The military junta is considering whether to exempt certain tourist destinations from curfew imposition, a spokesman of the junta said.
Nattawat Chancharoen, deputy spokesman of the National Council for Peace and Order, said the popular destinations, such as Phuket and Pattaya, may be exempted from curfew after officials deem them as being peaceful.
He said NCPO chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha has learned of complaints from tourism operators the curfew affected their businesses, so the working committee on economy and security was ordered by Prayuth to work out measures to help the operators.
