Is there a curfew in place in Phuket?

Recommended Posts

Sorry to start a new thread but this may get lost in the existing news article.

 

It seems that many tourists are of the belief that there's an ongoing curfew in place in Phuket.

 

Having read the document issued on Wednesday, it appears to me that that was just a one night directive but I've seen Facebook posts from tourists who believe they have to stay in their rooms from 7pm. The number of people on the streets last night seemed to support this.

 

Can someone give definitive answers?

 

Is there a curfew in Phuket?

Does it apply only to tourists?

What hours does it apply to?

 

No speculation, facts only please, ideally with source of information.

Since your request for only answers from those in the know has been ignored, imo there is no curfew.

IMO there is a 'soft' curfew 20.00 - 05.00. Doubt be enforced at this time.

Good. I'm training again for the 4-daagse, and with bang wad not an option want to walk Rawai-kata-nai harn- Rawai tomorrow morning. Less traffic than normal, so should be ok, but still want to start 05.30 or so.

I think the various replies I've received have demonstrated that no one has a clue, probably even the Governor!

 

Thailand has yet to grasp the importance of good communication, as has been seen throughout this crisis.

That's the Phuket one and only until ??. Was only one day. Not clear at all. The nation wide curfew takes precedent .... in my humble opinion. Clear as mud.

 

 

Edit - and was 17.00 - 24.00

While it's all as clear as mud, as far as I can read there is no curfew at this time.

Just read on Twitter (Richard Barrow) that there is now a curfew in place in Phuket. It applies to tourists only and is in effect from 8pm until 3am.

 

Apparently this document tells all but as I can't read Thai I haven't a clue.

 

Where the logic lies in this type of curfew I don't have a clue. It may stop people congregating in public areas but that's still happenoeng on the beaches during the day. Maybe they think the virus spreads easier at night as it allegedly started from bats!
