    From your link..
    “ TPN media notes that the Tourism Minister’s proposal is not a guarantee that these venues will be allowed to open.”

    I also note his suggestion does not include Bangkok. Again from the link ..

    “ Thai Tourism and Sports Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn is planning to officially propose the reopening of entertainment venues, such as bars, nightclubs, karaoke lounges, etc. for foreign tourists in most areas in so-called “Blue Zones”(Business, Leisure, Ultimate Experience) destinations, except Bangkok, at the next CCSA (Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration) general meeting next week.”

    So not much to get exited about yet.

    I imagine you would be more interested in Pattaya after posting about finding a rental here!

    After Soi Twilight was finished and Super A closed I have little desire to go to BKK…..The one bar which is not new which I might still enjoy is Screwboys.

    You just gotta luv it!

    This one single statement in the article tells you everything you need to "not know" about what's going on.: "Thai Tourism and Sports Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn is planning to officially propose......."

    I can't remember the last time I heard any of these Ministers "unofficially propose" something. Can you?

    The one I really love is when they say..."we agree in principle", or, "it will be discussed at the next meeting".

    My daughters contemplating her next trip to Thailand for the first quarter. I told her to wait until the unofficial proposals they are agreeing to in principle become official and are really agreed upon at one of their next official meetings.

    I do. I luv how the rules constantly change. I luv how the requirements for tourists to enter constantly change. I luv how the requirements for retirement visas constantly change. I luv how Thai government web sites consistently don't work (Anyone tried submitting their 90-day address report online recently?). I luv how so many rules and changes make zero sense, at least to me, and end up on my "I Don't Get It" list.

    And I luv how I won't be at all surprised if the rules and announcements in place today change yet again - several times. I will only be surprised if the rules don't change again . . .
