BANGKOK (Xinhua): Thailand will carry out a tourist project called the Medical and Wellness Resort of the World for visiting foreigners, Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Governor Yuthasak Supasorn said.

The Medical and Wellness Resort of the World project will welcome foreigners under the so-called Travel Bubble campaign, which is yet to be launched between Thailand and several other countries including China, Japan and South Korea.

They may come to Thailand to undergo medical treatments for illnesses, which will be entirely irrelevant to Covid-19, or to restore their health and wellness, Yuthasak said.

Under the Travel Bubble campaign, foreign tourists will not undergo a 14-day quarantine upon arrival though they will have to carry a medical certificate to be issued in their home country within the last 72 hours to assure they not be infected with the coronavirus.

The TAT governor said the Medical and Wellness Resort of the World project will be initially located in the famous beach resort cities of Phuket, Krabi and Hua Hin where medical facilities and rehabilitation centres are readily prepared.

Apart from such medical visitors, Thailand plans to welcome foreign businesspersons or investors, who may spend business trips in the country only for a short period of time without the need for mandatory quarantine. - Xinhua
