Service hall collapses at Don Muang Airport due to storm
A thunderstorm struck Bangkok on April 17, and the service hall at Don Muang International Airport collapsed. The collapsed hall is a new hall built a year ago and was planned to be used as a meeting place for group tours at Don Muang Airport Terminal 1.
Fortunately, due to the pandemic and low number of travelers. Luckily there was no one in there at the time and no injuries or deaths were reported.
Currently, a team of engineers of Don Muang Airport is investigating the detailed causes of the collapse.
Thailand is undergoing deregulation regarding entry, and the schedule for the future is as follows.
April 22: Further deregulation discussions at a meeting between the Thai government and CCSA
May 1: Replaced PCR test when entering Thailand with ATK test (planned)
June 1: All entery restrictions lifted (planned)
July 1: Endemic Declaration (planned)
If deregulation continues, the number of foreign tourists visiting Thailand is expected to increase sharply. We hope to find out the cause of the collapse of the building at Don Muang Airport and prevent similar accidents when the number of tourists increases.
Thailand Pass, no new application required for rescheduling within one week before and after the scheduled travel date at the time of application
Currently, you need to apply for and register a Thailand Pass before entering Thailand.
With this Thailand Pass, if the schedule is changed after registration, if the change is within 72 hours (within 3 days) before and after, there is no need to apply for a new one, and it was possible to enter Thailand with a QR code of the Thailand Pass obtained on the old schedule.
This rule has been changed, and under the new rule, if the change is within one week before or after, you will be able to enter Thailand with the QR code of the Thailand Pass obtained on the old schedule.
In Thailand, deregulation on entry is currently underway, and from April 1st, PCR tests in the country of departure are no longer required. In addition, a meeting is scheduled between the Thai government and CCSA on April 22, to discuss further deregulation of entry, including the abolition of the Thailand Pass.
In April, the number of foreign tourists visiting Bangkok has increased dramatically. Suvarnabhumi International Airport is also starting to get crowded with foreign tourists. The tourism industry, which is the main industry in Thailand, has been hit hard by the pandemic, but the revival of the Thai tourism industry is just around the corner.

Expanded Jomtien Beach is crowded with tourists during Songkran
Jomtien Beach to the south of Pattaya Peach. Previously the beach was only 5 meters wide, but expansion work was undertaken under the supervision of Marine Department of Thailand, covering 800 meters of Jomtien Beach and beach has been extended to width of more than 50 meters.
Jomtien Beach has been undergoing expansion work for many years, but the expansion work has been slow to proceed due to sand being washed away, but due to the success of the beach expansion work, Marine Department of Thailand has announced on its social media that thousands of tourists have visited Jomtien Beach during the Songkran holiday.
Jomtien Beach will eventually be expanded over 3.5 kilometers and will be completed by 2023 next year.
