Phiphat said he believed that if closing is extended to 4 am, tourists will spend 25 per cent more on eating and drinking.

Yea but what about the Indians .. Trying to get half a dozen to buy more than one Coke during waking hrs is hard enough anyway .. 

and the Russians are usually well caned by that time so the chances of getting a few more out of those is remote ..

The topic is about opening hours, not drink driving.

In my 14 years here, I have always got home after drinking, by taxi or shanks' pony.

good for you for many don't, and if they extend the hours they'll end up with more behind the wheel..

Then put them in jail, but that would need the police to actually do their work.

And that's the main issue thailand has.

Yes, corruption and only partial enforcement of law is thailands main issue - by far.

It took many years to attempt clean up the police forces around the world. Some of the solutions employed by other nations were paying a livable wage, raising educational standards and increasing penalties. That improved police forces in many of countries but if you research it, many western countries are still having a lot of problems even with the advantages they have.   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Police_corruption

Perhaps they could bring Chiang Mai into the fold and stop enforcing midnight closing. Extend it out til 2am to be in line with the rest of Thailand. 

Very true that SammyT....👍

Hey, Hon - Let's do vaca in Thailand this year because there we can drink ourselves until we're totally sh*tfaced in a club until 4 AM. Then we can catch a taxi back to the hotel and have some real fun talking to the driver on the way!

Or we could walk back totally wasted! What do you think?:stoner:

And probably increase drunk driving accidents/deaths by a similar amount, as there is near zero enforcement of drunk driving laws in the wee hours. 

and spend all day in bed therefore not buying anything (aspirins maybe)

And all non-Buddhist tourists may buy beer on 'holy' days.

The stupid licencing laws, defended above by Nan as child protection, are just stupid.  Kids, particularly those in uniform, are easily identified by 7-11 staff.
