Here is a look at the top NATIONAL stories, chosen by our Pattaya News/TPN National team, from last week, Monday, December 26th, 2022, to Sunday, January 1st, 2023. They are not in any particular level of importance but are listed in the order of date of publication.
Let’s get started and see what the top stories were!
- No more mandatory quarantine. No more restrictions on flights. A negative testing result 48 hours before the trip is the only Covid requirement to travel to China as of January 8th.
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has revised its target for international tourists in 2023, aiming to attract 25 million instead of the previously planned 20 million, after China announced an end to Covid-induced border closures.
Chinese should start returning next week to Thailand.
Mr. Ward opened the train’s door to take a better photo but he slipped and fell down from the train which is about eight meters high from the ground.
Search and rescue efforts are underway.
Poipet is very close to the Thai border and is very popular with Thai gamblers as gambling is illegal in Thailand and strongly enforced. Many of the employees at the casino were also Thai, said relevant officials and rescue workers.
For tourism safety during the work, the Loh Samah Bay and the Maya Bay will be temporarily closed to tourism for two days from January 15th to January 16th, 2023.
And, that is all for this week. Thank you as always for reading the Pattaya News/TPN News!
