The first group of 41 South Korean tourists is scheduled to be arriving in Thailand tonight, February 19th, under a golf quarantine campaign, authorized by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT).
They will directly depart from Incheon International Airport at 7:05 PM. (local time) via Korean Air to Suvarnabhumi Airport at 11:20 PM., according to TAT Deputy Director Jiranee Poonnayom.
She stated: “TAT had been working with the Arirang Tourist Agency that is specialized in golf tourism in South Korea to welcome the first group of golf tourists in Thailand. Many South Koreans found the campaign very interesting and applied for the golf quarantine.”
All incoming golfers are planning to stay for at least two months. They will spend their first 14-day quarantine at the Athitaya Golf Course in Nakhon Nayok Province before going to another golf course at the Athitaya Golf Course in Chiang Mai.
It is estimated by the TAT that, during their 2-month stay, Thailand will generate a significant amount of income from the group of tourists and if successful, more groups will be arriving in the near future. For those interested in golf quarantine, one can apply and inquire about the specifics with their local embassy or consulate. The Pattaya News notes that not every country qualifies, especially those considered “high-risk.”
