So what's the legal age for drinking in Thailand? This confuses me...

Funny how so many people get their knickers in a knot when talking about the Full Moon party on Koh Phangan, when in reality it is relatively mild compared to this story ...and this is most likely just one of hundreds of such places.

 

It's "high" time the government legalised drugs, so some controls can be brought in. After all, keeping them illegal seems to be pointless as each successive generation listens less and less to the bullshit anti-drug campaigners spout.

Similar attitudes have compounded the problem the world faces today. It's akin to someone saying that they hope that everyone who drinks is diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver and dies.

I wondered where the "Pubs" were in Thailand, now I know they are those nightclub places like the Tawan Daeng in Udon Thani - not real Public Houses at all!

There are plenty pubs along sukhumvit....and kaosanroad has plenty but they also sell food.

 

Most neighbourhoods also have one but it looks very dodgy and unfriendly...i never see customers going in/out of those and the wife thinks they sell drugs there. I've also never ever seen people go in/out of those huge shorttime hotels, even not at night.

 

Pattaya, Samui and the lot also have plenty..

 

But during new year i've seen loads of thai kids sitting on the streets with alcohol.

Sounds like a sizeable venue which is popular... just wonder how it's been operating for so long without a licence????

On Thursday early morning, police raided Back Mountain Pub in Saraburi’s Nong Khae district and arrested hundreds of revelers.

 

SARABURI — Five Saraburi police were removed from their positions following a raid that found a pub packed with underage revelers and rampant drug use.

 

Five members of the Nong Khae police force Thursday were removed from active duty and ordered to report to regional police headquarters for dereliction of duty after 128 minors were found at the Back Mountain Pub on Halloween night. Officers said 130 attendees tested positive for drugs.
