Tourists FURIOUS As Thailand Nightlife Cancelled For A MONTH

Imagine you had booked your end of year holiday to beautiful Thailand, only to realise that your dream getaway wasn’t exactly what you expected.

In honour of the death of the Thai king, the Thai nightlife has been completely shut down and all full moon parties have been cancelled.

You can imagine the outrage from partygoers.

King Bhumibol Adulyadej died from illness on Thursday, aged 88.

As a result, the Thai government has announced a one year mourning period. Part of this period means a month of all nightlife banned, during October, the beginning of the country’s high season, with up to three million tourists arriving every single month.

But the death of King Bhumibol Adulyadej at the age of 88 sparked a national period of mourning with foreigners urged to swap their bikinis and shorts for 'muted, subdued clothing' to avoid offending locals.

Bangkok’s infamous red light districts are deserted as strip bars and brothels were forced to close indefinitely - with many fearing alcohol sales could be banned for up to 30 days.

Western tourists are outraged, complaining that the rule has ruined their holiday.

Tourists have been asked to ‘respect the feelings’ of locals at this time.
