Effective today, Thailand has banned all foreigners from entering the country. Thai citizens in other countries are still permitted to return so that may explain the currently scheduled flight tomorrow of Kunming Airlines to Bangkok.
I think it would be prudent to discuss this with the PSB, perhaps before that overstay actually occurs.
Those of us who have been in to the PSB or local police and granted the 60 day overstay still have no idea of what will happen beyond that time, although my wife has heard rumors from her police contacts that the extension will be reviewed depending on conditions that continue to evolve.
Returning from Thailand continues to become less of an issue as it becomes more difficult to get there.
In addition to the previously announced health certificate it appears there is now an additional requirement for insurance.
"Travellers to Thailand have to now show authorities a health certificate, issued no more than 72 hours before travelling, confirming that they have been tested and are free from the virus. They must also present an insurance policy showing minimum coverage for coronavirus of not less than US$100,000."
I was unable to find this new requirement for insurance on the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand website.
Are there still any international flights arriving in Kunming? Many countries around have closed the borders or implemented quarantine on arrival.
Trying to book China Eastern to Bangkok is routed via Shanghai, so quarantine would occur in Shanghai on return.
No results found.
Had my first ever visit to Slice of Heaven last night for a group party. Barbara recognized me as a newcomer and immediately came to welcome me and introduce herself.
While speaking with her at the counter, a server walked past with a pizza for one table. The aroma immediately caught my attention. It was awesome.
Our group shared 4 different pizzas. All were amazing. I think the sauce really makes the difference since it was very flavourful. I also put back to cups of cappuccino. I guess they must have fixed problems noted in other reviews because I found it to be quite good.
If I lived closer I would be a regular here.
After 14 months in Kunming I've finally found a restaurant that knows how to cook a steak! The last time I had a decent steak was a year ago in Chang Sha.
We found My Favor because of the ad here on Go Kunming. I was not disappointed. The restaurant if very much "upscale", sharing the 6th floor of the Brilliant Plaza with other restaurants that it's Chinese, Japanese and Korean equals, so we've found a great place to go for special occasions.
Being non-smokers we really appreciated the separate no smoking room. The decor is quite elegant and the entire place is spotlessly clean (even polished where it should be).
We were given separate menus for food, beverages and deserts. There was enough selection to satisfy anybody but not so overwhelming that you couldn't decide what to have. The price range was also varied, ranging from modest to a lot.
I chose my always favorite beef tenderloin. Although the menu didn't state it, the dish was served with a choice of the five soups that were offered. My wife stuck with the pasta (she's a noodle nut).
The only downside came in the timing. Our soups arrived together, but my wife had finished her main course before mine arrived.
The serving staff did not hover over us but were quickly available when we wanted something, however, we were the only customers so I can't comment on what service might be like at busy times.
Overall I was very satisfied and might make this a place for a once a month treat.
