Russell Crowe, a 57-year-old Hollywood actor, posted a series of close-up selfies of himself and several attractions in Phuket on his Twitter account during his staycation from 18-23th September 2021.

The Hollywood actor was one of the first celebrities to share pictures of his visit to Thailand amidst the Covid-19 situation. He also claimed that he was there to shoot a new movie in Bangkok, before taking a slight detour for a vacation in Phuket.

Now you may be curious about what recommendations he posted on Twitter. Let’s take a closer look.

On 11th October 2021, he posted a picture of Phra Phuttha Mingmongkol Eaknakakeeree at Wat Phra Yai (Big Buddha Temple) and a video of a beautiful sunset at Amanpuri Phuket Resort.

These pictures quickly caught the attention of many netizens, with the tweets going viral garnering over a thousand retweets.

We think his captions also helped many of us remember why we absolutely miss travelling to Thailand.

“Let me tell you about Thailand. A favorite destination for many, but not a place I had ever been, outside of 6 or so layovers in Bangkok airport. The Thai govt have this very cool thing in place…”, tweeted the actor.

In addition, the star also shared good news to fully-vaccinated tourists.

In response to questions from his curious fans, Russell Crowe clarified that fully-vaccinated foreign tourists can fly to Thailand for vacation.

However, they are required to stay in a designated SHA+ resort for 14 days before travelling elsewhere in Thailand. 

For those who are wondering if Thailand is reopening for foreign visitors, here’s an update from the government.


Thailand reopens from 1st November 2021


From 1st November 2021, foreign visitors from 5 countries including UK, USA, Germany, China, and Singapore are allowed to enter the Kingdom of Thailand without a 14-day quarantine, according to updated regulations.

Therefore, we have come up with two recommendations for all tourists outside of Thailand.

If you wanna take a selfie with a gigantic Buddha or take a hike at one of our many sprawling nature reserves and beaches – just like Russell Crowe – it may happen sooner than you’d think.

It’s never too early to start packing your bags, and planning your trip right now.
