Bangkok bans sale of alcohol 10th to 20th April

Recommended Posts

I ordered a few cases from Tesco shopping online and the delivery date is not for the 14th. 

I guess Tesco will cancel my order even though it was placed before this ban

Yes they changed the taste when the government put up taxes on alcohol a few years ago..they also sneakily  reduced the  actual beer in the bottle   from 630 to 620 ML  but covered that with a new

sticker on the neck of the bottle.

Is that right? Interesting. Sneaky. 

I often wonder if it's me that's changed, sometimes maybe it is, sometimes not.

it will affect you. these small shops stock up every 2 days from makro etc.

 

can't be compared to a 1-2 day buddhist ban

no no i live here the 6th year, on the main road are 2 big shops with a lot of boxes of beers. They sell also alcohol on special holidays back door for Thais only. The small shop owners can buying also on Buddhist holidays or on election days. Jumping on the motorbike and in between a couple of minutes refill of beer is guaranteed 365 days a year.

So no problem for sure. I will go visit at 5 pm to my favourit shop and will confirm that with him.

They are ramping up the penalties for illegal sales so don't be so sure!
