From November 1st, the ban on the provision of alcoholic beverages at restaurants will be lifted in 4 provinces including Bangkok.
On October 29, a meeting of The Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA), chaired by Prime Minister and Minister of Defense Prayut Chan-O-cha was held.

According to a preliminary report from Khaosod online, it is reported that the Emergency Medical and Public Health Center has announced that the ban of sale and drinking of alcoholic beverages at restaurants will be lifted in the four Blue Zones which are Bangkok, Krabi, Phang Nga and Phuket.

Initially, it was reported that alcoholic beverages will be available at restaurants on December 1, but the ban has been lifted one month ahead of schedule. Many people refrained from eating out because drinking alcohol in restaurants was prohibited, but with this lifting of the ban, many people have resumed eating out, and it is a big economy for restaurants that are in a financial crisis. It is expected to bring about a positive effect.

Bangkok will also begin accepting vaccinated foreign tourists on November 1st without quarantine. The permission to serve alcoholic beverages will be a great advantage for foreign tourists, and it is expected that more foreign tourists will visit Thailand. We hope that this will lead to the revival of the Thai tourism industry, which has been severely damaged.
