Koh Lanta, located in Krabi province has recently tightened its restriction for Covid. It’s been a week now dining at restaurants is not allowed and a curfew from 10pm-4am.
Thank God Avner and I don’t mind spending time at home and I’ve been enjoying cooking a lot as well.
But I can’t help but feel bad for the restaurant owners here. This island has been extremely quiet. When we did eat out, most of the time we were the only table at the restaurant. I can only imagine the hardship they are going through.
Yesterday, we drove around the island for a bit and noticed the amount of empty resorts and closed restaurants.
Since the pandemic started, I had spent most of my time on Koh Phangan. Due to the amount of expats living there, the impact that I see on Koh Phangan is not as bad as here on Koh Lanta.
For the first time during this pandemic, I feel like I have finally witnessed the impact Covid has brought.
I hope things get better in Thailand and their economy recovers soon.
