The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) announced on October 22nd that from November 1st, the country’s borders will be accessible to fully vaccinated travellers with no quarantine requirements.

Thailand has been cautious about reopening until now, but following a successful mass vaccination campaign last summer, Phuket opened on July 1st for quarantine-free travel to the island for vaccinated visitors (the so-called ‘Sandbox’). On the 15th of July, the ‘Samui Plus’ program began.
Bhutan maintained strong border controls and a low COVID case rate during the epidemic, and vaccine distribution was a tremendous success. They vaccinated practically the whole population in 16 days and then repeated the process in July with second doses, donating the remainder of their stock to Nepal. We hope the borders will open soon since there is no more spectacular site for an once-in-a-lifetime post-pandemic journey. Bhutan is normally reached through India or Nepal, with at least one layover in each route. Going to Bhutan may soon be
allowed now that India and Nepal are no longer on the Red List.
COVID instances have decreased dramatically in Bali and other regions of Indonesia, such as Java, following a big rise in July. On the 15th of July, Indonesia was regretfully but predictably put to the UK Red List, but was happily withdrawn along with Thailand on the 7th of October. While there is still hope for winter travel to Bali, we believe it will be 2022 before any meaningful travel to Bali or Indonesia as a whole restarts. However, we would anticipate a Phuket Sandbox-style trial program in Bali a little sooner.

For others, it is the nation of wide-open skies and road vacations, with millions of kilometres of roadway crisscrossing the sun-bleached hills of the Great Plains, the lush woods of the Pacific Northwest, and the charming country roads of New England.
