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!
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!

Just like many countries around the world, 31 December sees a large-scale and popular countdown to the new year, most visibly on the streets of Siam in the centre of Bangkok.
Take the BTSSkytrain to Chitlom Station, Exit and walk directly connected to Central World by a skywalk. Things usually get going at around 6pm, but you might want to arrive early to beat the inevitable crowds to a decent spot.
This is previous year. Looking forward for excited more!
The Sky Bar Rooftop at Lebua offers the most stunning views of the Chao Phraya River. Banyan Tree, Octave Rooftop Lounge & Bar, Above Eleven and Three Sixty are all rooftop bars that offer matchless views, plus great DJ music, much dancing, drinks, fireworks and all the NYE trappings we love, plus the feeling that you’re on top of the world. Partying at one of Thailand’s rooftop bars is one the best things to do in Thailand.
