This results in a positive restoration of Thailand’s tourism, especially in the tourist destinations not over 300 kilometers away from Bangkok, such as Hua Hin, Cha-Am, Bangsaen, Pattaya, and Khao Yai. Tourism is one of the most significant tools that will revive the nation’s economy, which is why the Tourism Authority of Thailand has strategized to move forward in restoring tourism in Thailand. We aim to make Thailand one of the first choices of vacation destinations to come to mind for both domestic and international tourists, by supporting all businesses in the tourism industry to be sustainable and help them to help drive the economy forward within the safety restrictions and measures advised by the Ministry of Public Health.
