Way too sensible. But they've no idea how many toes they're stepping on - expect sideways posts soonest.

Recently TAT's obsession has been to up the number of quality tourists. How many of these will be out after 2am, risking their jewelry being snatched ?

If this is the answer, then why are bookings in Pattaya, where you can today drink 24/7 down so dramatically ?
Chinese and Indians do not go to bars in general. Koreans like early nights, and Farang are an endangered species who cannot make up the numbers.
Better idea, that will never be allowed. Legalise gambling and do the following :-
1.  Sell licences to the big hotel groups who can then build casinos on the back of their properties. Limit the number and sell by auction.
2.  Tax the earnings like hell.
3.  Like Singapaore, charge locals admission fees to counter the " he spent our savings " arguement.

4.  Crack down with an iron fist the huge number of existing back street dens, seizing all assets on the premises.

5.  Stand by for a Chinese invasion like they now have in Sihanoukville, but limit the number of establishments.

Yeeaahh! Let the Ping Pong balls fly and bananas come out of nowhere all night long. 

 

    Great decision, but where do you get the customers from if you make the country less attractive day by day?

Isn't that what most are already doing? Sleeping on or under the customers.
