Thailand is one of the most popular SE Asian countries that is visited by many tourists around the world. Due to lockdown, many countries including Thailand were locked for tourists and because of this the tourism industry of Thailand got affected and had to suffer huge losses.
A year after the lockdown, Thailand is all set to reopen the country for International Tourists starting July, and one of the popular destinations in Thailand, Phuket will reopen to vaccinated tourists starting July 01.
One of the best parts of the reopening is that a tourism group in Thailand is offering hotel rooms here as low as $1 (Approx INR 72). This is a part of the campaign from the Tourism Council of Thailand called One Night, One Dollar and under this plan, hotel rooms will be available at 1 Dollar per night.
These rooms are generally available around 32$ and above per night and as per reports, if this current campaign runs successfully, this will be extended to other tourist destinations such as Koh Samui and Bangkok.
Tourism Authority of Thailand governor, Yuthasak Supasorn said “Phuket will be the pilot destination to reopen in the third quarter to fully vaccinated foreign visitors from low-risk countries under strict rules and regulations.”
