across the globe have been well underway over the last several months and more countries have been reopening their borders
including Phuket, Thailand's largest island
. Following this, Hua Hin, another popular beach getaway in Thailand, has just announced that it will be opening its borders to vaccinated travellers in October 2021! Here's what we know so far ?
According to Bangkok Post
, currently only 8% of the population has been vaccinated. Part of the island's plans to prepare for Hua Hin's reopening for vaccinated travellers is for 100% of tourism and service industry employees to be fully vaccinated together with 70% of the general public.
As of July 2021, the local government has ordered 50,000 Sinopharm vaccines to speed up vaccine rollouts with hopes to reach the inoculation goal by its reopening date of October 1.
