Proposed alcohol ban for New Year and Songkran

Recommended Posts

Do they state anywhere what is defined as a "Public Place"?

Only a couple I can think of:

Public places, so that means you can drink in a pub etc, yes or no?

You, unlike half the half wits on the forum, have hit the nail on the head. Restaurant and Bars are not public places, but the streets, squares, bus stations, railway stations and the like are public places. Do wish more people would read more carefully what is written angry.png.pagespeed.ce.Cla6z9sEn6HzEDnCl

I have been looking to a have one of those laughs that don't stop for a long time. I will be smiling as I go to bed tonight. Thank you for this utter nonsense. I also suggest no sex during this time, including between husband and wife, and free food for everyone!

Thiis gets proposed every year but has not been implemented.....what I would propose is that anyone caught drunk driving or causing accident during these periods be sent to jail for a year...then there might be fewer accidents in holidays in the future,

Why ban alcohol for the 97% who are not driving drunk ?

Which New year are they referring to, The Thai or the westeren. If the latter, I think it will severely hurt the tourist industry if you can´t get a drink at your local restaurant or pub, on the largest drinking day of the year....

Ah what the h3ll. Just change the national religion to Islam coffee1.gif

Well, I am from a country majority of people are Muslim. People can drink freely anytime anywhere is allowed which are retaurants, bars etc etc. you can buy alcohol anytime from and liquor shop or market. Although public drinking is illegal there places that many people drink freely and dont bother nobody. Even in Ramadan, nothing changes.

A sensible response.

Unfortunately Thais are not s sensible.

Before you call other people names, public places are also the parks in Naklua which will be crowded with people having picnics, and those on the beach enjoying the fireworks. The list of public places where alcohol is consumed is huge. Do you advocate fathers being dragged from the New Years Fireworks Show for having a beer. Indeed, I can think of many names to throw back. Try not to be confrontational.

All this does is tell the people the government sucks and they'll ignore anything that comes from that direction afterwards. Nice going.

What constitutes a 'public place' in Thailand ?

Is it the street or park ? Or does it mean bars and restaurants ?

This sounds like a fun New years NOT !!

Read the full thread people. It clearly says PUBLIC places. That means on the street, in parks at the Zoo etc. It doesn't mean bars and clubs.
