Bangkok nightlife set to reopen as decision on restriction easing due today

The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) is expected to announce further easing of restrictions today (Monday).

 

With the situation concerning the virus improving in most parts of the country, the CCSA is likely to approve a re-categorisation of provinces in Thailand, most notably those in the High Controlled or ‘red zone’.

 

The move would see 8 provinces, including Bangkok, Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani, and Samut Prakan downgraded to Controlled Area or ‘orange zone’, which is likely to mean that bars, pubs and restaurants would be allowed to re-open and serve alcohol. 

 

The opening hours of other businesses would also be allowed to be extended, providing  social distancing and screening procedures are put in place. Schools and educational facilities are also likely to be given the green light to re-open.

Elsewhere, the number of provinces listed in the ‘green zone’ are likely to increase from 35 to 54, while the number of provinces in the yellow zone will reduce from 17 to 14. Provinces in the ‘orange zone’ will drop from 20 to 8.

 

Only Samut Sakhon will remain a ‘dark red zone’ and under maximum control.

 

Meanwhile, the  CCSA  is also expected to discuss extending the emergency decree in order to continue to help control the virus outbreak and upcoming rollout of  the vaccine, which is due to begin on Wednesday.

 

The emergency decree is due to expire next Monday but is still needed in order to help contain the outbreak in Samut Sakhon and Pathum Thani, which has recently seen a spike in infections, Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam said over the weekend.

Now all they need to do is allow tourists into the country 🙂 but somehow this seems unlikely too happen when you have a "prime minister" who openly says he doesn't want them 😞

How can they open up the country...?

No-ones been inoculated yet?

Have they lost their minds? Pathum Thani is recording almost as many cases as Samut Sakhon, and some days more! Meanwhile, what has changed in Bangkok since they made it a red zone? It's still recording a steady trickle of cases every day and they've done no mass testing in the areas adjacent to Samut Sakhon and Pathum Thani, so they have no idea what's really going on in the populations in those areas. Get ready for the third wave (or is the the fourth now, I've lost count, lol)!

What ASQ hotels would you recommend within easy walking distance of Nana and Soi Cowboy Cultural Centers?

Soi Cowboy was absolutely dead just prior to the latest shutdown. Never seen less talent. Nana was far busier and had alot of talent. That was quite a surprise. A pleasant one.

Good news !

Next time i will remember to take down a few phone numbers

They may be more inclined to add you on a Line app or FB messenger where you can ask to meet up or if they are available. They may notgive their phone number as they don't want  you calling when they are with  BF or family.

This should be interesting. In the West around 30% have been innoculated but there is still a lockdown, in Thailand the general population haven't been innoculated but they are opening up, obviously the stupid farang need lessons from Thailand.

Why would you want to torture yourself?  Landmark best - you can get a room overlooking the Plaza and Barclay's yourself to sleep
