Pubs, bars and nightclubs to make a comeback

The nightlife and television of Thailand may be returning to normal, just in time for the peak tourist season. The vast array of nightly entertainment has been absent since the passing of King Bhumibol Adulyadej as a sign of respect and mourning since October 13th.

The official mourning period was set at 30 days. This has resulted in TV shows being pulled, festivals cancelled, live music absent from bars and most of the country wearing black clothing. This is due to officially end on November 14th.

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha has acknowledged the importance of entertainment to Thailand, stating, “Thailand is a country of tourism”. We are expecting these tourists to be having their usual parties as in most years as this mourning period draws to a close. Officially, the venues that return to normal include nightclubs, pubs and bars. So Phuket will be back to its rowdy self within two weeks time.
