Is there any particular reason for this?

The Thai government knows that a big percentage of westerners have drink problems and IMO, that is why it is done. Any excuse that they can think of suffices.

The Immigration big wigs hate us, but I do not think that applies to all of the IOs although some of them could watch their attitude at times.

Until further notice is just ridiculous. I hope there are riots

I don't, because riots can result in deaths and injuries to innocent people.

I wonder if the junta have made one good decision in the last 5/6 years?

I personally can't think of any

Oh yes, a lot, but only for themselves.

As a non drinker, I have to admit that alcohol is non essential, and it is wrong to ban it, just as it is also wrong to close down bars for religious reasons.

And why is it wrong to ban alcohol, that causes behavioural problems that can make the job of curfew, distancing and lockdown more difficult? There might be a large number of sensible expat drinkers that are inconvenienced for a time, but this is Thailand and it's the behaviour of a very large population of younger people that are the concern here.

Add Khon Kaen to the list. I am way out in the boonies. The police just came to the mom and pop stores and put up a ban from April 12 - 17. All we have are small mom and pop stores within a 15 k radius of me. None are selling. A friend went out to get some whiskey and about two hours later he came back empty. They are serious about it this time.

People don't seem to understand the plot here.

Everybody complains about the government not doing anything too reduce the number of deaths on the road, especially at songkran, and we know that a lot of them are linked to drinking.

Can you not see that by banning alcohol now over Songkran, it could show that there is a big reduction in deaths.

This is a perfect opportunity to try this strategy out, then it could be justified to repeat every year.  😱

 

Oh, and also be extended to new year. 😱😱😱

No. Khon Kaen and Udon Thani have at least banned the sale of alcohol. In Udon Thani its between the 11th until 30th April, and police is driving around in villages to warn shop owners of hefty fines if the sell alcohol  Official posters in all 7-eleven, BigC and Makro stores. People in Nong Khai and Bueng Kan also say its banned there as well.

looking at most of those dates shows the ban has nothing to do with Songkran 

Who said that it was suppose to be ?
