Foreign Tourists return to Khao San Road in Bangkok
Khao San Road, once known as "Backpacker's Heaven". Bangkok Metropolitan Authority plans to attract a wider range of tourists as well as backpackers, invested $ 1.6 million to turn Khao San Road into an 'International Walking Street' in 2019.

With this investment, Khao San Road was renovated in 2020, but Khao San Road lost foreign tourists due to a pandemic last 2 years and was hit economically.

The bustle of tourists is back on this Khao San Road.

According to Sa-nga Ruangwatthanakul, President of the Khao San Road Business Operators Association, the Khao San Road business is now revitalized and the business is beginning to revive.

The biggest reason why the business of Khao San Road is revitalized is that the Test & Go entry scheme was abolished on May 1. With the abolition of the Test & Go entry scheme, PCR tests are no longer required when entering Thailand, making it easier to enter Thailand and dramatically increasing the number of foreign tourists entering Thailand. As a result, the number of tourists visiting Khao San Road is also increasing.

According to President Sa-nga, water-splashing on Khao San Road was banned during the Songkrang period, but during the Songkrang period, the Khao San Road was still crowded with tourists, and from this period tourists gradually began to return to the Khao San Road. Currently, Khao San Road operators say they totally earn about 5 million baht a day on weekdays and up to 10 million baht a day on weekends. However, the number of tourists is still about 20% before the pandemic.

The Test & Go entry scheme was abolished on May 1st, but pre-registration for Thailand Pass is still required. Meanwhile, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Health Anutin Charnvirakul has instructed relevant ministries to prepare to abolish the Thailand Pass on June 1.

President Sa-nga urged the Thai government to launch a tourism promotion campaign to bring more foreign tourists back to Thailand, including the abolition of the Thailand Pass. President Sa-nga also supports the Thai government's move to downgrade the pandemic to an endemic.

It is also reported that Suttipong Juljarern, permanent secretary for the Interior Ministry, has informed the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society of the decision to stop using "MorChana". If "Mor Chana", which has been considered troublesome until now, is abolished, it will be a further benefit to the tourism industry.
