If you walk around the markets in Pattaya, especially on weekends, people are almost stepping on each other – what makes this better than 2-4 people sitting having a beer or a glass of wine in a controlled area in a restaurant? Or people sitting at an outdoor beer bar that sits no more than a dozen people? We aren’t talking parties or giant nightclubs or concerts with hundreds of people…most bars and restaurants would barely have more than a dozen or so folks in them anyways.
The economy doesn’t need any more regulations that make no sense. What is the meaning of this? Is it to stop Covid-or is it because there are people who have other goals in mind, such as possibly conservative anti-alcohol groups?
What is the meaning of the curfew? Not many people out at night anyway, the spread is more severe at night or what? Look at the local markets, look at the transportations out on the roads – Has everyone gone seriously insane???
