Our flight got cancelled with Thai Airways ( Again!) , at the same time Phuket just unlock down the city on February 1, 2021…then the beach we love is waiting so we flew there and happy with our decision!
Yes, it’s devastating when you dont see much tourist, less vendors sell ting things, quite at night due to curfew still on going BUT the nature and the peaceful beautiful beach is waiting for you there.
We stay in Four points by Sheraton Hotel front of Patong beach next to Graceland Hotel. The hotel was newly builded after Covid situation on last 2020 end and its now open again.
We choose pool access because i was thought in case if the beach close due to situation, we still have pool access for swimming (Well, you can’t swim in ASQ hotel anyway ^^) or if the pool closing down, you still can walk to beach front of hotel 🙂
So here we go PATONG BEACH! Thank you for make us feel home away from home
We will back to PHUKET for sure! Stay safe and Stay Healthy!
Not regret staying here. Service be excellent and Super Star of each meal. We salut all people who work here and Thank you for taking care of us.

Above are standard of what I received from the hotel before booking, some hotel have similar rules but the mandatory rules is same such as Covid test, or in case you got positive during stay, insurance coverage need to be check before you enter Thailand. Just in case.
Good Luck and Always remember why you here. ASQ in hotel is not easy so prepare and make your daily routine busy.
During Pandemic, we had cancelled our travel plan in several destination, including Thailand on last February. In that’s time Covid-19 virus just started. So to be safe, we just stay where we are and that’s was in the Philippines.
Time pass by, we heard the news, the lockdown in Metro Manila starting hard from March which was ECQ ( Enhance Community Quarantine) until December 1, the city is now under GCQ (General Community Quarantine)
So for me, I am from Thailand and of course its time for me to go home when Philippines getting better in somehow and the repatriated flight from Thailand was started from October. But then it will take time and take cue and plan weather I will go home alone or with my husband.
Finally, I’ve learn the rules of all arrival passenger to Thailand must quarantine 15 days (Day arrived consider day ZERO) so better quarantine together, then decision take him with me is good idea 🙂
To start of document. We applied Non-O Immigrant visa since we married legally from Philippines ( We dont have married cert yet in Thailand) but at least you have legal document to support.
Non-O Visa process take almost a month since the Royal Thai Embassy busy for both Repatriated flight and Several Visa to Thailand after Thailand open country. I waiting for December flight and I found 1st commercial flight from Philippines Airline and we were so happy.
Aside from that’s Covid-19 insurance is needed. In summary here what you need when you travel to Thailand in whatever visa you may hold, here our timeline
Oct 20 – Submit Non O visa Nov 10 – Released Visa, Reserve ASQ (Alternative State Quarantine Hotel) Nov 18 – Submit for COE Nov 28 – Drive tru RT PCR test Nasal and throat Nov 30 – Covid-19 Result Dec 1 – Am Get F2F from Baranagay Clinic – Pm Get COE for Embassy and download T8 form Dec 2 – Fly PR730✅ [1st Commercial flight]
For me its take time, all you need is plan and arrange document ready.
Once arrived at the airport just follow the system there Airport Personal will assist to verify document and temperature before let you walk through immigration which is they already have your name list with free SIM card there.
Welcome to Thailand!
Approximately from arrival to pick up area took 30-40 mins depend how many people of your flight, but they will release passenger batch of 10.
I wish you all stay safe. Stay positive and respect the rules. Always remember, why you here.
Free Fit to Fly Certificate just present your Barangay ID or Baragay Certificate at your Baragay Clinic
ต้องมีผลตรวจโควิทเป็นลบ ก่อนขึ้นเครื่อง 72 ชม.
Required for Outbound to Thailand for Negative of RT-PCR test released 72 hr prior departure. Location Makati Medical Center (8,000Peso in that’s time but now the price maybe drop due to government price cap. Please verify price again each time for the test)
It was on my birthday and we were so busy during December, thought we didn’t make it on time. Plus, my hubby is Filipino so visa applied. But yeah, he got it on time!!!

So did advance booking Milford Sound with Real Journey. The Trip included pickup – drop off to/from hotel, with coffee and tea on ferry during sailing to Milford.
Bus pick up from Hotel exactly at 7am ( bring your own snack and box lunch if you like)
The first stop at Gas Station at TAKAHO, where you can have your own refreshment with minis top and use of comfort room can be found here.
Then the bus stop and fantastic view where you can experience the fog touch the cloud and it near by mountain mirror.
So there is slightly traffic when about to goin tunnel because of heavy snow and slippery road. Signal has been warn and all driver slickly follow the sign. If you drive yourself, please always check weather and Milford sound is far, so you have to manage your time. – Drive Safe!
