Usually late in the day, although some finer points are subject to some meeting Monday I heard.

You'd think that there was some democratic process & they were debating pros & cons instead of it being some fella with a load of medals across his chest even though he's not served in any battlefield ever flipping a coin.

the missus says that the thai jungle drums are saying the 14th July which seems random but there again there are Budda days at the start of the month anyway.

Should reopen on 1st July. A friend's Thai son is a manager of a number of bars in Nana, Bangkok and he has been told to report to work on Monday 29th June 2020.

The ultimate approval to open on Wednesday 1st will not come until cabinet meeting on Monday 29th.

I heard that just about all the go go bars  inside  Nana Plaza have opted to stay closed until 1 August.

If they get an 80% reduction in rent for July I don't blame them

Sounds like some well known person from the UK. Old Prince Charlie springs to mind. :smile:

They will decide Monday 29. Because of the Emergency decree which is still in effect the PM has the last word. Sad,but true.

There's no "should reopen" July 1. There's been information about a strong possibility,but the problem is the 22 (maybe more now) requirements they released a few days ago. Requirements that are almost impossible to meet and very unfair compared to already opened restaurants. That's what the government will discuss Monday 29.

There will be an announcement sometime late on Monday after the meeting or maybe even Tuesday to get the latest from the Province. Many people are expecting a big bang ie all bars/ gogo's will open when given the green light, I can assure you that this will not happen. For example take a large gogo on Walking Street. Its operating costs are huge. When you take into account paying full rent, key money, electricity/water fees, agency fees to get girls to work 1k each girl per day upwards for 50 plus girls. To open you need customers and at the moment they will no way be in the volume required to make opening most gogo's viable. A few bars will open and the Thai Nightclub scene which is huge will get going again, but the Farang venues will stay closed in the main until tourists are back in some numbers.

Actually and you may know this already. There are already loads of places in Pattaya/Jomtien open already, not just restaurants. I wont name the venue but I went out with a pal on Tuesday afternoon for a drink, not once was I asked to buy food, in fact the food service was closed. Very busy and was operating in plain view.

I agree. 

 

In the near future we will get to see what establishments reopen, and several months from now, what establishments stay open.
