The Bangkok Post has reported that the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has prepared plans for Phangnga and Krabi will submit plans to the Centre for Economic Situation Administration today.
Under the Andaman Sandbox, tourists will be able to visit Phangnga and Krabi after spending 7 days in the Phuket Sandbox. After 7 days in the Andaman Sandbox they would then be able to travel along “sealed routes” to Koh Yao, Koh Panyee and Khao Lak.
The Andaman Sandbox is scheduled to begin on 1st August if approved. Once approved TAT will then look at similar schemes for Chiang Mai, Pattaya, Buriram, Bangkok, Phetchaburi and Prachuap Khiri Khan. These would enable Thailand to meet much of its schedule to reopen many areas of the country by October.
