As reported by CNA, Thailand will lift its Covid-19 quarantine requirements for fully-vaccinated travelers coming from 'low-risk countries' that includes Singapore, China, Germany, and United Kingdom among other countries. The list will continue to grow by December 1.
Thailand's Prime Minister, Prayut Chan-o-cha mentioned they are only requiring people coming from low-risk countries to provide a negative result of their RT-PCR test before leaving their country and must take another Covid-19 test upon arriving Thailand. If the result comes out negative, tourists are free to travel different areas with the locals.
Before this, Thailand only waived its quarantine period to fully-vaccinated visitors from 14 days to 7 days. CNBC also stated that tourists must stay in hotels or homestays in Bangkok that have more than 70% vaccinated employees and have met the Safety and Health Administration rules.

Among the places that will open in November are Chiang Mai, Phang Nga, Krabi, Hua Hin, Pattaya, and Cha-Am. Bangkok, however is still in discussion whether to open fully for visitors since it's a high-risk area. Alcohol consumption at eateries will still remain prohibited until further notice in Bangkok.
