The Coronavirus pandemic has brought the world to a grinding halt. Lockdowns around the world have virtually eliminated all but the most essential travel within cities and countries. International travel has been shelved indefinitely. At this juncture when travel is being seen as an activity that endangers individuals and communities, the tourism industry--destinations, tour operators, hotels, and the cross-section of people employed in the sector--has been virtually decimated. In this first episode of The Future Series we focus on what lies ahead for the travel and tourism industry with a special focus on Thailand.
