Samut Songkhram Makes Bid for Thai Tourists

When it comes to holiday destinations, Samut Songkhram isn’t the first, or even the fifth, place that comes to mind. But provincial chief Phisit Suasaming wants to change that.

Provincial Administrative Organization Presdient Phisit pointed Monday that Samut Songkhram isn’t far from Bangkok and and is now ready to welcome Thai tourists with attractions that take measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Don Hoi Lot Market is where tourists buy fresh seafood to take home. Currently, there is a wide variety of fresh and processed seafood at affordable prices, Phisit said.

At Phet Samut Worawihan Temple, tourists still gradually arrive to worship holy Buddha images, hoping for family prosperity.

Tourists have to pass through an anti-Covid-19 screening point and are asked to maintain social distancing. A service point for washing hands is provided. There are also posters with a message urging everyone to wear a face mask.
