No alcohol sales and consumption today for Visakha Bucha Day

The Royal Thai police have reminded everyone that today is a Buddhist holiday and there is to be no alcohol sold throughout the country – or else. 

The word came from up on high in the government via the RTP chief General Chakthip Chaijinda to his spokesman Pol Col Krissada Pattanacharoen.



The ban for Visakha Bucha Day is in place from midnight last night to midnight tonight – a 24 hour period.

People caught selling alcohol are liable to a 10,000 baht fine and six months in jail – and Krissada said the police mean business.

The holiday marks the birth, enlightenment and death of the Lord Buddha.

Monday is a national day off because the holiday falls on a weekend.
