He described the atmosphere as lively, with local tourism businesses continuing to operate normally while enforcing strict COVID Free Setting prevention measures to ensure public safety.

According to a recent report, the number of tourists visiting Thailand through the Phuket Sandbox program has exceeded 445,800 since its launch on July 1, 2021.
