Thailand: Tourist tax: A solution against overtourism?

Thai tour operators are urging the government to implement a 300 baht tourist tax to combat overtourism. This move takes cues from similar initiatives seen elsewhere. Popular Thai destinations like Phuket, Samui, and Pattaya are nearing saturation. The Federation of Tourism Associations suggests redirecting tourists to lesser-known cities and developing tourism infrastructure there. Funds collected would be reinvested for this purpose.

Thailand: Attention if You’re Flying from Bangkok: Risk of Significant Delays

Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok will be installing a new automatic passport control system to replace the existing one. This change will take place in the passport control area for international departures, Zone 2, located on the west side of the 4th floor of the terminal. Some sections of this area will be closed from May 15, 2024, to June 4, 2024. International passengers are advised to arrive at the airport at least three hours before their scheduled departure time to avoid significant delays.

Authorization in Thailand: Opium and Hallucinogenic Mushrooms: A New Medical Frontier?

The Thai Ministry has officially authorized the use of opium and psilocybin mushrooms, previously classified as Category 5 narcotics, as part of its strategy to become a medical research hub. This decision follows a pilot project aimed at cultivating these substances experimentally to reduce dependence on imported morphine and antidepressants. Psilocybin mushrooms, also known as “magic mushrooms,” show therapeutic potential in treating various psychological disorders, while opium, used for its analgesic properties, could enable Thailand to become its own supplier and potentially export.
