The measure will be scrapped "to create a favourable climate for tourism", the military said in a televised announcement.
"The rest of the country remains under curfew," it added.
The curfew was initially introduced after the May 22 coup for the whole country for 10:00 pm until 5:00 am, to the dismay of the owners of bars and other late-night businesses.
The junta shortened it to midnight until 4:00 am late last month.
