Thai tourism resorts ready for late holiday nights

With the Christmas holiday period on the horizon, Thailand is taking new measures it hopes will boost in-bound tourism numbers.

Thai authorities have allowed extended hours at bars, clubs and other entertainment venues in select tourist areas including in Phuket, Bangkok, Pattaya, Chiang Mai, and Koh Samui.

Even though previous closing hours were widely flouted, venues will now be allowed to stay open for a further two hours until 4am.

The change comes into effect on December 15, in time for the festive season, Travel Mole reports.

It comes on the back of other Thailand tourism measures to lure more travellers, including offering visa-free travel to major markets like China.

The Thailand Finance Ministry is also considering reducing taxes on beverages to increase consumption.
