Tourist minister should get out more often. In pattaya most clubs are open way past the "closing time" but most bars are empty anyway, so staying open will not attract anymore people. empty is empty

"if closing is extended to 4 am, tourists will spend 25 per cent more on eating and drinking"

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. 

People come on holiday with a budget the bars could stay open 24 hours they would still spend their  budget and only that I remember as being a ex publican they tried it in the UK never worked just killed years of tradition .also where all the quality tourist at 4 am ?

A good idea that would encourage tourism.  Unfortunately, Thailand is only doing things to diminish it, so, this has little chance of succeeding.

Been doing it for years matey

Extending opening hours only means people go out later as has been proved in the U.K.

They need to study economics really and stop trying to invent everything themself as some kind of solo army

24 hour drinking is proven to be the best drinking law as it means you can drink whenever and there is no rush - people have many different forms of occupation and this is proven to work the best

The tourism is way down because they ruined thailand with all this nonsense. They should of gone to a foreign country and been a alien for once and understand how they ruined a good thing

People come here for the nature and weather, the food and easy drinking was a nice benefit but they ruined it with a stupid economic policy and ridiculous laws now everyone goes to vietnam and they are booming what a surprise

Drunks impact everybody when they get behind the wheel. Any moron from another country who comes over here thinking they can break the law because it's Thailand should be deported for life for DUI and if they hurt or kill someone should face attempted murder/murder charges. There has been enough information and tragic strories world wide to justify this and especially here. I saw the other day that they give a medical prior to issuance of OA visa with drug addiction flagged as a possible reason for refusal. I'd like to see liver enzymes function tests included in this medical which can show alcohol abuse. There is no difference between alcohilism and drug addiction except that alcoholism causes way more damage.

How many tourists are driving?

Why not make more and open all bars 23 hours per day, closing at 05:00 AM for one hour the time to clean the floor like it is done in Montreal.  What better way to make a boost in our economy than by extending opening hours?  While we are at it, let's discard Thaksin era of selling alcohol with limited hours in all retail outlets. 

 

This way Thailand will really be a tourist destination with money coming from outside our beautiful country.

Classic. Just another example of the perpetual farang whiners "damned if they do and damned if they don't" response.

 

"They're killing tourism with their alcohol bans!!!"

 

Then...

 

"They're going to kill more people with less alcohol restrictions!!!"

 

Make your bloody minds up willya?!

Whats the point of commenting if you cant have a good moan?

English had huge booming retail economy since the 24 hour drinking and although there is a knife crime problem the actual grief at the kick out time has ended and is a thing of the past so really it was win win (used to live in london)

These clowns are so far out of the circle they have NO idea what is going on.

Pass a directive first that ALL Licenced premises are allowed to sell alcohol until 2 am.

I refer to Chiang Mai where the local mafia make them close at midnight,

And in Hua Hin where often they will not even let them open on many days

Exactly and how easy is it to access a taxi - there is a whole eco system here of bars food and taxis to move us back to hotels it worked beautifully in the past now it is a broken system and its heart breaking to see 

Recession is coming very very soon within this year
