Thailand Travel Update: Army Orders Phuket to Party On


Thailand Travel Update: authorities have lifted the overnight curfew completely in Phuket and in other resort areas in Thailand, including Koh Samui, Hua Hin and Pattaya.

The recent events in Bangkok have had very little effect on daily life here in Phuket and in most of the rest of Thailand. There’s no more curfew in Phuket and many other parts of Thailand that are popular with tourists, so you can once again stay out all night if you want to. The authorities say they’re keen to keep the tourist areas calm, safe and fun for visitors.

As of Saturday June 7, there is no curfew in the following regions of Thailand:

  • Phuket province
  • Krabi province
  • Phang Nga province
  • Hua Hin district (Prachuap Khiri Khan province)
  • Cha-Am district (Phetchaburi province)
  • Pattaya district (Chonburi province)
  • Koh Samui district (Surat Thani province)

Bangkok and other parts of Thailand not listed above are still under a curfew from 12am to 4am each morning. All Thailand’s airports remain open, and travel to and from the airport is exempt from the curfew. Most travel and tourist services are unaffected. If you do get stopped by the authorities at any time, stay calm and follow instructions. Please remember that travelers in Thailand should carry their passport at all times.

Here at Thanyapura Phuket we’re open as usual and moving ahead: we’ve just been named the Top Tennis Resort in Asia in a global survey, and we’re looking forward to our Sport Performance Camps in June and July, our Sport Excel Camps in July and August, and our Triathlon Super Camp in August. Move Out!
