THAILAND: Yacht quarantine launched in Thailand for tourist


Previously, in January, the country had announced a scheme to allow visitors to spend their quarantine on a golf course.

The government is hoping that the new initiative will bring 1.8 billion baht (£42m , &58m) in yacht tourism revenue .

Announced on Monday , the yacht quarantine program will allow visitors with a negative corona virus test to spend their time on board a yacht.

Having banned foreign tourists in March last year, Thailand has been gradually reopening it’s boarder since October.

Travelers are required to wear a smart wrist band that monitors vital signs including temperature and blood pressure, as well as tracking the wearer’s location via GPS.
