Thailand in Crisis – No work without Tourists

thaibuddhafacemask

The holiday paradise lives from tourism, a dangerous addiction, as can now be seen in the corona crisis.

The corona crisis is leaving deep traces in Thailand, although not necessarily in the health sector. The number of infected people, at just over 3000, is relatively low – with a population of around 70 million people, but the government ordered border closed and the slowdown in the global economy have hit Thailand’s economy hard.

Airports closed

Thai Airways still advertises its services on the Internet with airy promises, but the Thai state carrier has not been flying since April and until the end of June, none of their planes will take off as Thailand’s airports are closed for international flights.

The over 20,000 employees of Thai Airways are hard hit as the airline cut the wages this month from EUR 2,500 to EUR 350, said a Thai Airways steward via WhatsApp and he fears that he will lose his job and doesn’t want his name mentioned.

Badly hit state airline

He didn’t know what would happen to the employees. “We only learn everything from the media,” but this practice suits Thai Airways, after all THAI was known for the opaque business practices, says the temporarily unemployed flight attendant.

The Thai economy has failed to promote innovation and prepare itself for a crises
Somprawin Manprasert – Chief Economist of the Thai Bank of Ayudhya

Even before the corona crisis, the state-owned Thai airline was badly hit. The airline has now asked the Thai government for a loan of almost EUR 2.3 billion, otherwise THAI would have to file for bankruptcy.

However, the government gave no money, but provided Thai Airways under the supervision of a bankruptcy judge. This is to ensure that the airline is restructured and the management is changed ao that the airline can continue to fly and keep its employees, it said.

Lack of innovative ability

For Somprawin Manprasert, chief economist at the Thai Bank of Ayudhya, the collapse of Thai Airways is a symbol of the state of the Thai economy. Thai Airways as a state-owned company has not adapted and improved in recent years, he says.

“That doesn’t work in a constantly changing world in which you have to remain competitive,” says Manprasert. “In the same way, other Thai industries have failed to promote innovation and prepare themselves for crises.”

A severe economic crisis threatens

In recent years, Thailand has mainly focused on tourism and the production and export of cars and electronic devices. Because of Corona and the closure of the borders, tourism has collapsed completely and exports fell drastically in the first quarter.

Experts emphasize that – as elsewhere in the world – Thailand’s economy will grow more slowly than before the crisis and some economists even predict that the country will slide into the worst economic crisis since the 1998 Asian crisis.

According to a World Bank report, many Thais will soon have difficulty meeting their basic needs.

With Bangkok’s history dating back to the 1700s, when the area served as a small trading center and port as part of what was then Siam, you can immerse yourself in the crux of Thailand’s past. A visit to the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew to see the amazing Emerald Buddha will give you a true feel for Bangkok’s sense of tradition, as will a visit to Wat Pho, the Temple of the Reclining Buddha and the iconic Wat Arun.

With today’s population in Bangkok passing the 9 million mark, it is no wonder this ever adaptable city has added to its list of attractions with more modern feats. The shopping malls are an inspiration with every luxury brand imaginable and Bangkok is also home to a myriad of galleries and museums to keep you entertained.

The glitz and glamour of modern day Bangkok starts with the world leading Suvarnabhumi Airport, which is a sparkling welcome to this main hub for South East Asian travel. The airport is complemented by efficient transport links which make getting around Bangkok easier than ordering a Pad Thai. And if the sky train and metro aren’t your style, brightly coloured taxis, which are both affordable and usually air conditioned are everywhere (do insist on a metered fare). As a fun alternative, you could also try the river ferry.

When it comes to spending your Thai Baht, Bangkok has much to offer beyond its malls. The city is awash with markets and stalls all serving up a bargain and a great place for picking up Thai souvenirs. From shopping markets, to night markets offering mouth-watering local fayre which is as fresh as food comes, you won’t find time to tire in this amazing city.

But when your legs are feeling the strain, head to one of Bangkok’s classy cocktail bars – aim for a rooftop at sunset for amazing views of this sprawling city. The city also has an impressive range of international cuisine from award winning chefs which complements and competes well with the local food on offer.
Picking up a news skill in Bangkok is easy. From delicious cooking classes to meditation or Thai massage (whether as a pupil, or indeed indulging in a bit of well-deserved pampering), the city and its people are more than happy to share their knowledge.

