You must have noticed it before? one country shuts down something, then another country does the same, it's not just a coincidence the same dates are used. They are trying to have a coordinated response to the virus where possible, probably guided\bullied by WHO. Why would say Thailand and UK both choose 15 June to open bars?

In France bars are open since the 2 june

even with 30 000 deaths in 2 months because of the virus (Still 13 deaths yesterday)

I see it as incorrect, relaxation of controls should be based on the prevailing situation in country.... Thailand and the UK are far apart. I do see the UK idiotically copying Thai controls some months later... ie too late, thinking of mask wearing and quarantining arrivals into the country specifically here.

Personally I wonder whether bars and pubs will be liberated on June 15th in Thailand, I suspect restaurants will get permission for limited alcohol service, but bars, GGBs, Discos etc need more thought and a tight rein is held here.

Everything, except their boarders, has been open for a few weeks now in Vietnam. 

 

330 cases, 0 deaths.  It's one of the most successful countries to handle the virus.

Suddenly it is not looking good for bars opening on the 15th.

 

Translated from a PBS news item:

 

Draft plan of relaxations of #COVID19 restrictions in "phase 4" (potentially on June 15)

- International schools can reopen
- Restaurants, food courts, hotel can serve alcohol
- Pubs, bars, karaoke venues are still NOT allowed to serve alcohol
- daycare facilities (e.g. kindergarten) can reopen
- events (incl. sports), conferences, concerts can take place (but with safe distancing)
- spas, onsen, "saunas", herbal compressions can offer services again (with safe distancing)
- theme parks, playgrounds, public swimming pools can reopen 
- all sports, competitions w/o spectators
All these measures and points for "phase 4" are still part of a DRAFT PLAN, final decisions will be on FRIDAY - so as of now, nothing is official yet.

I think there would be a massive rebellion if that happened and understandable too

Not my experience.

in fact I don't know one single foreign resident that enjoys it, many even go to extreme measures to avoid it by getting out of Thailand over songkran 

The biggest Songkran whingers are those that never experience it, or hide themselves away from it.

The fact is goes on for almost 7 days is absolute torture  

Sorry to let you know but it has been 10-11 days the last few years.

 

But mostly just daytime in a few spots around town that can easily be avoided by some pre-planning.

pleasure to throw buckets of ice water to passers-by
