Yes of course they want to strike a deal now after seeing Khaosan Road a ghost town. a compromise has been struck. could always ask the tourists, do you find it charming

The compromise was reached a week after new city rules were rushed into effect Aug. 1. The vendors, who complained they were never consulted, defied them. Enforcement fell flat when local police refused to take action because it was against traffic law to move vendors into the street as Sakoltee wanted.

 the deputy governor said he doesn’t see why anyone finds it charming.

“What is the charm of Khaosan Road? If Thai people want to see its charm as a disorderly mess where illegal stalls are on the sidewalk, I can’t allow that to happen under my responsibility,” he said. “City Hall only wants to regulate the place. Vendors will be able to sell here but with a better environment and safety.”

Khaosan Road vendors back down on threat to defy pavement ban

 Khaosan Road, a couple days ago a bustling street with foreign tourists and hawkers both day and night, was a bit lonely on Thursday without signs of street food stalls, clothing stalls or tattoo booths on its sidewalks.

“It was like a deserted street,” Nutcha Aree, a vendor who had been trading there for over 14 years, told The Nation. She said that after an evening talk with city hall’s Deputy Governor Sakoltee Phattiyakul the night before, Khaosan Road Street Vendors Association had decided to back down from its threat to continue encroaching on the sidewalk pavement during the day.
