1. Welcome to Thailand Vapers, an English language forum for members in Thailand and the rest of Asia to talk about vaping.
    Commonly referred to as e-cigarettes, vaping is really about the use of personal vaporizers (mods) and atomizers (tanks, clearos, RBAs, RDAs, RTAs) filled with e-liquid.

    So looking into a possible holiday with the family to Thailand in October but with all this Covid stuff it's a little of a worry.
    At the moment it's a 14 day quarantine for international arrivals, but what do you guys think it will be like by October? Will this have gone by then and it's just the usual arrive and get on with what you want to or not?

    I know it's a bit like who knows the future and if it all kicked off again with further outbreaks who knows...
    Just don't know if to book or just sack 2020 off as a bad idea and wait till next year, but as it's been nigh on 3 years since my last visit I really wanted to get back this year....

    I would wait to book until after 1 July to see what the entry requirements are then. If you buy tickets, make sure they’re refundable and changeable. I’d avoid TG given their current financial troubles.

    At the moment, the only expats allowed to enter are those with work permits (Thai nationals are also allowed, of course). They have to contact the Thai Embassy wherever they are and get approval to enter (which comes from the TH Foreign Ministry IIRC), provide a fit-to-fly medical certificate and prove that they have THB 3 million in health insurance that specifically covers COVID-19. Upon arrival, they must go through a 14-day quarantine period in government-specified hotels but at their own expense.


    “Richard Barrow in Thailand” on FB has the best information at the moment.

    I was toying with the idea of returning then. **** self-isolation though. I won't go if that's the case.
    First I'll fly my daughter to the UK from Sweden (hopefully in July). If that goes OK I'll pop back for a few weeks before the end of the year.

    Thanks for that, I thought about October too as it's half term for schools over here, that's if they are even back by then, but that looks like a no go then.
    What a waste of 2020 this lot is, i was really looking forward to heading back this year too...looks like next year then.
    Guess it's just a few days away camping in the UK this year, or i might do something i've never done before and head to Spain or something for a cheap holiday by the sea if there's no restrictions there....

    Apart from the Covid situation,I suppose the legal attitude to vaping still prevails? The enlightened approach, haha.
    Safer to smoke weed than vape ( not that I do the former anymore!)
