Thailand is getting ready to reopen its doors to foreign visitors later this year, and Phuket is one of those “travel bubbles” that the Kingdom has chosen to welcome tourists for the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Currently, the Kingdom’s authorities are hard at work establishing safety protocols, responses to emergencies, and addressing other concerns that could arise once foreign visitors flock once again to the country. After all, the virus is still a real threat – certain countries have not contained the pandemic as effectively as countries like Thailand and New Zealand did.
The government expects to reopen the country to tourism again in October this year, which means there’s plenty of time for the country to get ready. You can be assured that you are in good hands once the country allows you to spend holidays in select areas like Samui and Phuket.
In the meantime, as part of its preparations, the government has launched the Phuket Great Time project in June 15. This website is where tourists like you should go to as early as now if you’re looking to go back to Thailand again later this year.
What is the Phuket Great Time Project?
Phuket Great Time is an online marketplace populated by 80 of the top establishments in Phuket. Through the website, they can post their deals and promos for products and services that tourists will definitely want to partake of when they return to Thailand.
These include hotels and villas. In here, you can find great deals for accommodation. The idea is that, as early as now, you will want to make a reservation for accommodation as the rates are affordable. The closer you get to your date of arrival, however, the more expensive the rates for accommodation will be.
The website benefits not only tourists, of course. Participants in the tourist industry are also given a chance to aggressively market their offerings without suffering high expenses. This is because establishments and tour operators can register and post listings free of charge – provided that they are registered with the tourism ministry.
In other words, the Phuket Great Time project is the government’s way of driving tourism back to Thailand after a successful containment of the dreaded COVID pandemic while helping existing businesses to continue surviving in these challenging times.
