District chief orders Pattaya wide "entertainment" shutdown on October 26th

The district chief of Bang Lamung has asked the police across four Pattaya districts to ensure that all entertainment venues are shut down for the Royal Cremation on October 26th.

 

In a letter seen by Thaivisa addressed to the police in Pattaya, Nong Prue, Bang Lamung and Huay Yai district chief Naris Niramaiwong suggested that the police carry out a public relations exercise to inform all entertainment venues and related service establishments that they should shut down on that day.

 

The language used in the letter is formal and official and does not mention things like bars, massage, clubs and discos but the message is clear that everything of that nature is expected to be closed.

 

The chief mentions that a flower presenting ceremony will be held that will give the public a chance on that day to join with officials in paying their last respects.

thats the way it always has been - people with nothing to do will spend - probably why they want us off the beach, i know the locals in seaside towns uk love it when it rains - rubbing their greasy hands together

If it is only one day one could argue it is a result. Did I not read parts of Phuket/Bangkok are stopping for 3 days?

Still unclear ! Is EVERY business going to be forced to close on the 16th ? Is a small restaurant considered a "place of entertainment" ?

Do bar owners get a refund of some of the protection money they pay the police to remain open and without harassment?

May be very well possible. 

23rd is Chulalongkorn day which is a National Holiday and probably booze-free. 

In order to enable people from all over Thailand to head for Bangkok for the former King's cremation, a lot of venues will be closed for a few days.

26th.

 

Up in Chiang Mai, I was told by a restaurant owner that they will be open. Pattaya could well be different.

Central is only closing from 3pm. I guess it's OK to be making money as long as it's not "fun".

 

Why would anyone not expect all "entertainment" venues to close on the 26th? They close them for Buddha days.

What is disappointing, is that they did not publish a Thailand wide schedule of closure covering everything months ago, so tourists could decide to go elsewhere if they didn't want to be in the present situation. Waiting till after the FMP crowd turned up to cancel it was not a good move and will be all over social media, resulting in problems for the tourist industry further down the line.
