Phuket Governor ’asks’ tourists to self curfew from 5pm to midnight

Recommended Posts

Written in English by a Thai.

Perhaps that’s why the message doesn’t make sense.

I live in Patong and with everything closed, I've noticed people have been heading to the beach around sunset because there isn't a whole lot more to do. Many were obviously standing way too close together. That's a problem that needs to be solved. 

 

To have a one evening "suggestion" ban beginning at 5 pm that is not announced in English until 6 and the local English online news sites aren't notified and therefore don't report it until around 7 pm shows the level of incompetence that exists here.

Did the non English speaking governor actually say these words or are these words the words of some idiot translator that has put their own words in there?

Makes about as much sense as the 2pm - 5pm ban on alcohol sales!

Thats why I need it to be 5-30 give me chance to get to 7/11 to buy a couple of beers

I remember years ago a manager told me that when posting a notice, you always need to get the important part of the message across in the first sentence using a larger font- and to keep that sentence very short.

 

Then go on to clarify the reasons behind the message afterwards. Otherwise people just won't bother to read all the text if it's not obvious what the point is.

There’s no tense in Thai language. Time has a different meaning to these people, that’s why you’re confused

So, their solution to Covid-19 is to replace Phuket's nightlife with Chiang Mai's 😄

With most of the world going into lockdown Thailand is allowing public gatherings, these tourists will go home and if they carry the virus it will keep getting worse in their countries and spark new outbreaks.

The returning tourists to NZ, have to go into isolation, quarantine, NZ has locked the whole county down.

 

Thailand thinks it is not necessary, they might get a rude warning from WHO very soon.

The most stupid behavior I have ever seen, does the enlightened one not know he must close all gatherings and lock the country down. Seek help from his mates the Chinese who have been controlling the virus to some extent.

Thailand is incubating and transmitting the disease throughout the world. The world is watching.

When will the King make an announcement , soon I hope for the sake of the people.

5pm to midnight to you isn’t the same  as it is to a Thai.

 

Different concept of time

No "asking" , just enforce a 24/7

Individual human arrogance is the only issue with the virus. Kill the arrogance and we will all stand a much better chance. Simple really

Ha ha, yeah. Regarding the concept of time: 'Now' or 'later'.

I'll probably get stick for my sense of humour.

 

I've learnt not to just ask if something will be a long time, but to ask how long will it be. I'm also aware that it's more than likely a number will be plucked from the air to answer my question. Doesn't stop me trying though.
