Entertainment zones in Kata-Karon

Dozens of new beer bars, with entertainment ladies, have opened on Patak Rd. Many of these girls step out onto the road to flag down customers, even families with kids. I thought that new beer bars were not allowed, or that they were restricted to specific zones?

The proposed entertainment zones for Kata-Karon are: – Patak Rd East, from Wat Suwannaket to the Karon Circle, and stretching 100 meters out from either side of the road; – Luang Por Chuan Rd, stretching 100 meters out from either side of the road; – Tai Na Rd, stretching 100 meters out from either side of road; – Within a radius of 100 meters of the Kata Center intersection. These proposed zones have not yet been passed by parliament, and hence are not yet in effect.
