Visakha Bucha Day tomorrow – alcohol sales ban

Tomorrow (24 May) is Visakha Bucha Day which marks the birth, enlightenment and death of Buddha.

It’s a public holiday but Patong Language School will be open and lessons will be held here as usual.

As with every holy day here in Thailand, alcohol sales will be banned at all shops, bars and restaurants. The 24 hour ban starts at midnight tonight and will be in place for all of Friday, ending just after midnight.
