BANGKOK: Thailand was among the first countries in Asia to reopen for foreign arrivals, and it is seeing a slow recovery, including new hotels touting longer stays for individual travellers, Reuters reports.

Thailand expects only 200,000 foreign tourists this year, and five million in 2022. Despite the reopening, some businesses say Covid rules still make some things hard.

"Tourists are not fully confident and still confused with government regulations," said Chitchai Senwong, a restaurant manager in Bangkok, citing a government rule that prohibits alcohol consumption after 9pm.
