Las_VegasAfter plans have been announced to collect an “entry fee” for Thailand and raise the airport departure tax, a double whammy for tourists to the sought-after holiday destination, another blow made the rounds on October 25.

Due to the passing-away of an esteemed high-ranking Buddhist cleric, Supreme Patriarch Somdet Phra Nyanasamvara, who died at age 100 on October 24, the government has declared a mourning period of 30 days.

But not only this, the national police chief ordered entertainment venues across the country to refrain from holding “joyful shows and performances” for 15 days, from October 25 to November 8. The 15-day period could be further extended, he added.

It was not immediately clear if the closing would be strictly enforced, though.
