Better to be safe than sorry as they say 55. I still don't agree with the tracing system especially in bars, it's private hmm.

Though a lot of restaurants can open, I have seen a lot that have stayed shut. A lot of not just restaurants but bars rely on annual 30 million tourists that visit every year. At a guess, a lot of bars would not reopen until the return of the tourists. Would the small expat community be able to keep the bars afloat? Will the bars have the custom to pay staff? Least alcohol is still available for those that like a tipple. For that we can be thankful.

Just had a tour round the Darkside, Pattaya.  2 restaurants closed days a go were open. A third restaurant that I went in, serving beer in coffee mugs. BJ bar around the corner from me which has had no signs of life since mid March had all the girls outside, eating food.

 

I smell the wind of change......

‘Nice to here there is some life appearing. But the smell is coming off the beach I bet. After all that pollutant flowing into the ocean recently. That which you are smelling, good chance it’s not change 😁 😉

I have a solution for that. Just tattoo one next to the tramp stamp.

I live a few miles from the beach. wasn't pollutant, it was detritus washed out of the storm drains after a big thunderstorm. Happens regularly.

 

You're going to fit in well in this forum.

I think you mixed them a bit, tramp stamps are on the ladies. You could scan for a quick in-and-out and should one of the fellas you're then joined by the hip with get COVID, you'd be the first to know.

You are dealing with an anti-fun government. Stiff and starchy and will do anything to prevent any enjoyment!! Also so anti-alcohol. Who the hell elected them????

They want domestic tourism, but they refuse to open bars or allow you drink at a restaurant.

Looking in from the outside, it is 2200 hours in Oz, freezing cold and I have turned on a heater. I have also just opened another of my $2 a can (40 baht) real Oz (large) beers and reflected on all the news on T Visa. Missus speaks to her extended family in C Mai almost daily - they are all hurting financially but I can't help, as the boss says "there are far too many of them and anyway they are all lazy" - (but the MIL sure aint included, 'cos I sent her 50K baht last week, but that's a secret). Once every ten months - no sooner. Even Thais can keep secrets from their own families. Our farm is just outside a tiny town with two pubs. Both are still shut although they could open if they wanted, but the govt. Covid-19 limit of a maximum ten patrons at a time is useless. Nobody drinks seriously in pubs here anymore - the police breathalyser presence killed that years ago, - it is about meeting friends and having a cheap healthy meal. Covid -19 ? Not a single confirmed case in over a hundred miles (160 kilometres) since we locked down in February. Almost all cases in NSW can be linked to returning overseas travellers, mostly from cruise ships. I pity all my friends in the bar business in LOS - as others have said, it is almost as if a blanket ban on alcohol consumption in LOS has been quietly implemented, by stealth. Although the boss says she will never return to Thailand, I would like to at least visit sometime if flights ever return, as I spent half my life there and still have many friends living there, most being too old, too settled in or just too poor to leave. However, I think the LOS that many of us grew up with and adored for all the wrong reasons, is finished - or at best, changed completely for ever.