If you look skyward for a sense of when to travel, monsoon can start from May through to November. Keep an eye on the local forecast as Bangkok’s flooding can be prohibitive and the general unpredictability of the weather suggests you pack both an umbrella and sunscreen.

Whether your trip to Bangkok is for business or pleasure, the sights on offer together with the warm welcome assured from the Thai people, will make your trip memorable.

Bangkok (Thai: กรุงเทพฯ Krung Thep) is the capital and largest city of Thailand and, with a population of over eleven million inhabitants, by far its main city. Its high-rise buildings, heavy traffic congestion, intense heat and naughty nightlife do not instantly give you a warm welcome — but don’t let your first impression mislead you. It is one of Asia’s most cosmopolitan cities with magnificent temples and palaces, authentic canals, busy markets and a vibrant nightlife that has something for everyone.

For years, it was only a small trading post at the banks of the Chao Phraya River, until King Rama I, the first monarch of the present Chakri dynasty, turned it into the capital of Siam in 1782, after the burning of Ayutthaya by Burmese invaders. Since then, Bangkok has turned into a national treasure house and functions as Thailand’s spiritual, cultural, political, commercial, educational and diplomatic centre.

Bangkok Districts

Bangkok is a huge and modern city humming with nightlife and fervor. Administratively, it is split up into 50 districts (เขต khet), which are further split into 180 sub-districts (แขวง khwaeng), but these are more often used in official business and for addresses. Visitors will find the conceptual division below of the main areas more useful for getting around.

Map of Bangkok

Siam Square The area around Siam Square, including Ratchaprasong and Phloen Chit Road, is Bangkok’s modern commercial core, full of glitzy malls and hotels. The Skytrain intersection at Siam Square is the closest thing Bangkok has to a centre.

Sukhumvit The long Sukhumvit Road is an exclusive district popular among expatriates and upper class locals. It is filled with quality hotels, restaurants and nightclubs. Part of its nightlife represents Bangkok’s naughty image, particularly Soi Cowboy and Nana Entertainment Plaza.

Silom The area around Silom Road and Sathorn Road is Thailand’s sober financial centre by day, but Bangkok’s primary party district by night when quarters like the infamous Patpong come alive.

Rattanakosin Between the river and Sukhumvit lies the densely packed “Old Bangkok”, home to Bangkok’s best-known sights, such as the Grand Palace and Wat Pho.

Khao San Road On the northern part of Rattanakosin, Bangkok’s backpacker mecca Khao San Road and the surrounding district of Banglamphu have everything a budget traveller could possibly be looking for.

Yaowarat and Phahurat Along Yaowarat Road you will find Bangkok’s Chinatown, while Phahurat Road is the home of the city’s sizeable Indian community. This multicultural district is filled with temples, shrines, seafood restaurants and street markets.

Dusit This leafy, European-style area is the political centre of Thailand, home to numerous political institutions and the monarchy. Its breezy palaces, lush gardens and broad avenues give this district its distinct character.

Thonburi The quieter west bank of the Chao Phraya River. Most visitors explore this district with a canal tour, at least taking in Wat Arun, the Royal Barges National Museum and one of the floating markets.

Pratunam Pratunam is a large garment market with hundreds of fashion stores selling both retail and wholesale. It also includes Baiyoke Tower II and Victory Monument.

Phahonyothin The area around Phahonyothin Road and Viphavadi Rangsit Road is a large suburb in northern Bangkok. In weekends, it is the best place to go hunting for bargains. The Chatuchak Weekend Market has more than 8,000 stalls selling anything and everything under the sun.

Ratchadaphisek Since the completion of the metro line, Ratchadaphisek Road has developed into an entertainment mecca for the locals. The sois,(side streets off busy main roads of “Ratchada” are popular clubbing spots, as is Royal City Avenue (RCA).

Ramkhamhaeng Along Ramkhamhaeng Road lies a vast residential area with big shopping malls and amusement parks (like Safari World). Each neighbourhood has its own distinct character, but Hua Mak and Bang Kapi stand out as lively areas with many students from the universities.

Around Bangkok are the provinces of Nakhon Pathom to the west, Nonthaburi to the northwest, Pathum Thani to the north, Chachoengsao to the east, Samut Prakan to the southeast and Samut Sakhon to the southwest.

Thai hoteliers accuse TUI of “Unfair Behavior”

Thailand’s tourism industry is arguing with TUI of taking advantage of the corona crisis at the expense of small Hotels.

