Andaman Sandbox

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) stated that Phang Nga and Krabi provinces are preparing the “Andaman Sandbox” scheme scheduled to launch on 1 August 2021 to welcome foreign tourists back after Phuket started its sandbox model on 1 July, while the ‘Samui Plus’ model was officially launched on 15 July.

TAT governor Yuthasak Supasorn said the proposal for the Andaman Sandbox scheme was submitted to the Centre for Economic Situation Administration for further consideration. If the scheme goes according to plan, Phang Nga and Krabi provinces, which lie along the Andaman coastline, will be the next to reopen to foreign tourists.

Mr Yuthasak revealed that TAT has planned to propose similar schemes for Chiang Mai, Pattaya, Buri Ram, Bangkok, Phetchaburi and Prachuap Khiri Khan for an October reopening.
