BANGKOK, November 1st (Bernama): As of Monday, the night curfew will be lifted in Bangkok and three tourist destinations, namely Krabi, Phang-Nga and Phuket under “tourism sandbox areas” or “blue zones” and restaurants will be allowed to serve alcoholic beverages .

Although pubs, bars and entertainment venues will remain closed in these tourist-oriented areas, most restrictions on business and leisure activities will be lifted as the kingdom will welcome fully vaccinated travelers from 46 countries and low risk areas from November 1st.

The spokesman for the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA), Dr. Taweesin Visanuyothin said the CCSA today reduced the number of “maximally and strictly controlled areas” or dark red zones from 23 to seven, namely Chanthaburi, Tak, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Narathiwat, Pattani, Yala and Songkhla.
