According to the report, the most money is spent by tourists between 1 and 3 a.m. Typically, they spend less after 3 a.m. This supports our request for a closing time of 4:00 a.m. Before discussing the new ministerial regulations that would be issued by the Public Health Ministry and the Ministry of Interiors, he noted that the survey findings would be provided to the government. He stated that these groups typically begin dining at 10 p.m. and drinking at 12 a.m., and that the restaurants close shortly after they begin to “enjoy the atmosphere.” The researched regions included popular tourist attractions such as Koh Samui, Phang Nga, and Bangkok’s Khao San Road. Phiphat stated that if the neighborhood rejects the proposal, authorities will consult the neighborhood and resume discussions with the CCSA. He continued, We may be able to offer a specific location where there is no curfew and establishments are permitted to remain open until 4:00 a.m. According to estimations, the policy may raise operator turnover by 23-24%. Yesterday, tourism and sports minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn briefed the media.

According to Phiphat, the 4am closing time would accommodate the lifestyles of tourists visiting Thailand, notably those from the Middle East and Europe. To determine when tourists spend the most money, the Ministry of Tourism and Sports of Thailand polled nightlife establishments. In response to a Thursday survey, more than 70 percent of the businesses on Bangla Road near Patong Beach in Phuket would like to remain open past 2 a.m. Phiphat asserts that a vote will be held on Pattaya’s well-known pedestrian boulevard before the end of this month.
