All-night opening for Christmas, New Year

PHUKET: The Royal Thai Police announced today that, as in previous years, entertainment venues may stay open from Christmas Eve until 6 am on Christmas Day, and from New Year’s Eve until 6 am on New Year’s Day. Pol Col Paween Pongsirin, Superintendent of Phuket Town Police Station, told the Gazette, “All entertainment venues will be allowed to trade through the night because it’s the festive season.” He then issued a reminder that revelers should take extra care during the festivities. “Normally, everyone is happy during the festive season, but some families lose loved ones through accidents or crime. Warning against drink-driving, and about the dangers of alcohol-fueled fights and thieves on motorcycles, he added, “Every year, many people are injured in traffic accidents and fights, and this worries me. I want to warn everybody to be particularly careful during this season.”
