Thai curfew lifted in three tourist hotspots: Military

BANGKOK - Thailand's junta said on Tuesday that it was ending a curfew in the major tourist resorts of Pattaya, Koh Samui and Phuket imposed after last month's military coup.

The measure will be scrapped "to create a favourable climate for tourism", the military said in a televised announcement.

 

"The rest of the country remains under curfew," it added.

The curfew was initially introduced after the May 22 coup for the whole country for 10:00 pm until 5:00 am, to the dismay of the owners of bars and other late-night businesses.

The junta shortened it to midnight until 4:00 am late last month.
