Kathu lays out entertainment zones

PHUKET: Kathu District has become the first district in Phuket to map out entertainment zones to meet the requirements of proposed new legislation that would eventually see entertainment businesses such as bars, discos and karaoke venues restricted to certain areas. Vice-Governor Amnuay Sanguannam told the Gazette that the Kathu plan sees five entertainment zones – three in Patong and one each in Kathu and Kamala. In Patong, the three zones will be as follows: – An area stretching 50 meters to the north and 50 meters to the south of the intersection between Taweewong Rd and Sawasdirak Road. – Both sides of Soi Bangla, including side alleys to 100 meters from the center line of the road. – Rat-U-Thit Road from 130 meters to the south of the Soi Sainamyen intersection to 100 meters to the south of Soi Bangla. In Kathu the entertainment zone would be restricted to Phrabaramee Rd, from the crossroads in front of the District Offices to the start of Patong Hill, and stretching 30 meters out, on either side, from the center of the road. In Kamala the entertainment area would be along the beach road, 30 meters to the north and south of the center of the road. The Vice-Governor said that Phuket Town and Thalang Districts were still under consideration.
