Actor Russell Crowe promotes ‘Phuket Sandbox’, Bangkok’s electrical wiring
Hollywood actor Russell Crowe has been in Thailand to shoot a Vietnam War era movie called “The Greatest Beer Run Ever” and is now posting pictures on the streets of Bangkok after entering the Kingdom through the “Phuket Sandbox” scheme.
The New Zealander told of his experience during the 14-day quarantine, explaining to his followers that, if they are fully vaccinated, they can fly to Phuket to roam the islands freely and added that Thais are friendly and the food is amazing. He also encouraged others to travel to Thailand now that there is a firm date for the reopening of borders.
Home from night shoot.
Let me clarify Sandbox Quarantine in Thailand. If you are double vaccinated you can fly into Phuket and do your quarantine time of 14 days and 4 Covid tests confined to the island, not a room, the island.
After 14 days, you can travel elsewhere in Thailand.
