A rainbow for the new normal in Nan province
|Rainbow over the mountains of Doi Phu Kha National Park in Pua, North Thailand|
Yesterday we had a lovely long rain and it cooled down to temperatures under the 30℃. So we had a lovely evening and cool night sleeping. In the meanwhile the Corona Crisis is changing its path, worldwide the numbers of deaths & confirmed cases are going down what gives people the impression that the Corona Virus is beaten or was actually never a real threat. The first I am not sure about and the latter I think is totally bullshit. But that is another story that seems not PC to discuss. So Thailand is also downscaling its COVID19 measures. Although International Flights are still not allowed until 1 July and although all land borders are still closed slowly more and more things are allowed to open. Like hotels and provinces are starting to open again also. As are some domestic airports opening again.
As for Nan province there are still no flights to Nan Airport until 1 July, but the provincial borders are open again for domestic tourists. You will still be checked and people from COVID19 hot-spots will have to go in quarantine for 14 days. The first 60 hotels did open today and more hotels will follow in the next weeks. Hotels need to be registered at TAT to open again. Mind you hotels will have to check temperature of guests and will have to register all information of guests. Unfortunately This Is Thailand and rules are not clear and communicated with all hotels. Or own homestay Non Na Pua is not yet open.
