There are strict rules against smoking in restaurants, bars, public transport etc however you may find some of the open air restaurants have a smoking section such as Ruan Thai in Pattaya but you'll usually be in the least pleasent section. Often if they are full they'll seat people without telling them its a smoking area and I've seen whole families pick up their plates and eat standing up to get away from the smoke.

Thanks for the replies Guys, I was in Thailand about 7 years ago and don't remember it being a problem. Ah well I guess I'll have to accept it if it's the norm. Thailand here We come

In all bars you will find the signs "NO SMOKING".

But if you start smoking, as per what I have noticed, in 9 bars out of 10 they will bring you an ash-tray !

This is Pattaya !
