Nightlife in Phuket picks up after army lifts curfew


PHUKET 4June 2014  — Entertainment businesses in Phuket have reported a huge increase in revenue right after the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) lifted the curfew. 

Phuket has reportedly been bustling again with nightlife activities. Tourists have been seen venturing out at night as usual, after the curfew has been lifted in the famous tourist own. Entertainment venues have reportedly raked in much more income than they did during the period the curfew was imposed.

A Pa Tong entertainment venue owner, Preechawuthi Keesin, said he was very thankful to the army for finally lifting the curfew, as nighttime businesses have been hard-hit after tourists were not allowed to venture out at night.

Local businesses are still working hand-in-hand with police officers and army officials to maintain peace and order as well as keeping a watchful eye on those with suspicious looks or behavior.
