It is now official! Consumption of spirits and other alcoholic beverages is allowed in restaurants, hotels, food courts and food gardens from Monday 15th June 2020.
Earlier today Taweesil Witsanuayotin, spokesman for the Ministry of Education announced that alcohol can be served in restaurants and hotels but the ban is still in place for bars and entertainment venues. The curfew will also be lifted on Monday.
This will come as a relief for many restaurant owners in Chiang Mai and across Thailand as restrictions are beginning to be lifted.
