Why everything is closing early and Bangkok nightlife may never be the same

Recommended Posts

Just the police making a new business plan, enforce an existing law and then take the kick backs for the club's and bars that want to open later,simple realy!

Those that have to work the next day !!

If you've gotta get up for work early on a Saturday or Sunday, you shouldn't be going out clubbing. Or you can do what some peeps do, party till the early hours of the day and get 2hrs sleep or no sleep and go to work. Not that I would recommend that, but hey, there are peeps who do that.

It really isnt .

The Army are in charge now and they police the Police

If laws are not enforced , the Police chief will be getting the boot

I think they are taking the "free" out of what was such a free society.

 

Lots of tourists don't arrive until late at night. Getting here from a long flight and bars closing at midnight they might not come again.

 

There is beginning to be too much control here which was the reason lots came here to retire and live.

Not many people I have met get off a " long flight and head straight to a bar. Dont you get "free drinks" on your long flight airline ?

Wish they would shut down the illegal beers bars along Asoke at midnight!  Seems that there are mostly Thais and very few Farang sitting out there to 3-4am, pissing on the sidewalk and screaming to the loud music. Asoke between Sukhumvit and the Pullman smells like a bad Chinese roadside outhouse every morning.

 

Then they hop on their motorcycles that are double parked on Asoke since 1900 and race up and down Asoke while either drunk or high or in most cases both.  Wish they would fnd all night discos to go to.....

Apparently some Thais believe that Bangkok would better if it was more like Singapore.

If Thailand had leaders that believed in helping their country ( as Singapore had Lee Quan Yew)more then filling their pockets and bank accounts then Thailand could be a close second to Singapore ,but that is never going to happen since this country has been based on corruption from the 1930s.You can paint a zebra white but underneath it stills has black stripes.(my quote).

Dont know why this is news anyway ........In australia there are different types of licenses for different types of businesses.

Bar license ( usually close at midnight), late license ( usually close at 3am), nightclub license ( usually close at 5am).

License fees increase substantially the later you close................but these days very few legal 24hr licenses.

 

general closing time is 3am, with a few exceptions for venues that pay a VERY SUBSTANTIAL licensing fee to stay open later.

So Thailand decides to enforce a similar law...and people "scream blue murder".

 

as others have said ...if the law were strictly enforced it would just mean starting and finishing earlier ....AND still being able to go to work the next day without a hangover.....or other substances still in your system.

So why wasn't this law enforced in 2004, 13 years ago.

 

Surely there should be some in active posts arising from this.
