Bangkok bans sale of alcohol 10th to 20th April

Its a good idea to ban alcohol sales in Thailand and I personally welcome it. 🤞

 

I say this because I have returned to Germany with my Thai family where the beer flows like water, costs about 10 THB per pint and is delivered to your door by the crate. 🍻

 

Here we will drink our way through the Coronavirus Crisis then sober up once it is over. 👯‍♀️

 

After that we will return to Thailand where (because of the ban) there will be massive stockpiles of cheap beer available to celebrate our return.🍾

How selfish can you get! Watch out you don't catch the Covid 19 virus in Germany

Most long timers here have been through the rounds, the majority end up with Leo as their 'go to' beer.

 

Totally agree. LEO is the stand by beer for most longterm expats.

Time to head down to Makro before Prachuap implements a ban too

Too late...they pulled the plug already until the end of April & with no advance warning....that really sucks!  I also never knew that the Corona Virus liked alcohol; I've always understood it feared it?  🙂

I understand how banning alcohol will  prevent  social  gatherings , BUT  when are they going to Ban street Markets from operating, because in East Pattaya  every Soi that has a market is working and is full of local people

I've become bored of beer recently, so I'll just use this as an opportunity to give it up for a while, we're all getting fatter now anyway... 

There's plenty of other things to do now while practising Self Isolation..OnLine Yoga,Pilates and Zumba.You'll be a new more hamsome man by the end of this!

They are running out of ideas to make all of this more miserable

I am running out of ideas as to why people like you seem to lack the most basic common sense. How old are you? 15? If you're so miserable leave and find a better place. We don't want to hear your juvenile whining. The rest of us whose common sense is intact and functioning can see that alcohol is a fuel and catalyst for social gathering,  and whether one thinks it extreme or not one cannot fault the government for doing everything it can to ratchet back the numbers no matter how small an effect. I am not quite that conservative, but DUH this is not my country and it is not my business to second guess the measures which Thailand opts to take. This is not some contentious bureaucratic or immigration red tape issue, it's the public health at stake. It's my choice as an adult as to whether to live here or not. As an adult. Not a whining child. The corona cases in the very small state Connecticut where I'm from the US are nearly 10,000. Thailand reports about 2,400 and is not growing in numbers nearly as fast as in the US. And even if you think Thailand is underreporting there is no doubt that Thailand is faring much better than much of the western world. So do try to post some intelligent, useful, mature comments once in a while, won't you?

Less alchohol during the Songkran period, with or without water fights will reduce socialising, and if it is only for 10 days, as in some places, not so bad. It's the danger of the ten days becoming another ten days, and then another that is worrying.

agree

No common sense whatsoever ! Self isolating without beer will see one very unhappy bunny indeed..... herd about other areas banning alcohol ‘ my problem there was no warning for the area I’m living otherwise would have stocked up,. As the Thais would say som na na me 🤐
