Bangkok Governor Aswin Kwanmuang issued an announcement today, further easing restrictions on eateries in the capital, by allowing them to serve alcohol to customers up to 11pm from December 1st.

Same rules for koh samui also?

I wonder how many bars that never did food before will now offer food to qualify as an eatery?

Several places in Ireland started using food delivery services get around the rule last lockdown. Law was soon changed to mandate that the food had to be cooked on the premises!

What is the difference with current situation? I was in Bangkok a week ago and tbh it was difficult not to find alcohol in any place.

I suppose the important difference is, is that its legal now, rather than illegal

Plenty of places being raided by the police & people being fined for breaking the law

Not sure that it was illegal before. In Chiang Mai many places are still offering beers despite the ban, but they sit you in the backyard or away from the main street to avoid attracting police's attention.

But in Bangkok it was too obvious to be illegal :)
