Bangkok, 28 June, 2020 – The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), in cooperation with Ko Samui’s public and private partners, is inviting Thai travellers to visit Ko Samui now that the COVID-19 situation has improved and the government is considering the fifth phase of easing the lockdown from 1 July, 2020.
Tourism businesses on Ko Samui are also reopening from July 2020, onwards, albeit under a new normal – both the operators and the tourists are required to observe strict safety and health routines to continue to be a part of the nationwide effort to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 infections.
