Koh Tao luring back tourists with 50-70% discounts
Thai tourists and foreign residents have flocked to the idyllic island of Koh Tao in Surat Thani province this week following phase 4 of lockdown easing and the lifting of curfew.
One tourism operator on the island said that local tourist businesses have launched heavy promotional campaigns to draw visitors back. Some operators are offering discounts of 50-70 per cent on packages combining accommodation, food and diving activities. The packages are valid until the end of this year.
The authorities have enforced strict screening at the island’s piers to protect against the spread of Covid-19.
