If the bars mostly close at midnight it is for a number of reasons. Regulations normally dictate if and what should close when. However we are living or holidaying in Thailand where rules and regulations are broken every day and ignored by the authorities. I won't start to list examples as we all know that the list is endless.
If there was a demand and money could be made by staying open later, the bar owners would find a way of "pleasing" the authorities or at least encouraging them to look elsewhere.
For the very few establishments who are able to appropriate the necessary licences and or support the cost is very high and this is reflected in the cost of what we buy. This is economics 101.
For one, although I am a lover of nighttime venues, when the need arises, I am very happy that Hua Hin has at least reached a balance in this respect. Don't wish for something so different because, your wishes can come true. Hua Hin is a better family resort because of the tighter control. I believe that for 99% of the time Hua Hin residents and visitors would agree, for the 1% Pattaya, Bangkok and a few other destinations would maybe suit them better.
I don't believe in one minute that 99% of the time Hua Hin residents and visitors would agree, and
about 20 years ago before this city being over flooded with grumpy old men (many of them I think was here at that time) the bar could be open nearly 24/7 if they wan't.
Yes, I now thing change, but at the same time people say they move here from their home country
because there's to many rules etc. but maybe it's ok with rules as long as it don't affect them.
And I would like to hear if the bar owners that are happy with the midnight closure,will be happy
when the high season appears.
I'm 54 and out play pool on wednesday and sometimes one more day at the week,so please stop
this Pattaya,Bangkok or Phuket cr.b there should be room for everyone.
and have a nice day every one.
