PHUKET:-- Phuket Vice Governor Snith Sriwihok has confirmed that the legal closing time for entertainment venues outside of the entertainment zones in Patong and Karon is midnight, despite an open admission from local nightlife venue operators last week that they continued to trade until 1am.

 

The oddity presented itself when a group of nightlife venue operators from throughout Muang District – encompassing Phuket Town, Chalong, Rawai, Kata and Karon – submitted a petition addressed to Phuket Governor Norraphat Plodthong last Wednesday (Aug 2).

 

The petition called for the government to “extend” nightlife trading hours “from 1am to 3:30am”.
