Phuket is a huge tourist town so this totally makes sense and the Phuket governor is actually looking out for the thousands of tourists there as well. My wife and I have a friend in town from the United States a Thai/American citizen and we are both extremely concerned about her. Not sure if she’s staying here or going home. So I just told her and warned her about what the United States Embassy is saying. That if you’re going go now while you still can as of yesterday that’s what they were saying. I haven’t checked today yet. 
 

The Phuket Governor is just simply politely asking tourists to abide by a curfew at this point so I would listen to him. He’s doing the right thing for Phuket and it’s tourists!! If you’re out at this point in a bar or something now I could maybe understand arresting people but people still gotta make a living. 

It does not make any sense.    There are more local Thais in Phuket than there are tourists.  Curfew all or none

The thinking is that perhaps the governor is hoping people booze early, then fall asleep as there's nothing going on as far as nightlife.  Early to booze, early to bed.

Went for a swim today and people on the beach but they sit orderly with good distance to next person/couple.

On another move they have closed for walking/running safely at King Rama IX park where people are in fresh air, well fresh is maybe not the description but anyway with space to keep distance to next person sweeting out. But on the 10-15 hour crowdy night buses to the provinces you are welcome as long as you have a mask on, where is the logic🙃 closing people indoor do not protect against any virus, behavior do.

Oh man, I love where we live but I’m jealous sometimes I think about moving close to the beach. I don’t think I’d want to deal with immigration down there though. Immigration is easier up here by far and I know I’ve done both Bangkok and here before. I’ve been living here for going on 6 years now. 

The beach is great or not so much the beach for me personally but the ocean. 1-200m meters swimming from shore and its yes simply freedom. :smile:

Not sure this make any more sense because following resident friends in Pattaya, Koh Chang etc.,. restaurants (not bars) is still allowed to be open as long as the management take precautions, i.e. keep guest in distance from each other, clean and disinfect the restaurant and provide both alcohole gel for hand cleansing and hygienic restrooms. Well I guess its another Corona here.....🤔
