Bangkok, therefore, should also prepare to relax this measure as soon as possible. However, the matter should be put into a discussion with relevant experts from the Ministry of Public Health and Bangkok’s Health Department.
Moreover, the Governor also mentioned entrepreneurs’ and nightlife tourists’ request of extending entertainment businesses’ legal opening hours from 12:00 AM. to 2:00 AM. He said that the request was also interesting and would prepare to consult about the matter with relevant agencies urgently.
He added that apart from the entertainment venues, other establishments and public parks must have their opening hours extended as well to cover the needs of the people.
