TOURISM: Effective as of last night (June 6), Thailand's curfew was lifted in the provinces of Krabi and Phang-nga, as well as the districts of Hua Hin (in Prachuap Khiri Khan) and Cha-am (in Phetchaburi), bringing the number of key Thai tourist destinations with an indefinite curfew exemption to seven.

The curfew, which was initially imposed on May 22 following the implimentation of Martial Law nationwide, was subsequently lifted in Phuket, Pattaya and Ko Samui on June 3 (original story here).

The latest announcement of four more curfew exemptions follows an announcement by the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) yesterday afternoon granting a curfew exemption for this month’s all-night full moon parties on Ko Phangan, which is scheduled from June 9-13.

This month’s full moon is on June 12, but the all-night parties on Ko Phangan are usually held on the days before and after a full moon, and so the curfew exemption covers a period of five (5) days.

Mr Thawatchai Arunyik, TAT Governor said, “This curfew exemption for Ko Phangan’s Full Moon Party is not only great news for the tourists who come from all over the world to experience this unique gathering, but also for local tourism operators and hotels.

“This latest development announced by the NCPO should help reassure everyone coming to this famous party that they will have a safe and memorable time.”

All other destinations and locales throughout Thailand – including Chiang Mai, Haad Yai and the capital Bangkok – remain under curfew from midnight to 4am.  

In a press release, the TAT Governor said, “As a matter of fact, this current curfew from midnight to 4am is when most people are normally in the comfort of their accommodation. And so, it has hardly stopped any visitors to Thailand from enjoying their days in the sun and taking in the sights of the temples, mountains and beaches in any tourist destinations throughout Thailand.”
