Because of the corona virus, tourism has been restricted worldwide. Thailand has been keeping its borders closed to international tourists for months. The situation changes daily. An overview is constantly updated here.

A fanny pack or an easily accessible bag in your hand luggage for your wallet, passport and plane tickets / handbag because you often have to take them out.
Take enough cash with you if:
The train ticket to the airport will be lost.
Short taxi ride is necessary.
Money for food and drink on the trip.
Excess baggage must be paid (too much weight)
Money for 2-3 days if the bank card should not work in Thailand. You can always exchange cash in Thailand.
Bangkok's nightlife is one of the good reasons to visit the capital of Thailand. Tourists and emigrants prefer this city precisely because of the wide range of nightlife. We present the top 3 hotspots to you here.
The corona pandemic has been affecting global life for months. Thailand is not spared from this. [Editor's note: reported and actual cases differ very likely] Despite the low number of infections, the tourism industry including the associated economy comes to an abrupt halt.
Where, how and how much?
In Pattaya City, it is very easy to meet pretty girls that offer their special services. Most busy it is in and around the Walking Street itself. On the other side to the north of the city (15 minutes) the Soi-6 is located. But from the Walking Street from to Soi-6 is also everything possible. Pattaya leaves no wish "unsatisfied". [A Soi is a side street.]
Ko Samui is south of Koh Phangan. One of the most popular destinations in Thailand. Much quieter than Bangkok and so how tropical Thailand imagines.
The island is not particularly large. Within one afternoon you could circumnavigate Ko Samui nearly even with the scooter. This is what makes these islands so interesting. It comes down to a feeling of tropical island paradise.
You are now in Pattaya. In your hotel you go to take a shower first. Iam sure because it will be hot outside, as it is always. Then pull on your shorts and a pair of flip-flops or some other shoes. A shirt and of course your wallet. The plan is for a coffee, going to the beach and visit a shopping mall. But that's not why you're in Pattaya. So after your sightseeing..
Tips & highlights for holidays in Thailand - away from mass tourism.
Phuket surprises positively. Bangla Road in Phuket, more precisely on Patong Beach, is world famous. Ballermann and loud music is great for singles. For everyone else, such as couples or families, Patong is not necessarily suitable, nor is it particularly romantic or even family-friendly.
But Phuket is a huge area. The old town of Phuket, Patong Beach and many other areas on the beach offer a wide variety.
Koh Samui is always a good tip for a period of up to 10 days. Quite a few prefer to stay forever. The island is located near the islands of KoTao and KoPhangan. Island hopping is ideal here. There is a good selection of hotels. From hostel to luxury. Tip: It is very quiet here in the off-season.
The countries in Asia are still closed to international tourists. For fear of a new spread, new ideas come from governments on strict conditions. There are already offers on Facebook of expensive health insurance with several hundred euros. These are not serious.
