Bangkok, Thailand - Despite the midnight curfew imposed by Thailand's new military junta, which took over the country's government on May 22, tourists along Bangkok's Khaosan Road continue to party well after the permitted hours.

Some of the main restaurants in the area close at around 15 minutes before midnight, but stalls and bars on the main road can stay open as late as sunrise.

The president of the Tourism Council of Thailand, Piyaman Tejapaibul, has petitioned the junta to lift the curfew in Phuket and other tourist hotspots throughout the country.

Thailand's tourist industry has been in decline due to street protests that have rocked the country since last November.
