Smoking ban set for pubs, outdoor markets

 

(BangkokPost.com) - Smoking will be banned in all air-conditioned entertainment venues throughout the country next month, according to the Ministry of Public Health.

 

 

The new ban, expected to be imposed on Feb 17, will stop smokers from smoking in nightclubs, pubs and open-air markets including the Chatuchak weekend market, said Dr Hatai Chitanond of the ministry's Health Promotion Institute.

 

 

"We believe there will be some resistance from operators of nightclubs and pubs because they may fear the ban will reduce their customers," he said. "I'm willing to talk to them more about the ban if they rally."

 

 

Outdoor restaurants will be required to set up nonsmoking areas.

 

 

Those breaking the restrictions will face a fine of 2,000 baht.

More coffe money fore the police .

 

 

Us non-smokers should be so lucky. When the alcohol bans were on for a couple nights before the election, the customers who couldn't drink also didn't smoke much. The air was clear, the girls were happy their hair didn't stink, and I could stand to stay in a go-go for more than 30 minutes. I thought enforcement would be a problem in restaurants when that ban was put in place. Instead, it seems to be working well.

I agree with Bolton that its good news for us non smokers. But i would bet that it won't be enforced in anyway in Pattaya.

GOtta admit, I'll be looking forward to doing the go-gos a lot more without the smoke! It's the main reason I tend to do the outdoor bars more than the aircon ones. Freedom at last! :D

It sounds good for all us non smokers but I find it hard to believe many venues or the BiB will enforce it.

What do we talk about?

 

"to smoke" = inhaling the fume of cigarettes

 

or

 

"to smoke" = giving head...

 

;o)

 

Back to topic: I like it the new way, because these damn aircons go on my nerves so much, if You add the dust from the smokers procedure, it gets really odd.

 

And! In clubs such as "Insomnia" [thek] i always fear to get burned by those drunk smokers, holding their cigis carelessly...

 

So: Great times are about to cum for me! ;)

dont sound too good to me would affect trade

Really? Do people go to bars in Pattaya to smoke cigarettes (to avoid confusion :D ), or do they go to meet women? They go to meet women, of course. And if all the bars in town are under the same restrictions, then there should be no net loss. If anything, the indoor bars are likely to do better, as the non smokers are less likely to stay away.

 

As for general business in Pattaya, it's not in the business of providing a place for people to smoke and relax after work -- it's in the business of providing adult entertainment. And people will come regardless of any smoking bans.

Exactly. All the restaurant/bar owners around here said the new smoking ban would kill their business. Instead, more people came out and stayed longer, giving them a big net gain.

so is this smoking ban just in Bangkok or is Pattaya affected also? Being a non-smoker, I have enjoyed the non-smoking laws in California. I know that they are trying to get some of the same laws in Las Vegas

Apparently it is for AIR CONDITIONED BARS AND RESTAURANTS. Open air bars will have non-smoking seating available.

 

From Google News:

 

Smokers in Thailand will soon be banned from lighting up in nightclubs, pubs, and open-air markets, the Public Health Ministry has said.

 

The new ban, scheduled to take effect Feb. 17, will apply to all air-conditioned entertainment venues, toughening earlier restrictions that affected only air-conditioned restaurants, said Hatai Chitanond of the ministry's Health Promotion Institute.

 

Outdoor restaurants will be required to set up nonsmoking areas.

 

Smokers violating the ban will be fined 2000 Baht.

Guess the cameras in clubs and bars will come into play on this. Will be interesting to see how the ban will go. Good thing I dont smoke cigs.

The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it?

 

A death. What's that, a bonus ? I think the life cycle is all backwards.

 

You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you're too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work.

 

You work forty years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement.

 

You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities.

 

You become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating... you finish off as an orgasm.

 

It's perfect !

Stickman today says it starts on Feb. 11th. Can't wait. Hope it is at least enforced enough to stop the cigar smoking. I'll be able to breathe in Rainbow 1 and Angelwitch again.

I used to be a smoker and have quit. Quit means I dont smoke except on vacations. I understand this law and support it, but here is my question.

 

Can I still smoke at the open air beer bars?

My GF mentioned this ban on the phone. I told her that I thought it wouldn't be enforced. She seemed to think that it will be. Perhaps there is stuff in the Thai media about this and they will enforce it.

 

Personally I would love for them to enforce it in the enclosed venues. I have no problems with people smoking in the open beer bars but not in enclosed bars as the ventilation is never good enough.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
