Thai men sit next to a no-smoking sign displayed at a restaurant in Pattaya on February 9, 2008. This weekend is supposed to be the last chance for smokers in Thailand to take a puff in public, but around Bangkok restaurant and bar owners said they didn’t believe a new ban on smoking would work. Starting 11 February, smoking in bars, restaurants and even open-air markets can be punished with a 2,000 baht (60 USD) fine. Owners of venues that allow smoking could face a 20,000 baht fine.
