Thailand Beach Resort - December

Hi - Haven't been on here in ages, and remember there being some great experts here.... Due to Covid, we keep pushing our JAL tickets further into the future. Currently Palm Springs to BKK on December 2 - 24. We'll end the trip in Bangkok with a few days at either the Penn or Anantara Siam (our 2 favorites)... we'd like to spend roughly 15 nights in Krabi, Phuket or other... somewhere along the Andaman Coast. We have never been to this area! Typically we're in Thailand in the summer months and spend time in the North, on Samui and of course Bangkok. Could the group please give some recommendations for 2 - 3 different Andaman coast destinations? For our beach holidays, luxe isn't a requirement.... A/C is a must, and we like "on the beach", but for the rest we're looking for easy / casual accommodations, possibly bungalow, boutique hotels, etc. $150 - $175 range.... Any itinerary suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, -David

It could be argued that Thailand has been plain lucky when it comes to Covid, but they are determined to avoid any second wave.
Even if people are allowed in from the USA at that point, it is likely you will face some pretty draconian restrictions.
Under the travel bubble scheme visitors will be restricted to 1000 per day from chosen/ageeing countires
At present when flights for "ordinary" tourists resume in August, you will need health certification. Also insurance ...the figure appears to be $100k.
You're going to be checked everywhere for body temperature.
COVID-19 screening tests will be mandatory before the visitors leave their countries and upon arriving in Thailand.
You may also find restrictions are imposed on where and how you travel.
Make sure you have a good supply of masks too.
