‘Optimism’ about tourists fleeing cold winter to ‘Russia’s Winter Wonderland’ - Phuket

By The Siberian Times reporter
05 October 2021

Market poised for ‘start of recovery’ after pandemic, but is this justified?

‘Russian outbound tour operators expressed their belief that many of their clients are longing to return to Phuket,’ it was reported.

It is claimed there is a ‘pent up demand’ for Russians to return to Phuket amid a gradual easing of Covid curbs and the recognition of Sputnik V vaccine. 

‘Phuket’s tourism industry can look forward to a stronger high season, as Russian  travellers prepare to swap their cold winter weather for a sun-soaked Sandbox escape,’ boasted Bangkok’s The Nation newspaper.

A webinar was held promoting Phuket to Russians as a post-pandemic destination.

‘Russian outbound tour operators expressed their belief that many of their clients are longing to return to Phuket,’ it was reported.

‘They warned however, that some key factors were still restricting the destination’s full potential.’

These include a lack of direct flights and what are seen as tougher Covid compliance rules for visitors than in other popular tourism destinations.
