Tourism minister wants to extend pub opening hours

Recommended Posts

I wonder why the Chinese prefer to visit countries like Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau ?

It must be because it's cheaper to visit these places instead of Thailand (according to the expert Thai authorities ..)

It could have nothing to do with language would it ?

So much easier to go on holidays where you can understand whats being said and say what you want in your own language.

Just like when i take me 'ols from Birming'm and go to Blackpool 'n all.

It is the bar smoking ban that is chasing away the Chinese, Japanese, French and the rest of the heavy smokers.  They can't even step out the door an have a smoke.  I am not a smoker, but I certainly know the dynamic.  A smoker that is drinking wants a smoke.  What's wrong with these people.  They always say they are not stupid, but . . .

I am a drinker and my friends and I do not wanter to be near smokers. Most civilised countries have banned smoking, partly due to legal action taken by service staff owing to health issues. Smokers are similar to drunk drivers in that they are selfish and recklessly endanger the well being of other people. Once a smoking ban is introduced such as on aircraft in airports, in pubs ect it is amazing how quickly people get used to it. Who actually believes that aircraft or restaurants are a better environment when filled with stale cigarette smoke?

"Who really needs to drink between  2 am and 4 am?"

Anyone who wants to, if you ask me.
 

totally agree,i,m not an alcoholic,it,s the principle of being told what to do when i,m on holiday,besides perhaps the minister of sport is barking up the wrong tree if he thinks thats the reason for the demise of los,s demise in tourism,just have a look at the exchange rates,a lot of my mates [myself included] who used to spend a couple of months in thailand annually are looking elsewhere,thailand isn,t good value any more.will be out for 4 weeks in feb,2 weeks will be spent in vietnam.

Pattaya is already 4am or even sun rise 🌻

Thank god! Last year as I was leaving a bar in Pats  at 4am I joined a group of Thais who were just arriving on WS and we went on to a club. We left the club as the sun was rising and went on to a big beer bar with pool tables. I left a out 7am. Just like the old days. As I remember in Bangkok the decline started before the military coup but in fact started under Taksin.

desperate times call for desperate measures from the minister of sports. we all know that alcohol improves sports performance. maybe engage brain before mouth next time.

drinking is a sport and so is chasing bar girls.....medals are awarded for who can drink the most and who can bed the most bar girls !!!

As typical human beings we don't like to be told what to do or not do, education is the answer.

Then go to a non-smoking bar?

 

Freedom of choice, ever heard of?

 

Should be up to the owner to decide which clientele he wants and no one else, business freedom.

isn,t smoking in bars illegal in thailand?

There is something to be said for having a selection of bars offering non smoking and smoking environments to enable people to choose. But you still have issues of insurance, fire hazards to the health and safety of staff. After 10 ten days of eating in a sports bar in China I came back to Thailand coughing yellow phlegm and had bronchitis. I felt so sorry for the staff.

What a pantload. Maybe 24 hour pubs so tourists can drink while jetlagged. 2 hours won't make a damn bit of difference.

 

Alcohol on Thai holidays...THAT will increase revenue.

They keep saying banning smoking in Bars in the U.K. has killed the industry, nope it’s the high alcohol prices.

Banning smoking on flights hasn’t stopped people flying ?

Yep. 

When government start getting involved in sh** like this, they clearly haven't got much else to do.

Smoking is banned in public places bars, restaurants, Fife’s etc in Thailand but like the wearing of crash hats it’s never enforced.

In fact it’s openly encouraged in most Bars as they put ash trays on the table.
