There are also Expectations that the demand on the Sandbox will increase in the next month after Implementing the Sandbox Extension Model (7+7), which will allow Tourist to move to other Designated Destinations in Thailand after Spending only 7 Nights in Phuket. This Model Should start to be applied starting from Mid of August For extending to: Railay Beach, Phi Phi Island, Koh Ngai, Khao Lak, Koh Yao, Koh Samui, Koh Tao and Koh Phangan.
This will give more freedom for tourists to explore Several Destinations in Thailand during their 14 Nights Stay before being able to move to any other Province.
