Thailand is considering scrapping its mandatory quarantine for vaccinated visitors to its capital Bangkok and other top tourist destinations from October, as it looks to rebuild its coronavirus-battered tourism industry.

Among the 10 provinces planned to welcome vaccinated tourists from October 1 are Pattaya, Phang Nga, Koh Samui, Krabi, and Bangkok, deputy government spokeswoman Traisulee Traisoranakul said on Friday (May 7), according to a Channel NewsAsia report.