The last vacationers that traveled with TUI Travel Group in Thailand earlier this year have long been back home but invoices from those hotels are still largely unpaid. Now there is controversy over the question of when the German-based group will pay the outstanding bills.

TUI is one of the most important business partners for the Thai hotel industry but now hoteliers accuse the company of taking advantage of the corona crisis and they warn that the behavior of the German company could drive them to ruin.

Industry associations estimate that TUI owes the Thai hotels two billion Baht which is equivalent to around 58 million Euros. The main focus is on services for Tui guests that were provided before Thailand imposed emergency law at the end of March due to the pandemic and closed its borders for foreign visitors.

A letter that TUI has sent to his contractors is now arousing the anger of the Thai people and according to the Thai tourism industry, the group is asking hoteliers to accept new payment terms. Those who agree should receive 25 percent of the outstanding amounts within ten days with the rest to follow once Thailand toutism industry starts up again.

When TUI guests can travel back to the country is unclear but for the Thai TUI partners believe that the uncertainty about when they will get their money is unacceptable.

“We are doing our best to keep as many jobs as possible,” said Bhummikitti Ruktaengam, president of the local tourism association on the holiday island of Phuket, however the conditions proposed by TUI are existential for individual companies. “Getting just 25 percent and not even having a clear schedule for the rest of the money is extremely difficult for everyone,” he noted as Thai hoteliers also have to pay their bills.

Bhummikitti cites the enormous importance that TUI has for many hotels in Thailand. “In some businesses, 90 percent of guests come through TUI,” he says.

In total, the group lists almost 2000 hotels in Thailand on its website.

Most of the businesses he knows in Phuket are refusing to accept the terms proposed by the world’s largest travel company, Bhummikitti says and TUI is trying to take advantage of the crisis at the expense of smaller companies.

Together with the heads of eleven other Thai tourism associations, he sent a protest letter to TUI’s CEO Fritz Joussen on Wednesday and TUI Travel Group is already late with its payments by 30 to 150 days that has been distributed to several Media groups in Germany..

TUI said on request that they had long-standing and good relationships with partners in the holiday areas, “who remain intact even in this challenging situation”. For the winter season that ended in March, the company paid almost 80 percent of all payments due by the end of the month, a spokesman said.

However, this number relates to the Group’s global commitments and the company did not want to comment on the concrete plans for Thailand. “We are currently working with the hotel partners involved to agree on a payment plan for the remaining amount,” it was reported.

However, those affected in Thailand accuse the group of not being ready for real negotiations. “We would very much like to talk to TUI about this,” says tourism representative Bhummikitti, who presented TUI with his colleagues a compromise offer.

This means that the group will pay half of the debt by the end of the month and the rest by the end of October. The Germans have largely stopped the communications, Bhummikitti complains. “Communication with TUI is largely like a one-way street.”

The tourism associations are now calling on politicians for help. They also wrote to Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha this week, asking for support in the conflict. “We tried several times to negotiate with TUI and were unsuccessful,” it said in the letter, which was also addressed to the German-Thai Chamber of Commerce.

Thai Tourism providers are getting exploited by TUI and face serious existential financial problems, the associations added and are now demanding that the Thai government refer the matter to the German Federal government in Berlin to put pressure on the matter as the German state issued a loan of 1.8 billion Euros to TUI during the corona crisis.

Bhummikitti and his colleagues are also worried that other large travel companies could imitate TUI business model, but fortunately so far, this has not been the case.

Bhummikitti: “So far only TUI has behaved like this.”

Saraburi (สระบุรี) is a city in the Chao Phraya Basin region of Thailand.

Understand

Saraburi has been an important city since ancient times. It is assumed to have been established c.1549 during the reign of King Maha Chakkraphat of the Kingdom of Ayutthaya. It is assumed that the king had ordered the merging of some parts of Lopburi and Nakhon Nayok together to set up Saraburi Province with the aim of being a centre for mobilising citizenry in times of war. Therefore, from the Ayutthaya period, the story of Saraburi has usually related to battles and wars. As for the origin of the word “Saraburi”, it is assumed that due to its location near a swamp called “Bueng Nong Ngong”, when the town was established a combination of “sa” (a swamp) and “buri” (a town), it was suggested and the town was named “Saraburi”.
